Its hard to believe some people just dont appreciate great fighters.
Sherk is a monster & Kenny just has tons of potental. Both fighters stuck to there strength's and gave it there all. Looking forward to seeing these guys lock up again.

Who would be considerd the next in line to fight Sherk.??

Doesnt matter who they throw at Sherk. He will destroy them. The guys a freak of nature to be able to have that much cardio with that much muscle at 155lbs.

If you really watched the fight if you took away that one cut on the Sharks head it was a one sided pounding.

I don't think anyone can beat him right now but I would like to see Hermes Franca fight him. There is no way that he would get a shot anytime soon, at least I don't think he deserves one yet, but I think his ground game is very good. Maybe by some act of god he can submit sherk but I really doubt it.

Well considering he fights at 175, he will destroy every LW.
I mean, he makes weight of course, but that boy CUTS

I KNOW! wow! Im 5"7 210lbs (used to compete in bodybuilding). I competed at 158lbs. Believe when I tell you its F'n hard to cut that much weight.

I would like to know what he is at before he cuts his weight. I cant see him going far beyond 175 to tell you the truth. And that in its self would take alot of discpline.

Does anyone know his start wieght?

I don't think it's like bodybuilding where you get huge and then rip down. Plus Sherk's a freakish mesomorph to start with so I'm guessing he walks around at something like 160lbs. Genetically I thikn he's similar to dexter Jackson, he only cuts for 4-6 weeks before a show.

Yeah start weight meaning his wieght going into first day of training.

185 going to 155 is still a big ass cut. And around what i was thinking he would have to be to still be able to have energy to fight. If you ever cut weight like a fighter/ bodybuilder, you know that in the last half of cutting wieght you are sucking serious ass in the energy department. That boy has a genetic gift or some seriously good cutting diet!

No, he really cuts down from 170 - 175.

He was talking about it when he talked about his "test" cuts, he cut twice down to make weight before he even had to weight in, just so he knew he could do it and it wouldn't be so hard on him.

Cutting 20lbs is rough, but doable

I thought it said 180, i might be wrong, but he was fighting in WW, so he was a big boy.... and his cardio looked awesome, he didn't even really seem tired after 5 rounds.

No way does Guillard deserve a shot yet...

I'd put Guillard against somebody like Tyson Griffin or Sam Stout.
Yeah but I can see it happening. Silva didn't deserve a title shot either after 1 ufc bout. So Guillard may get one.

omm..sean sherk is a freak of nature. he only lost like 2 fights and 1 draw and he fought in the 170 division. its insane that he fights in the LW division. Kenny florian could probably take on any other LW and stand a decent chance, he took a shit load of punishment. NO ONE can stop sherks takedowns. I dont even think bj penn would be able to. that wousd be a sick fight though with BJs incredible JIUjitsu and incredible takedown D.

Guillard does not have the accomplishments outside the UFC that Anderson had. I dont think even Melvin should want the title shot yet. If he gets it now and loses he'd have to wait a long time to get another one. As opposed to waiting a little while until he's ready.

melvin is a beast, but i dont think hes ready, it would be smart to get fights under his belt, and let sherk fight a lil more, see what throws him off the most, and push a lot in that division....i would like to see bj vs sherk....flexibility out the ass.....would be good, but i think bj would get tossed around
