Sherk accumulated an impressive 17-0-1 record before signing with the UFC in 2001. Sherk began his UFC career against Tiki Ghosen at UFC 30 (2001). After going an astounding 22-0-1 Sherk recorded his first loss to Matt Hughs. After losing his first fight, Sherk was more determined than ever and went on a remarkable 12 fight winning streak. In 2006, Sean Sherk became the UFC Lightweight World Champion after winning all five rounds and defeating Kenny Florian via unanimous decision.
