BJ vs Sherk

Apparently some people think that Sherk would destory BJ in a title fight. More than one person said that Sherk was too big for BJ to handle which dosent have much logic to it considering BJ beat Hughes a guy whos bigger than Sherk and also beat Sherk. I honestly think the belt is BJ's as long as he's willing to go down to 155lbs. I like Sherk but if this fight happens I honestly dont see Sherk winning.

Discuss.

i don't see sherk taking bj. bj's striking is much better...and i'd give hime the advantage on the ground as well. the only area where sherk has the advantage is cardio...i would think cutting down to 155 would involve SOME CARDIO...so penn should improve there as well.

still, strength and endurance go to sherk so each fighter has their pros & cons. in the end...you just can't truely prepare yourself for bj due to his ridiculous ground skills and flexibility...bj by submission.

I second the motion.

Not a chance in hell Sherk would win, he is a cheaper version of Matt Hughes, he will do well at 155 just because he will be so much stronger than the other LW's, but Bj would work him over.

damn, no love for Sherk here....I take nothing away from BJ, hes an amazing fighter, but sherk is an absolute beast at LW. I can actually see this fight going either way, hes prob the only guy who would be able to beat Sherk for the title though...I dont see any other LW's matching his strength

We have love for Sherk, I take nothing away from him. But he wouldn't be able to take Bj down, and his standup game would get picked apart
