"This was a great fight and a great opportunity for me to come out and show some stuff that people haven't seen before. I want to show everyone that I'm growing as a fighter and show everyone that I'm three dimensional. I though I did that tonight. And hopefully I get to fight the winner of Joe [Stevenson] and Kenny [Florian] next. That's my goal."

At the ripe old age of 35, former lightweight champion Sean Sherk talks after defeating Tyson Griffin via unanimous decision at UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote" last night about the improvements he has made to his all around mixed martial arts game. Primarily known for his overwhelming wrestling, Sherk demonstrated a much improved striking attack and was not as one dimensional, earning him and Griffin the "Fight of the Night." It was a match up that many fans predicted going in would be dull because of the wrestling backgrounds of both fighters. That simply was not the case.
