No love lost between these two. I’m anticipating a very brutal fight. It’s gonna come down to who can hold their own on the ground because you can bet Sean Sherk isn’t going to be too eager to trade shots with BJ. Ground & pound against Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for the lightweight championship. It’s been a long time coming for BJ Penn, who is well deserving of a title shot. Sherk would also be a dominant champion. My picks are bolded.
Sean Sherk vs. BJ Penn
Wanderlei Silva vs. Keith Jardine
Wilson Gouveia vs. Goran Reljic
Tito Ortiz vs. Lyoto Machida
Thiago Silva vs. Antonio Mendes
