EXCLUSIVE | Sean Sherk:
“I want to be known as one the best fighters in the world during my era,” said Sherk. “I’ve always showed up ready to fight and put on a great show.”
It is a fact when Sherk fought the fans would get an entertaining show. The fact that Sherk was also relevant force in two weight classes also says a lot about his talent and skill level. Some of his best fights were against the best the UFC has ever seen; Matt Hughes, Georges St. Pierre, and BJ Penn. All of those fights ended with losses, but entertaining fights none the less.
“I think I did make my mark, I fought the best of the best,” said Sherk. “I’ve fought for world titles in multiple weight classes.”
The legacy we leave behind is important, but probably more important to professional athletes. What they accomplish is how they are remembered. There have been countless number of professional athletes in MMA, but only a handful are revered by the fans. With only 9 members, the number of UFC Hall of Famers is an even smaller group. Sherk would love to have his name included in that short list.
“I think I did create myself a legacy as being one of the best in my era,” stated Sherk. “I’d like to be recognized as a UFC Hall of Famer.”
