5oz. of Pain conducted an interview with current UFC Lightweight Champion Sean Sherk, here is a recap of that interview:
Eric Shapiro: How do you feel about B.J. being at 155 lbs. now instead of 170 lbs. as a welterweight? Do you think he will lose some power dropping the weight?
Sean Sherk: I always thought that he was a better 155 pounder than he was at 170 I think hes got better cardio, he’s more agile, quicker, and I think he’s a better fighter at 155. I always said that about him.
Eric Shapiro: Assuming you face and defeat B.J. Penn, who’s left for Sean Sherk to face?
Sean Sherk: Well the weight class is stacked and there’s guys coming out of the wood work all the time. Joe Stevenson’s been on a winning streak, Frankie Edgar’s been winning some fights, (Kenny) Florian’s been winning a couple fights in a row…
Eric Shapiro: Would you be content with fighting Kenny Florian again?
Sean Sherk: Why not? I beat him last time. I don’t care. I’ll fight whoever they put in front of me.
Eric Shapiro: So you’re not a real picker-chooser when it comes to your opponents?
Sean Sherk: You know what, when I retire from this sport I want to know that I fought the best of the best I don’t want a question mark at the end of my career saying “Did I fight the best guys out there? Was I the best fighter?” If you want to be the best you’ve got to beat the best so put the best in front me and I’ll fight ‘em.
