Clay Guida wants a fight with Sean Sherk

Coming off his decision victory over Nate Diaz at UFC 94, Clay Guida is looking forward to getting back into the Octagon. He already knows the guy he would like to fight next. Guida hopes his next opponent is former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk.

“Sherk is a monster,” Guida said. “Let’s see if he can stop my takedowns.”

Since losing the lightweight title to B.J. Penn, Sherk rebounded with a victory over Tyson Griffin. Sherk is next slated to square off with Frankie Edgar at UFC 98 on May 23.

A win over Sherk would certainly help Guida move up the UFC lightweight rankings. Even though Sherk had his share of problems outside of the Octagon, Guida is still a fan of the former champ.

“Sean’s always someone that I’ve looked up to in his performances,” Guida said. “What happens out of the cage is his business.”

For Guida to get the fight with Sherk, he would likely have to win one more match-up. If both Sherk and Guida are successful in their next matches, a fight between the two skilled wrestlers is very possible.

Whether or not you've been paying attention, Dennis Bermudez has won six straight fights. His most recent victory, a one-sided mauling of Jimy Hettes, finally inched Bermudez's name into the UFC's official top-15, but only barely. He used to reside at No. 11, though on Monday the man with the division's best non-title winning streak got bumped down to No. 12, another causality of the rise of the Irish. The good thing, at least, is that Bermudez almost instantly has a chance to remind folks he ex more
