I love the way this division is shaping up.
I have to say that I'm a bit suprised that they're giving Sherk a title shot at 155 when he hasn't really faced someone at that weight class. Yes he beat Nick Diaz, however, he still has to cut another 15lbs before he can compete at 155. I'm curious to see whether or not he can do this without killing himself. He's HUGE for 170 due to his muscle mass. Cutting to 155 could be a challenge for him. Then its a question of whether he can hang with these super fast guys.
I'm not doubting him, I'm just saying that he should have at least one match at 155 before they put him right at the top of the food chain.
This division will be extremely deep in talent
BJ Penn (should he decide he wants to be serious)
Joe Stevenson (same comment as Penn)
Josh Neer (should he decide to drop)
Melvin Guilard (he is definitely the future of this division)
Some of the guys I would LOVE to see them bring in:
Faber (he is a bad man and could own this division)
I really hope UFC stays serious about this. They would be stupid not to.
