    after seeing kermit cintron brutally KO Walter Matthysse last week im really intrigued about seeing what else he is capable of.

    hmm interesting...shrek is MAD ground game tho...i doubt he'll beat shrek on the ground but standing up yes he prob would.

    I think Kermit pulls down too much boxing to bother with this. I don't know why he is hell bent on fighting in MMA.

    forget, sherk. i'd love to see him square off against Gomi. gomi is a strike first fighter and has shown that his ground game isnt the best out there.

    i.e. submissions by aurelio and diaz

    massive popularity boost. it would bring him out of the shadows from cotto, floyd, and all those other aging welterweights.

    The welterweights are stacked, but if he wants to make a name for himself he can beat Cotto, Williams, Margarito, or Mosley.

    The bottom line is that Cintron isn't a big enough name and isn't making enough noise for the UFC to even take this whole thing seriously.

    Floyd didn't challenge anyone. He just was talking out his ass about how MMA fighters were boxers who couldn't cut it.

    Dana stepped up the plate and said Sherk would kill Floyd and that he would try to make the fight financially fesible for Floyd, then Din won his latest match and kinda called out the boxing guys.

    I seriously doubt this will ever happen especially since Sherk is not suspended for the next year. They can't send Din to fight one of these guys because his name isn't big enough and in the boxer's eyes it wouldn't prove anything unless they beat the best.

    Sherk would kill this dude. He would maul him worse than he did Hermes.

    and no one challenged Din. He accepted a fight no one offered him.

    that's true, but unlike Floyd they aren't going to give Kermit an instant title shot anyways so a fight with Din makes sense
