Undefeated EliteXC heavyweight title contender Dave “Pee Wee” Herman is expected to fight for the promotion again in September. was informed of the news by Herman’s manager, Mike Camp, of F1 Management.

An opponent and a date are not yet known, but Herman could compete during an EliteXC event tentatively planned for Friday, Sept. 26.

The former Indiana-Bloomington standout wrestler had been in the running to challenge Antonio Silva this weekend for the vacant EliteXC heavyweight title, but Herman was unable to accept the fight due to a prior commitment.

He last fought on June 14 during EliteXC’s “Return of the King,” recording a TKO victory over former UFC and PRIDE veteran Ron Waterman at 2:19 of round 1.

Herman, 11-0, made his EliteXC debut this past February during the promotion’s “Street Certified” event, where he TKO’d Mario Rinaldi at 0:33 of round 3.

    The return of the Blueberry Muffin!!! Can’t wait see big Dave back in the cage.

  • BJJDenver says:

    Next time out, i want to hear him yell “hiiiiii-yaaaaaaaaa”!

  • I really like this guy he is one of the up and coming HWs that are just solid all around and will make a big splash in the future. Heavyweights like Herman, Carwin, Lesnar and Cain Velasquez are a new breed of HWs that will change the game for years to come.

    We will finally have more then one dimensional HWs as we did in the past as all the fighters previosly mentioned are solid all around in JJ, Boxing, Wrestling and Cardio. Its a great time to be a MMA fan right now I love watching and coveing every minute. Big up 5.Oz I hope my site can get as big as yours one day.

    Awesome- the pee wee herman show is back

  • patrick says:

    great news! This guy is a very exciting fighter and I agree with everything Narcisist said(except i’m not sold on Brock Lesnar yet)

  • Rich S. says:

    Dave Herman = 100% BEAST.

  • Mike says:

    I’ve seen this guy fight. The only reason he has an 11-0 record is he fought chumps. In my opinion Dave Herman is a puss.
