During Wednesday’s Afternoon Press Box, Darren and the boys were joined by new UFC heavyweight Dave “Pee Wee” Herman who made a successful Octagon debut against Jon Olav Einemo at UFC 131 this past weekend, and he picked up a $70,000 “fight of the night” bonus in the process.
Herman talked about his victory, what he feels he needs to improve on and how long it took him to finish a gallon of ice cream and six movies after the bout. And of course, he expounded on his now infamous “Jiu-Jitsu doesn’t work” comment.
In addition to the interview with Herman, the guys recapped UFC 131 and discussed some of the night’s controversial decisions. The guys also pondered Kenny Florian‘s future and the match-up between Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos, which is theoretically scheduled for later this year.
