sherk mauls guys at 170. Pulver won't out muscle the muscle shark. But yeah he does have good boxing but so does sherk. And sherk is used to fighting bigger taller fighter's. Gomi's beat him ludwig's beat him. Sherk has lost to GSP and hughes and that's it.
I don;t think Florian matches up well with Sherk (no 155lb'r does) but he has had some impressive victories in the octagon and he should be given credit for them. He sliced up Leben good with the elbow, he damn near tore off Alex Karalexis's nose with another nasty elbow and he submitted that fighter from Canada easily in the first round. I don't think he will beat Sherk but i do think he is the real deal.
I think Sherk will dominate the lightweight division for a while.
I know this might bring flames, but I think that Hermes Franca is the only lightweight with a chance to beat Sherk. He has great jiu jitsu, good wrestling, and good striking. If they ever do fight, it'll be amazing.
