Sean Sherk And Evan Dunham Possible For UFC 119

The news comes via MMA Junkie-

Sources close to the situation say that both Sean Sherk and Evan Dunham have conditionally agreed to terms for a fight at UFC 119. Former lightweight champ Sean Sherk will look to rebound off of his disappointing performance vs Frankie Edgar at UFC 98. Hoping to further derail the former champ will be Dunham, who's star is rising quicker than our national deficit. Dunham is coming off a very impressive decision victory at UFC 115 over his former training partner, Tyson Griffin. Sherk has been plagued by the injury bug lately, pulling out of fights against Jim Miller at UFC 108, and Clay Guida for Versus 1 back in March.

Dunham absolutely dominated Griffin on the mat, and was able to maintain back control throughout most of the match. This looks like a pretty bad match up for Sherk, who will once again be fighting someone with much more reach. Since Dunham just beat what many consider to a younger, more evolved version of Sherk, I'm having a hard time imagining how he doesn't improve on his undefeated 11-0 record.  We might be looking at the end for the oft injured Sean Sherk, who, at 36, seems to be winding down his very impressive career.  After all, the man has never lost to anyone who wasn't a UFC champion.
