UFC 64 To Feature Big Title Fights
 
Instead of finding a replacement for Kenny Florian at UFC 62, the company is eyeing the 10/14 UFC 64 PPV for the vacant Lightweight Championship match between Florian and Sean Sherk.

Florian cited a need to further train in withdrawing from the UFC 62 show, but he apparently will be ready in October.

According to the same report from the Wrestling-Observer Newsletter, Tim Sylvia will defend his Heavyweight Championship against Jeff Monson at the same show. Monson is training with Mark Coleman and Wes Sims for the matchup.

The original plan was to feature Rich Franklin's next Middleweight title defense at the October show, but it is unclear if that fight will still take place.

It is known, however, that UFC is hoping to load up the PPV to steal thunder from PRIDE, which runs in Las Vegas on 10/21, so there likely will be another marquee fight.

Spyder says, I dont know how accurate this Wrestling Observe is, but it seems interesting. Because Franklin said, he is ready to fight in Oct. @ 64. Who knows...

well I certainly wouldnt call these fights blockbusters......Sylvia (as much as i hate him) is going to bulldoze Monson and I feel the same for Sherk over KenFlo....hopefully the undercard has some good matches as well though

Don't count Monson out, i think he's got a damn good chance, unlike AA i think Monson will go for a take down.

and ya Sherk will dominate.

I don't think you guys are giving KenFlo enough credit. This guy is a good smart fighter and I think he will be a tough fight for Sherk. I do not see anyone dominating this one. If I had to pick a winner it would be Sherk but not by domination.

Spit206Fire 07-28-2006 01:33 PM

Sherk is just to strong. Right now he walks around at 175 and i think Kenflo walks around about 165 or 160ish. There's only a few submissions that can save kenflo in that type of strength difference.

Sylvia Monson Will Suck Tim Will Knock Him Out In The 2nd Round ...and Sherk Will Tko Kenny In The 2nd

Good luck!

I hope Tim Sylvia owns Monson! I'll pick Sherk over Florian.

I think Tim will take Monson lightly and get taken down. That will be funny to see if you think about it. Then AA should come back and KO Monson to get his belt back. I think Monson has a better chance at taking down Sylvia than he does AA. AA only went for the take down once on TS, and it was a half ass attempt. JM already said thats his game plan, taking TS down.

Sherk V Kenflo= 45 secs of standup 5 mins total ground game = Sherk rear naked choke on Kenflo who will be crying.

If they think names like Florian and Sylvia are "blockbuster" names, they better file for bankruptcy now.:thumbsdown:
