Why are people saying Sherk is a Snooze fest?

Just because he had one fight that went all 5 rounds with him on the ground doesn't meen it's a snooze fest. He obviously did not want to stand with Franca, so he took it to the ground, where Franca would have an advantage because of his BJJ.

Have you guys not seen the Florian vs Sherk fight? Quit judging fighters off one fight that was fought a smart fight.

agreed and repped

i thought the sherk/florian fight was great, and the sherk/franca fight was good too

both franca and florian are known for being VERY hard to finish as well, keep that in mind.

Sean Sherk:

33 fights.
8 fights won via knockout.
13 fights won via submission.
9 decisions.
2 losses.
1 draw.

The fact is, most MMA fans haven't seen Sherk's fights outside of the UFC, and the fact he has yet to finish a fight in the most popular MMA organization sticks out like a sore thumb as a "Snoozefest" quality.

I enjoy watching him fight because he's so aggressive, he works hard.

WTF is a "sooze" fest? Why don't people check the spelling of atleast the title of their thread. How do you expect people to take you serously when you can't even properly articulate your point. Sigh

Sooz

So I guess a sooze fest is some kind of hippie party. Personally I can't imagine Sherk smoking from a bong, so I agree with the thread starter.

Yeah that fight was just as much Franca's fault for it being boring as it was Sherks. Sherk executed brilliant takedowns and Franca was defending against his punches. So Franca defending is also to blame for those people saying Sherk is boring.
