According to mmanews:
Michael Moody was on location this weekend for MMANews.com at the International Mixed Martial Arts Expo that took could place in Long Beach, CA.
Rumors were circulating around the Expo that a possible lightweight matchup between Sean “The Muscle Shark” Sherk (32-3-1) and Tyson Griffin (12-1) could happen later this year. Multiple sources stated that the fight will take place in the fall, most likely either UFC 90 which takes place in October or UFC 91 which will be in November.
On one hand I’m thinking this is a good matchup, but then on the other hand it has decision written ALL over it. However, it would go a long way in solidifying Tyson Griffin as the next #1 contender behind Huerta/Florian if he could pull off the win. I’m thinking this fight could take place at UFC 90 in Chicago, since Sherk couldn’t make the Minnesota card (UFC 87). Also, if BJ Penn moves up to welterweight in December as rumored, we could see the winner of Sherk/Griffin fight the winner of Florian/Huerta. Stay tuned to PRO MMA for more details on this possible match up.
