Jon Olav Einemo is the newest member of the UFC heavyweight roster.

The organization has officially signed the Norwegian big man, a UFC official confirmed with MMA Fighting on Monday. No word just yet on the exact terms of the deal and when he will debut inside the Octagon.

As MMA Fighting first reported last month, the UFC and Einemo have been in serious talks for several weeks.

Jesus I almost forgot this guy existed. Exciting acquisition, I think he should fight Stefan Struve

sounds like his submission game is good. hasnt really fought anybody for being 35yrs old other than werdum. god forbid i say this but sherdog has him at 220lbs. hopefully hes a little bigger than that if hes gonna compete with the HW's of today. good choice though.
