The Norwegian has not competed on the professional scene since November 2006 due to unfortunate leg infection. However, his last fight went victorious. It garnered a submission win over James Thompson during the “Too Hot To Handle: Pride and Honor.”

Einemo was the first man to defeat ADCC absolute champion, Roger Gracie. In the MMA scene, five out of Einemo’s six professional wins were via first round submission.
