I just cant believe Sherk is paying out 1.95, that's insane. Potential for a huge payout on IMO, good odds.
Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Dunham has a lot to prove in this fight though and it is a huge step up for him.
Sherk has fought guys the same size or taller then Dunham(Florian, Diaz, GSP even Penn is close).
Over his whole career Sherk has only lost to the 2 greatest WW fighters of all time and the 2 best LW fighters in the UFC at the moment.
Aurelio was able to get Dunham down at times and Griffin was outstriking Dunham. Sherk is by far the best wrestler Dunham has fought and he also faired better striking against Griffin. His striking isn't great but it is better then Dunhams imo.
Dunham definitely could take this fight but these odds are way too good to pass up on.
