    I was pretty impressed with the muscle shark this past event. Even though he went to another decision he was not a blanket nor boring. His stand up looked good. he was beating Tyson to the punch 90% of the time. I would love to see him get another crack at BJ Penn once BJ losses to GSP.

    BJ would kill him again

    He should stay in the midget division and fight other short stubby fighters

    I too would love to watch BJ kick the shit out of him again.

    Sherk looked exactly like Sherk, except when this person was able to keep the fight on their feet Sherk wasnt at a drastic reach disadvantage.

    But Tyson wasn't able to keep it standing. Sherk took him down at will.

    word. sherks standup is alot better than people give him credit for. he's just usually at such a huge reach disadvantage it doesn't show

    Him vs Frankie Edgar could possible be one of the most entertaining matches ever.

    Edgar would be on his back the entire fight, Sherk is WAY bigger than him.

    Sherk's standup is easily nullified by reach... But he is a good striker if he's matched up evenly reach-wise.

    I thought it was a great fight personally.

    Always liked Sherk when he pushed it.

    I don't think it would be that bad.:dunno:

    Both short stocky dudes, fast paced... I don't see Sherk just smashing him easily.

    Faber barely cuts anything at all to make 145. Sherk cuts a ton to make 155. It would look like a midget version of Lesnar vs Herring.

    I thought it was a great fight. I was glad Sherk won, as I have always kind of had it out for Griffen since the Guida fight because I really felt Guida won that fight

    Oh I didn't know Faber doesn't cut much. Shit how short is he? Sherk is 5'6" right? I guess he got his nickname is for a reason.

    .

    I cant remember where he cuts from, but it was disturbing how much he cuts to get to 155.
