Hominick is very small, he probably walks around no bigger than 155, whereas Sherk cuts 15 or more to make 155. I like Hominick but I think he is a mismatch with Sherk.

I wouldn't mind seeing the UFC add a 140# division, though.

What i said has nothing to do with that fight. Jens has even said he is not the fighter that beer penn before. And he said this before his fight with lauzon.

I wouldnt really call it lucky though. he was aggressive right off the start getting a quick takedown and not letting pulver work his game for a second. When they stood up right after he continued being aggressive and knocked him out. The randleman punch was more like a wild swing that connected on the button.

Jens needs two or three more fights before they give him another shot at the title. Plus, he obviously needs to work on his game, because Miletich needs another Champion.

I'd love to see BJ fight Sherk, I really think that they match up well. I think BJs submission game would be dangerous, even to someone as strong as Sean Sherk. This fight would be incredible, though I think that Sherk would pull it out with an eventual TKO, because BJs lasting power seems to be a little less than it would need to in a title fight, like we saw against Hughes.

I don't think that Guillard is the #1 Contender right now, I think he's probably down around 3 or 4, but I think that in a few years he'll have a shot at Sherk. When that happens, I expect great things from Melvin. He's got the best standup in the division right now, in my opinion, and training with Tito he will inevitably develop a ground game.

Guillard for champ in 2008, right now Sherk is the man.

i dunno if id rate melvin that high he is great to watch and has very good stand up but his ground game is horrible and almost got finished in his last fight if he wasnt saved by the bell top 10 in ufc lightweights maybe but not top 5 he hasnt really proven himself against anyone big yet and IMO yve edwards has better stand up but im sure he'll have a very bright future in the LW division i mean he's training with tito and thats bound to produce results

Well if clues during the comentating during Joe Stevenson's fight have any merit, it sounds like Fisher is next inline for a title fight. It's hard to tell who really deserves the title shot. Almost none of the top 5 have fought each other. I don't remember there being a lightweight match on the December card. I think Joe has beaten some tough people especially Edwards and Mishima, so he should be close. Who knows?

Sherk cut from 180 for the fight with Kenflo, I am sure he will come down a little because that was no easy task I imagine.

Second fight: Guillard v Fisher. I like both of these guys and this is going to be a war on the feet. I really do like Fisher, but Guillard is just incredible. He's definitely improving from every fight, and he's training with Team Punishment, so he's going to a force.

The final contenders match: I see this as Penn v Guillard, and I think that this is going to be a war. Both of them have great striking skills. Penn probably has the best chin in the lightweight division and Guillard definitely has the most power. (both of these are besides Sherk) I have no clue who would win this, but it's be worth watching, even as a main event.
Worth watching? yes. Suspenseful...hardly. Penn would walk throught eh LW division. He'd make Melvin Guillard look like some chumpp reality tv fighter...

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn
