I thought the same thing but after thinking more IMO that would be a gimme fight for him, Gomi has more power but I think Sherk is a tad faster, either way Sherk would take him to the ground and IMO be able to tko or coast to a decision.

On the other hand that would be a fight that Id watch just because they are both legends and its one of the few times you get two guys like that together wile they are still relevant.

Off the top of my head fights I think are in one way or another logical are,

Rafael Dos Anjos, Evan Dunham rematch, Takanori Gomi, Melvin Guillard, Jim Miller, Charles Oliveira, BJ Penn (if he decided to stay at LW) and Thiago Tavares.

Think Soti will be fighting the Maynard V Edgar winner.

So I would say either Miller or Gomi interest me most.

Sotiropoulos would probably be a good fight.

Sherk remains a one dimensional fighter, and therefore highly predictable.

He just doesn't have the reach to become a top level striker, and his short limbs place him at a disadvantage when trying to sink in submissions.

That leaves his wrestling; unfortunately his takedowns are fairly predictable. The faster LW's are going to avoid them easily.

His strength, determination and cardio make him a formidable foe, but his lopsided loss to frankie leads me to believe that his days of contending have now passed.

Sean has had a tough time picking up W's since he tested positive a while ago.

I'd love to hear thoughts on how he's going to reinvent himself, but I don't see it happening, quite frankly.

Yeh, guys like Edgar and Penn are on a different level. He is the gatekeeper, nothing more, nothing less.

Nice. I've thought of that too.
But isn't Soti supposed to fight Lauzon?!
And i don't think he deserves to get a title shot if he wins his next fight. No way. Long absence, comeback and work your way up the ranks. That's how it should be imo.

This is a fight that would be great too see. Both great wrestlers and both can take a punch to deliver another one. This would be a amazing fight.

I'd say Miller or Gomi would make most sence.
Soti should be heading in a different direction imo. also I don't see sherk ever winning a title and i believe that both Penn and Edgar would crush him.
Guida and Florian would be wins for Sherk i believe, but for some reason im not interested in seeing them, don't know why.
