5 Oz. Exclusive: Herman vs. Schall to headline Oct. 10 ShoXC

A heavyweight clash between undefeated sensation Dave “Pee Wee” Herman and Kerry Schall, a veteran of season two of “The Ultimate Fighter,” is set to headline EliteXC’s ShoXC event scheduled for Friday, Oct. 10 at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana. confirmed the news earlier today with both EliteXC Vice President Jared Shaw and Herman’s manager, Mike Camp of F1 Management.

Herman is 2-0 since making his EliteXC debut earlier this year and is 11-0 overall. Fighting on the undercard of EliteXC’s “Street Certified” in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. on Feb. 16, Herman TKO’d American Top Team heavyweight Mario Rinaldi at 0:33 of round 3.

He returned on June 14 during the promotion’s “Return of the King” event and needed just 2:19 of round 1 to TKO former UFC and PRIDE veteran Ron Waterman.

In addition to having been involved with TUF 2, Schall has one career UFC bout to his credit. Facing Keith Jardine on the undercard of the live season finale, Schall was TKO’d in the second round due to leg kicks.

Having competed frequently on regional shows throughout the Midwest, Schall has compiled a 21-10 record with notable wins over Wade Hamilton and Brian Ebersole. He also holds the distinction of having lost to WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko in 2001 while competing in Japan’s Rings promotion. In that bout, Schall was forced to tap to an armbar at 1:47 of round 1.

EliteXC’s next ShoXC event is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 26 in Ynez, Calif. at the Chumash Casino & Resort. The event, which will be televised live on SHOWTIME, will feature undefeated Wilson Reis and King of the Cage bantamweight (135 lbs.) champion Abel Cullum fighting for the vacant EliteXC bantamweight (140 lbs.) title.

    here’s a little math for ya:

    Herman+Schall = Herman r1 KO

    Herman is wayyyy too good for EXC..
    the guy hurts his opponents within the 1st minute everytime, and then uses the rest of his time to try new moves out, like axe kicks and stuff..

    you know you’re a beast when you can do that..

    a HW that could win alone with just his ground game, but has an even better standup = the next big thing.. and that’s Pee Wee for ya..

  • Joseph says:

    Pee Wee is awesome. Cant waint for his fight on Oct. 10 ShoXC.

  • fightfan says:

    Sucks a guy like Herman is struggling to make a buck and get recognized……and you got a donkey like Kslice(who Herman would annihilate) headlining and making nice cash fighting

  • Rich S. says:

    ya, and it sucks that he’s not getting any decent names either.. except for waterman.. and that was a destruction..

    it just seems like they’d realize he’s on another level, and start moving him into more important fights like with Big foot, or eilers, or rogers or something..

  • aaronb says:

    It’s called a buildup. His first fight was on an undercard. His second fight was on Showtime. His third will be on Showtime as a headliner. Short of $kala giving him a handjob in the next EXC primetime commercial, what the hell are they supposed to do? This is the normal evolution of building up a prospect.

  • Rich S. says:

    i know you have to build people up..
    but seriously..
    he destroys dudes..

  • dpk says:

    I would just love to see this guy and Carwin across the cage from each other. Maybe Elite will fold soon, and it can happen.

  • Robert says:

    Dave Herman is the best heavyweight in Elite XC he beat down Ron Waterman an should easily get past Kerry Schall who did not look good in his fight with Adrenaline.
