Sherk has always had good hands. If you watch his fight with BJ, the problem he has is not having enough reach. He finally gets to show his striking at this event because the guy he's facing is actually in his reach!
On a side note, did anyone get annoyed of Goldie's comments throughout the fight about Sherk's left hook?
Koscheck really didn't seem like himself in that fight. Yeah, he ate some nasty punches, kicks, and knees, but I refuse to believe that's the Kos that had furious shots that bulldozed everyone else in the division! Perhaps he's rusty from training so much boxing.
