Well, so much for the era of Sherk as the dominant champ. If UFC wanted to gain some good pub for itself in the wake of this (and in the wake of the Benoit/Bonds controversy), they'd come down hard on Sherk and Franca even post-suspension. Sherk especially....he's the champ, for pete's sake. He even had that big episode of UFC Unleashed where he went on and on about how he's a fitness freak and how he takes such great care of his body. What a phony.
If I had to guess, I'd say it'll be BJ Penn vs. the winner of Stevenson/Pellegrino for the vacated title.
I agree with Paul. I watched it and I did enjoy watching it, but it felt like there was a little drama missing. Eastgate caught some incredible luck and you obviously need that if you're going to win, but some of his hits were unbelievable.
