I really like the idea of a mini tournament. Hell they could do it as a Spike TV special. Kind of like the Bushido special on FSN.
It's not lil devil it's lil evil and Sherk is a fuggin stud! He will own that division for as long as he wants. I guarantee it.

If dreams came true:
Pulver vs. Sherk for the belt
Penn vs. Belt Holder for 1st defence
Looks good to me. Pulver never lost his belt so he should get the first shot for sure in my opinion and Sherk would be the perfect opponent. This would be a great fight.
This is tough to set up a championship fight for an Interm Belt with no tourny, so many fighters right now can say they deserve a shot. Hominick, Florian, Steveinson, Franca, Gullibard(sp?) and Fisher are all coming off wins. Is it really fair to just put Sherk into the title match without him fighting a single fight at LW? It is obivouis he is a great fighter, but he should have to at least fight a match at LW before a title shot. Pulver is probably the only with a legit auto title match, seeing as how he was the last and only LW in the UFC.
I would like to see a mini tourny, Hominick vs. Sherk, Pulver vs. Florian, winners fight for the title. But that wont happen, what will happen is Sherk vs. Florian.
Short notice for Fisher
Spencer fisher only took the fight with 2 days notice and dropped 20 lbs within those 2 days to make weight. Quite a performance with all that in mind.

True. He had been fighting at WW and cut alot of weight on short notice. You could tell he was gassed early in the fight.
Oh and by the way, anyone who thinks K-Flo has a chance is retarded. Sherk will own him.

Sherk is the man, I have finally seen fights with him near his actual weight and not fighting guys much larger then himself, I think he will win the title and keep it for a long time.

Shrek and lildevil. That's priceless!
Not to mention that was at 170 and now he's at 155. He will be dominant.
