It's about to get heavy this summer in Canada.
"20-2 Heavyweight Dave "Pee-Wee" Herman has verbally agreed to make his UFC debut against hard hitting Joey Beltran June 11th in Vancouver."
Herman will indeed be making his debut with the world's largest fight promotion after an impressive run through organizations ranging from EliteXC, Sengoku and Bellator.
He was originally booked against Rob Broughton, although no announcement was made as to why the switch to Beltran came to be.
"The Mexicutioner" is fighting more than a game Dave Herman -- he's also likely fighting to remain gainfully employed with the UFC.
Time to get dirty and see if he can't gut one out to keep his job. Can he do it?
UFC 131 is shaping up to be a blockbuster summer event, featuring a main event of massive proportions when Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos collide for the right to face Cain Velasquez for the heavyweight championship.
Mark Munoz is booked to face Demian Maia, while Kenny Florian will make his featherweight debut against wily scrapper Diego Nunes. Shane Carwin will also make his long-awaited return against the debuting Jon Olav Einemo.
