UFC has signed Jon Olav Einemo

Decent signing I guess? Einemo is kind of old, but he could still give a lot of guys problems with his BJJ. Hopefully they match him up with a guy like McCorkle or Broughton and let him climb the ladder.

I know nothing about him but a BJJ Black Belt who has submitted Roger Gracie at a grappling tournament who trains at Golden Glory sounds scary.

Sounds like he could definitely submit Carwin, Brock, and Cain.

the only loss on his actual mma record is to Werdum via decison.

He has but 8 total mma fights with wins over such legends of the sport as Jame Thompson.... In other words at his age, with his lack of real mma experience I wouldn't expect him to challenge for the title.

That being said he is clearly an elite grappler and may be an interesting addition to the UFC's heavyweight division which certainly requires some added depth.

Snap up Overeem and Big Foot and we really would have an exciting division

I've heard about it the other day and I think it's a great addition to the HW division. Golden Glory rules combat sports right now and I'm really looking forward to see him fight.

He would be, but he's not scary considering the flesh eating virus essentially destroyed one of his feet and he fights practically with one foot. His striking is as good as its about to get being able to plant essentially on only one foot.

Middle of the road heavyweight. He'll submit your Sean McCorkle, Mark Hunt, Joey Beltran but lose to your Stefan Struve, Matt Mitrione, Jon Madsen etc
