Shogun and Sherk could fight on April’s UFC card in Montreal

Not a lot of official information has been released about the UFC’s upcoming card in Montreal on April 19, but if some of the rumors and reports floating around become true, Canadian fans attending the show live could be treated to a strong show.

The UFC has not formally announced it, but all indications is that the show’s main event will consist of a welterweight title match between Matt Serra and Georges St. Pierre.

Additionally, The Fight Network reported on Wednesday that Rich Franklin and Travis Lutter could meet in a middleweight match.

Now comes words that both Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Sean Sherk could be booked for the show as well.

GracieMag.com quotes Rua as saying the following:

“I’m already preparing for my return, I’ll fight on April 19th. Ninja and Dida go back in March. I’m injury free and with none of the pains in my knee that bothered me so, I’ll devote my entire day to fighting and I’ll be 100%. I’ll do my best to give back to my fans.”

    I bet his agent tests him a day before the bout to make sure nothing is going on. But if he does test + again I really hope Dana cuts him. Everything I read about the CSAC and NSAC makes me have that much less faith in them but two failed tests in a row…I dunno.

    I wouldn’t bank on seeing Serra and GSP. If Serra’s back injury is as reported, he could reinjure himself in practice on any given day.
