Dave “Pee-Wee” Herman becomes 2nd fighter this month to leave Sengoku for UFC, debuts vs. Rob Broughton at 131

Talented middleweight, Dave “Pee-Wee” Herman has become the second high profile fighter to leave Japanese based MMA promotion, Sengoku this month, signing with the Las Vegas based promotion, the UFC and is expected to make his Octagon debut at UFC 131 in June against Rob Broughton.

A source close to the fighter revealed the news earlier today, adding a lack of fights and the uncertainty with Japanese based mixed martial arts prompted the decision.

Herman (20-2-0) holds 18 of his wins in the very first round. He also holds notable victories over the likes of Ron Waterman, Don Frye and Jim York. “Pee-Wee” will certainly be a great addition to the UFC’s Sengoku middleweight roster.

Rob Broughton (15-5-1) returns to action at UFC 131 in June after defeating Vinicius Kappke de Queiroz in his Octagon debut last October in England. Broughton has faced several top fighters while in the United Kingdom, but now he’ll be traveling to North America for his next fight in June.
