Sherk wins by UD.

Hopefully sherk win in a dominate fashion that will hopefully give him a title shot or put him 1 fight away. I wanna see a rematch with him and BJ but this time sherk wont decide not to use his best skill his wrestling.

WAR Sherk

WAR Sherk





Agreed, I would love to Sherk back up in the title picture, he'll beat Frank, as I said in the previous post.

This is just about the easiest fight I've seen to call. Sherk wins and I really doubt there is any competition. Edgar is a great fighter but Sherk is twice as good as him in every aspect that he excels in.

This fight has decision written all over it no matter who wins. Maybe sherk will keep it standing again but I think the closer he gets to a title shot the more he'll utilize his superior wrestling again.

i love the fact that every other major fight card besides columbus looks good

Sherk by whatever. Stand up, GnP, UD, doesn't matter.

Sherk by domination, en route to a UD and a number one contender's shot

If Maynard could over power and out wreslte Edgar the way he did...theres no doubt, that Sherk will do the same.

Finally Sherk gets someone with the same reach advantage; even against Tyson Griffin there was a difference of an inch.

I won't discount Edgar completely because his performance against Tyson Griffin was outstanding. Both fighters had equal amounts success. Obviously Griffin's standup had improved since then, but so has Frank's.

Sherk is probably a marginally better wrestler, but his wrestling isn't on the level of Gray Maynard. He's not going to be able to hold Edgar down and grind out a decision. It will turn into a 3 round boxing match with bursts of wrestling.

If anyone gasses it will be Edgar. He has great cardio, but a 10 month layoff can do strange things. Edgar stays in the pocket and he's got a chin, but I expect Sherk's boxing to be a little more crisp and I see the constant pressure and combinations scoring a knockout.

Edgar could surprise though. He fights a lot taller than he is and throws a lot of nice clean straight punches down the middle. He could outpoint Sherk if he can keep on the outside and avoid the short left hook combinations Sherks leads with frequently.

Should be fight of the night contender!

Sherk should win this one pretty easily, he's better the Edgar in about every area, but I'll give Edgar the benefit of the doubt and say, Sherk UD.

I think Maynard vs Sherk would be a more appropriate matchup but this will be exciting too.

I think Sherk will try and box with Edgar at first and then do his thing with the wrasslin with a UD. Sherk might even be a better striker than Edgar and the quicker of the two imo, the reach could be the difference if they strike (if he has any reach over sherk).
