UFC News: Sherk vs. Griffin at UFC 90

MMAweekly had been reporting that Sean Sherk will take on Tyson Griffin at UFC 90 on October 25.  This lightweight fight would have huge implications in the divison.  Tyson Griffin, the Xtreme Couture trained fighter is coming of an impressive win over Marcus Aurelio.  Sean Sherk of course is coming off of a loss at UFC 84 to B.J. Penn and is looking to climb back into title contention.  Here is what Sherk had to say…

I’ve been real careful with who I’m going to fight. I don’t want to fight up-and-coming guys. You start fighting up-and-coming guys and you have to fight more guys to make your way up to the top. I want to fight the best of the best, and that’s what I’m doing with this upcoming fight.

I honestly this this is a bad match up for Tyson Griffin.  Tyson has been impressive lately, but Sherk is a tough opponent.  UFC 90 looks to have a decent card, but is still lacking one more big name fight.  It will be headlined witha  middleweight title fight between the best pound for pound fighter in the world, Anderson Silva vs. Patrick Cote.  Also, the card will feature a welterweight clash between Diego Sanchez and Thiago Alves, most likely to determine the number one contender for the welterweight belt.  Recently, two other lightweight matches had been announced: Spencer Fisher vs. Melvin Guillard and Hermes Franca vs. Gleison Tibau.  Also, Fabricio Werdum will try to lock up a title shot with one more win at UFC 90.
