Even though Sean Sherk took a fifteen minute pounding at the hands B.J. Penn at UFC 84, he already has a certain date circled on the calendar for his return to the cage.
I want to fight in Minnesota (August 9),” said Sherk.
August 8th represents the UFC’s first trip to Sherk’s home state of Minnesota for UFC 87. With a loaded card already set, it would seem difficult to find a spot for Sherk. However, the UFC has never been shy about putting hometown fighters on the card when the show is local.
And taking a look at the rumored line-up, there is an intriguing opponent available. Frankie Edgar is scheduled to appear on the show. Currently, his opponent is still the unpredictable TBA. Wouldn’t an Edgar vs. Sherk matchup be a very interesting addition?
