"Stylistically, I think we're a lot the same. Obviously, physically, we look a lot the same. I see a lot of same attributes in myself that he has as well. To be honest with you, I just don't think he's seasoned enough yet. We're talking about a guy with 13 fights who hasn't fought an A-level fighter yet, versus a guy who's got 40 fights who's been fighting A-level fighters for six years. So there's a lot of experience coming into this that I have."

-- Former lightweight champion Sean Sherk talks to about his upcoming clash with Tyson Griffin at UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote" at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., on October 25. He feels that with a win over the X-Treme Couture standout -- who has won five of six fights inside the Octagon and four straight -- will position him near the top of 155-pound title contenders once again. Sherk and Griffin do have strong wrestling backgrounds and very similar styles. Both have also experienced droughts in terms of finishing their opponents despite winning performances (Sherk 2005 and Griffin 2006), meaning we could very well see another decision on Saturday night if current trends continue.
