I take great honor in announcing that I will be fighting Sean Sherk for the Lightweight World Championship at UFC 64 on October 14th at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas. I just started my formal training for the fight.
Sean Sherk comes into the fight with a 29-2-1 record. His last fight was at UFC 59, where he won by unanimous decision over Nick Diaz. Sherk is a very strong wrestler. But it takes more than wrestling to be a mixed martial arts champion. In this fight, I am the multi-dimensional fighter. I will be at the top of my game. He will be attacked in several different ways. His weaknesses will be found and exploited.
I know that I come into the fight as the underdog. Sherk has certainly amassed an impressive record. He’s typically ranked in the top 5 at 170lbs. So supposedly, he must be unbeatable at 155lbs. This will be Sherk's 2nd attempt at a UFC World title, he will lose again.
Stay with the Flo,
Kenny "KenFlo" Florian
