UFC Quick Quote: Evan Dunham still sees himself as the underdog against Sean Sherk

Sherk-fake_medium

"I still see myself as the underdog in this fight. If you look at the guys that Sherk has lost to, it's an incredible list: they are all champions, or former champions … I think he's just as dangerous as he's always been. With that being said, I've been training my ass off, and I'm not looking past him at all. And I like being the underdog, so that's why I mentally put myself there. It's easier for me to make that fight uphill, when I'm thinking one minute, 'I'm going to go right through this guy,' which is something hard to do with a guy like Sherk. I'm just concentrating on doing what I need to do and getting through him, and I'm not taking him lightly, whatsoever."

Undefeated UFC lightweight prospect (and -240 favorite) Evan Dunham tells MMA Weekly that he refuses to take "The Muscle Shark" lightly, despite the former champion's struggles both in and out of the Octagon. Is this the end for one of yesteryear's most dominant fighters? Or will Sherk prove to the hungry up-and-comer that he's still got a few tricks up his sleeve?
