Sean Sherk Wants Fight With Royce Gracie In Bellator

1

Former UFC Lightweight champion Sean Sherk (36-4-1) is making headlines again after being out of the fight game since 2010. He officially announced his retirement in 2013 but is now having second thoughts and wants another chance to step inside the cage. He wants to fight a specific opponent and went on his personal Facebook to share his thoughts.

“I’ve turned my focus elsewhere setting goals and chasing them but it doesn’t have the same feel, ” Sherk wrote on Facebook. My heart is still with mixed martial arts, if given the opportunity to step in the cage one more time against Royce Gracie I’m going to take it.”

Royce Gracie is coming off of a 1st round TKO victory over Ken Shamrock at Bellator 149. The fight over Shamrock was his first bout in nine years. Bellator has been known to make interesting fights, and a Sherk vs. Gracie fight seems feasible.

Furthermore, Sherk told Sherdog that he has no desire fighting in the UFC.

“I don’t really have any interest in fighting in the UFC. I think there’s a lot more opportunity outside of the UFC organization at this point in time,” Sherk told Sherdog. “I don’t want to be told who I’m going to be sponsored by and make little to no money.”

Sherk was of course referring to the UFC-Reebok sponsorship deal. So fans, what do you think? Could this be a fight people would want to see?
