Seeing how this guy is undefeated, and beat Tyson. I must admit beating griffin is saying a lot griffin has many quality wins over great fighers. I think there fight was close, but I did have edgar winning it.

So here is the questions that I ask....

Do you see edgar as a future contender or champion at 155?

I'm impressed with edgar, but he may have trouble with a guy like sherk. I think if he manages to get some great TD defense, and strike with sherk he may have a chance.

I don't think any LW fighter would be in for a easy fight with sherk though.

I definitely think that Edgar is one to watch... But I agree, its Sherk, and then everyone else...

BJ or someone like Shinya Aoki are the only people I see beating Sherk. Someone with really good JJ and rubber guard control I think is going to be Sherk's cryptonite... I don't see frankie having an "answer" to sherk's strength and wrestling. (man I'm clever )

I don't think Aoki's rubber guard will help when a guy like sherk passes so easily. You saw in the franca fight, as soon as he took him down he got into side control or half-guard right away. His passes are one of his strengths.

I think Edgar should fight Stevenson , if he gets by Pellegrino, and the winner should get the title shot with the winner of BJ/Sherk. I agreee about Aoki and Penn having the best shot at defeting Sherk, but I think I think Stevenson would have finished Sherk if he had the situation Franca did. If Stevenson were to catch Sherk with a new to the chin and then get a guillotine in full guard, I think he is strong enough to choke him out. I bet Sherk will be a little more careful with his shot from now on.
