When "Pee Wee" gets to the Octagon on June 11, tell 'em "Large Marge" sent him.
Herman, who holds 19 stoppages in 20 wins, enters the cage as a -225 favorite.
That might not sound like a lot, considering his opponent hasn't competed in nearly five years. But Einemo is no ordinary opponent. The Norwegian is a deadly grappler and former Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) champion.
The Golden Glory standout is currently a +185 underdog.
