Dave â€œPee-Weeâ€ Herman has been consistently dispatching of decent foes for nearly five years. Heâ€™s secured victories for numerous quality promotions, including ShoXC, Sengoku, Shark Fights and Bellator Fighting Championships.
Throughout his journey heâ€™s secured an incredibly impressive 20-2 professional record. Amongst his most notable wins lie victims such as Don Frye, Ron Waterman, Mario Rinaldi and Jim York. In short, this is a man well versed in toppling mid-level opposition.
Now, according to MMAweekly.com, inside sources have confirmed Hermanâ€™s signing, and expect the 6'5â€œ wrestler to debut at UFC 131. No potential opponent has been named at this point.
Insiders are already predicting a baptism by fire for Herman, as heâ€™s proven time and again capable of knocking off decent fighters. But, is tossing Herman to the wolves for his debut a wise idea? Experienced or not, no one avoids the first time jitters that accompany UFC debuts, and it would be a shame to see a stellar prospect forced into a meeting an elite opponent having not been given the chance to acclimate to his new surroundings.
Hereâ€™s hoping Joe Silva establishes a solid, but beatable opponent for Hermanâ€™s debut.
