Default UFC 108 - Sherk on the Undercard?

Wow, he's really being demoted! He's fighting a nobody, but wow, that's a surprise!

I love Sherk, hope he goes back to his aggressive wrestling rather than trying all this stand-up crap he tried with Penn and Edgar.

Well.. he has lost a few.. but Undercard????? he has a better fan base than that...

But I agree, he needs to stay with what brought him to the dance.. always improve on everything.. but he is a serious threat with wrestling..

That's kinda what I thought. He's only lost 2 fights in a row, 1 of them being to Penn and then Edgar who's a real up-and-comer (although it didn't seem Sherk put forth 100% effort for that fight IMO). Joe Stevenson lost 3 in a row and he was still on the main card.

Cause when Joe loses... he REALLY loses.. Makes the other guys look good

Joe is a good fighter though.. not meaning to bash him that much...but that BJ fight was a mess..

True, but he still fought his arse off. stevenson gained respect from me after that spectacle. The best part is watching the end when penn locks in the rear naked and stevenson's head is spurting blood like a real horror show.

diego didnt look that good against him but i agree he made penn look unstoppable and made Kenny look like the clear cut number one contender after there fights.

These are the two reasons he is now on the undercard. I agree he has looked different since he got caught.

Also the UFC is afraid he will go back to his wrestling which means a 15 min drink / bathroom / food / what the hell else is on break if they put him on the main card.
