Who should Sherk's 1st title defense be against?
 
If Stevenson wins at UFC 65, does that put him at the top of the list?

I think it should be either Spencer Fisher or Jens Pulver. After those two I put Melvin Guillard in the race as well.

who cares, make the ufc test him for steroid use first.

I don't think that Jens has a chance in hell. Even though JLau might have been a fluke, he still showed how sloppy his fighting style is. I don't think he'll get a shot for a while, and if he does I will not be happy about it. :mad:

Stevenson might be next in line, but I do think he should fight another top contender first, just to see how good he really is and whether he even has a chance in hell at stopping Sherk.

Spencer should probably be the guy fighting Joe, and I think he can actually win that fight and get a shot the title. He is a solid fighter and his knees are brutal. The worst big KO weapon for a wrestler to face are those knees, so that could actually get kind of interesting.

I think Guillard may have the best chance of all of these guys at beating Sherk. He's training with team Punishment now, so he's rounding himself out as a fighter. I think he's the most athletic fighter in the lightweight division and his explosiveness has been pretty shocking, especially lately. But he's young, so I think he'll take a few more fights to mature and really establish himself. Still, he's going to do great things in this division.

I hope Guillard will get it because he'd put up the best fight but Spencer Fisher is also coming up and should maybe get a title shot if he beats someone with a name.

i think that spencer fisher is the next in line. then after that if joe stevenson wins at ufc 65 then that should put him at the top of the ladder as well. maybe even melvin guillard if he gets one more win.

ha ha ya sherk looks like a roid user.

They shouldn't have a title fight yet. They should have the division battle it out for a bit. The fighters with the best record and most exciting fights should be ranked as such and then we play "king of the hill".

Truthfully, Joe Stevenson hasn't impressed me; they made him seem like some sort of phenom and he isn't. Jens Pulver was sloppy. Spencer Fisher and Melvin G. are exciting but they need more fights before they go for a belt. The Lauzon are good new additions. Let them duke it out for a buit and then start giving people shots for the belt. In my opinion, the UFC puts people up for the belt so quickly that you end up with peoplequestioning who deserves a shot constantly. Make them really earn it and keep them hungry.

i think melvin should get a shot just not yet. give him like two more fights. right now i think joe stevenson should be next depending on how he does in his next fight. then spencer then melvin.

I've said this before. If Guillard and Stevenson bot continue to win, it would be really unfair to Stevenson if Guillard got the shot first. They both have one loss since TUF and they were both to Josh Neer at WW. Since Stevenson won TUF that Guillard was in he should get it before Melvin. Whether Melvin is more exciting or not.
