"I’m assuming they’re gonna maybe try to get me back in the title mix again right away, so they’ll maybe throw me a contender of some sort, and then try to get another shot at that belt real soon. I’m not real sure what B.J.’s plans are, but I think he wants to go back up to 70, and if that’s the case, it’s gonna vacate the belt, and hopefully I’ll get a shot at it soon. I think I’ll get another shot at with another win or two, probably."
Former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk still has his sights set on reclaiming the 155-pound title sometime soon. He missed the opportunity at UFC 84: "Ill Will," losing to reigning division kingpin BJ Penn via third round technical knockout. "The Muscle Shark" will likely return in August when the promotion hits his native Minnesota with UFC 87: "Seek and Destroy." There's no word on a possible opponent but it sounds as if it could be someone near the top of the division. Any suggestions?
