Though it has still yet to be confirmed as Montreal the UFC 84 event is shaping up to be a great one. Along with GSP vs. Serra there is Thiago Alves vs Karo Parisyan and also there are rumors that both Shogun Rua and Sean Sherk will make their return to UFC on that card. If Sherk were to fight than I would hope it woul be against Penn and that would make it 2 title fights on the night. There are also a few Canadian MMA stars scheduled to fight which is a smart move by UFC.
The rumored card is this right now.
Date: April 19
Location: Montreal, Canada
Venue: Bell Centre
Champ Matt Serra vs. Georges St. Pierre (title-unification bout)
Thiago Alves vs. Karo Parisyan
Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. TBA
Sean Sherk vs. TBA
Jason MacDonald vs. TBA
Jonathan Goulet vs. TBA
Damn, that's a fine lookin card already.
And I want to say this. UFC has never seen fans like the ones in Montreal. If they have this event they will end up returning at least once every year. The fans in Montreal are actually crazy and they love their wrestling/mma. I've been to a WWE PPV at the Bell Centre and that was wild, I can only imagine what's going to happen with a top-notch MMA event.
I would also like to say. I WILL be in attendance at this event. I'm doing everything in my power to get tickets and I even have some connections that these tickets might be pretty good. Going to a UFC event live is definately something i've always wanted to do and I will make my dream come true.
And it only get's better. According to rumors from thefightnetwork.com Rich Franklin might fight Travis Lutter on the April Card in Montreal. And Patrick Cote may fight too.
Also, I don't know if you guys saw this but...
Former PRIDE heavyweight champion and current M-1 Global fighter Fedor Emelianenko will meet with estranged UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture on Thursday — likely to discuss the bout that the two fighters have long desired.
I hate B.J. Penn but I admit he is really good, Sherk could take him though IMO
nah i disagree. the thing about BJ Penn is he rushes you from the beginning. For everyone else if you rush, it's easy for you to lose your balance, but that's Penn's strength to be able to rush you yet at the same time keep himself upright.
I honestly don't know what sherk would do. Bring BJ Penn to the ground? that's where BJ is strongest.
