"What I do works and I'm not going to change it now. I don't think (Evan Dunham) is going to do anything in the cage that I haven't seen or had done to me before. I've literally fought the best of the best in this industry for a very long time. I've fought for world titles in two different weight classes. I don't see him beating me at any aspect of the game. My striking is faster, it's crisper. My wrestling is better, my jiu-jitsu is better. There’s a lot of hungry kids out there, I’m hungry too. I want it. I've been there already. I’ve' had that belt. I loved it. I loved being world champion. I want that again."
Former lightweight champion Sean Sherk (33-4-1) looks to begin his path back to the mountaintop against up-and-coming division prospect Evan Dunham at UFC 119 in Indianapolis. The oft-injured "Muscle Shark" has been criticized for abandoning his roots (wrestling) which was a big factor is his divisional dominance for so many years in favor of a new stand-up attack that favored him in a UFC 90 bout against Tyson Griffin but cost him in a battle of the mitts against Frankie Edgar at UFC 98. Will he be the old Sherk in Indy? Or just old?
