According to Joe Silvia the man who arranges most the fights for the UFC; UFC 64 on October 14th will have Sean Sherk Vs Kenny Florian and Rich Franklin vs Andersson Silvia.


GG Mr Silvia and Mr Kenflo.


That should be a SICK PPV if they can put another good undercard on it.

Middleweight is actually got alot of good fighters in it.

Just because Ace handed The Crow his ass doesn't mean he can do it again.

And ya Silvia's fight is way to freakin soon, swick in my opinion deserves it more. But i guess he's fighten the crow and if he wins im sure the winner will get a title shot.

thing is, Ace will own just about everyone they put in front of him right now, hes at the top of his game and Silva will just be another victim. Hendo would be sick opponent or even Kang id like to see, but thats just wishful thinking :(

I still won't count out nate the great just yet...i think if there is someone in that weight division in the ufc that has a chance, it's him. Someone touched on it earlier as far as bringing a pride fighter over to fight ace. If I could pick Rich Franklin's next opponent, no matter the organization, it would have to be Dan Henderson from Pride. When the man's on a roll, he's is almost unstoppable. Rich has nice hands, but Dan i think has quicker if not stonger ones. It'd be an unbelievable fight.

Silva doesn't deserve a title shot, neither does Swick or Loiseau. Nate Marquardt does more than both of them. Why hasn't he gotten anything? He's never going to get a title shot. First Silva whos only faught once to get to fight for the title and Swick whos only beaten Riggs and Loiseau whos already lost to Franklin badly. Terrible just terrible. I say Silva and Marquardt fight for the number one contender. Then if Silva wins he gets rights to fight Franklin. Swick and Loiseau don't deserve title shots yet. Terrible, just terrible.

And no Sherk is not fighting Florian, Florian is refusing to fight Sherk for unknown reasons.

At UFC 64 according to a mixed martial arts results sight it says Sylvia is fighting Monson, Franklin is fighting someone to be named, and BJ Penn is fighting someone to be named as well (maybe Jens Pulver in a rematch).

you guys make what you can out of this.....its from SS's officially website

Will we see Florian versus Sherk for the lightweight title?

By Sean McClure
www.maxfighting.com
Friday, August 4, 2006

The two top contenders for the lightweight title are Kenny Florian and Sean Sherk. Pretty straightforward stuff there. The UFC makes the match and bam! we have a new lightweight champion. Again, pretty straightforward stuff. Should be easy as one, two, three and money in the bank for Zuffa the way it looks on paper. Check the upcoming pay per views and look for this fight. Do you see it? I would bet “no”.

Sean Sherk became the number one contender as soon as he dropped down in weight from 170 to 155. Kenny Florian became the other top contender by defeating Sam Stout at the Ultimate Fighter season 3 finale. Why hasn’t this fight happened you may ask? It’s simple…timing is everything.

When Kenny Florian was approached about his fight with Sean Sherk for the vacant lightweight title, he answered an emphatic “yes”. The UFC hashed out the proposed date and it looked like the fight was all set to jump off. Then rumors started surfacing about Kenny Florian ducking the fight with Sherk and refusing to gear up to fight. The internet forums lit up with accusations and speculations. Sherk posted the following on his website:

“I really wanted to fight on the UFC 62 card as planned. I told Joe Silva I will fight 155 or 170 for a title or a non-title fight but they were unable to find an opponent. It looks like I’ll be fighting in October now, I just took 2 weeks off training and I’m ready to get back after it now.

I have one goal in mind, to kick the *expletive deleted* out of Florian!!”

Sean Sherk

This sparked further speculation by fans and the internet forums again lit up with accusations of cowardice aimed at Florian. Kenny responded on his website with the following statement:

“I would absolutely fight Sean Sherk for the Lightweight Division Title. The UFC said I was fighting Sherk in October or November, and I accepted. Then, all of a sudden, they pushed for the August show. However, I just got off the Stout fight and I’m leaving for Brazil for two weeks. Realistically, I need more than 3 weeks to prepare for that fight. Sherk’s been on the sidelines training for a fight for several months.”

Kenny Florian

If you read Kenny’s statement and then examine Sherk’s, you would have to guess that they would face off on the UFC 64 card, where Rich Franklin will take on Anderson Silva on October 14. There is definitely some bad blood starting to show here and that is good business for the UFC and that should make for a more interesting and marketable fight. MaXfighting will keep you up to date on all of the developments of this fight as they become available.

Florian is supposedly injured. He may fight sherk he may not. I read a post earlier that had a direct qoute about it. Something about an injury but i'm not sure.
