Whoever said I can't spell, The title thread says SNOOZE. Snooze as in being, makes you go to sleep, etc. etc.

I never use the term snoozefest, just seeing a lot of people saying Sherk is a snoozefest.

The title said "Sooze" when I first posted in it, I just never felt the need to point it out.

I don't know about anybody else but Sherk had the opportunity during the franca fight to pound him out with punches when he had his back but Sherk decided to just keep circling around him.

Sherk also, IMO, shows no versatility. His goal is always to get the fight to the ground and then do almost nothing when he gets there except control the guy. Which is good becuase he is winning the fight but it's not exciting. He says his stand up is improved but we never see it. I only saw it in the Diaz fight.

Lastly Sherk hasn't won a fight by a finish since St. Pierre took him down and beat his face in. I guess he's playin it safe now

Bores the hell outta me. Granted I haven't seen the fight since it aired, did Sherk ever once posture up while he was on top of Franca? Did he not just lay on him and throw some elbows to the face and some punches to the side of the head? He never seems to want to finish, he seems very content to wrestle with the occasional strikes.
