    Yep. Going into both events for me only Hughes/Penn was in the same class as the 3 OWGP matches, Kharitonov vs. Aleks, and Overeem vs. Arona. Hopefully, with the new found wealth of talent in the LW division, we should see more name fighters squaring off every event.

    I will hold off on Sherk until I see how he handles dropping from 170 to 155. Griffin is not a small LW either and his striking is much better than Sherk's.

    Interesting Penn interview from yesterday. He says he injured his ribs at the end of the 2nd and this was the reason for his immobility and problems in the 3rd.

    I seriously doubt his striking is much better than Sherk's. That's one part of Sherk's game that always gets underrated. Sherk out-boxed Nick Diaz, which is far from easy.

  5. Sherk does have pretty decent striking. He's so compact and keeps his hands up religiously so it's tough to hurt him. I think Sherk is kind of boring, but I don't see anyone stopping him at 155. Maybe Kenny 'Ginsu' Florian will get 'lucky' and slice him a la Leben.

    By the looks of the reactions. I think he was just trying to pull his leg. Cause when all of Hughes' posse got all upset at the comments, GSP appeared to be apologetic.

    But on the boxing note, so it isnt just me that thinks his punching looks mediocre?

    It is not only you; most think that Hughes standup is not very good. He uses strikes as a liason to takedowns.

  8. I don't necessarily think his striking is good, but I thought that it looked better in this fight than I remembered it being in the past.
