Norwegian submission machine, Jon Olav Einemo in negotiations with the UFC

Top rated Norwegian submission machine, Jon Olav Einemo is in the latter stages of negotiations with the UFC in what could make for a very interesting addition to the promotions heavyweight roster.

The news comes from a source within the promotions ranks that revealed the news earlier today and that they hope to have contracts signed in coming days.

Einemo won his first five professional MMA fights before losing to Fabricio Werdum back at PRIDE 31 in 2006. He rebounded with a win over James Thompson before leaving the MMA world for four years. He returned last June to defeat Kresimir Bogdanovic in Bosnia. He is also the only fighter to defeat multiple-time Brazilian Jiu Jitsu champion Roger Gracie at the Abu Dhabi tournament.
