I voted Sherk. He's never lost a fight at 155 and I don't expect him to for a long time.

KenFlo is toast.

Sherk is to strong for Gomi, he has great wrestling skills and exellent submission defense. Gomi would never get his game on in that fight. Sherk to win

Strikes would be the only way that Gomi could end this fight. [/url]
i agree with him there sherk is simply too big for gomi.. i think stevenson is going to give sherk some problems at lw in ufc... stevenson is also a big 155er and has excellent submissions and pretty good wrestling as well i think he would catch sherk it would be a good fight though

I think that Stevenson is lacking in the brute strength and/or striking skills necessary to take Sean Sherk. Remember, Sherk's only been overpowered once, and that was Matt Hughes. I don't think that Stevenson, even though he's a great fighter, can grapple with the Shark.

I think that the only fighter who even has a shot at Sherk is KenFlo, and I think Dana White knows it too. Sherk is back in the Lighweight division, so he may slip up in his training, and KenFlo is a good enough striker and submission fighter to take advantage of that, plus he's very comfortable working from his back. Still, my money's on Sherk.

IronMan do you think That Pulvers could beat Sherk?
ANd weren't all of Kenny's wins basically over chumps that just could strike?
and I have never seen gomi fight but sherk for sure.

I think that Jens is capable of taking advantage of Sherk's mistakes, but I don't think he has the ground skills to deal with Sherk. KenFlo is a better ground fighter then Pulver, so I expect him to last a little bit longer against the groundnpound.

I posted Gomi's highlight reel because alot of people haven't seen him fight. I still think Sherk will be the undisputed lightweight champion in any organization.

If Kenny is the only one that can really last with Sherk then Sherk will be the champ for a long long time.
And isn't jens pulver a striker? then sherk would beat him easily on the ground.
