â€œIâ€™m fighting January 2 against Rafaello Oliveira … I havenâ€™t studied him yet, but I know he has fought my training partner Nick Lentz in Dallas. Lentz beat him, and heâ€™s been able to give me some good advice on him.â€
Oliveira (9-2) is a virtual unknown, losing his UFC debut to Nick Lentz at UFC 103.
Something else interesting, Sherk (33-4-1) doesn’t want a rematch with Frankie Edgar,
â€œTo be honest with you, Iâ€™m not really interested in fighting him again. Iâ€™d rather fight the big guns. Iâ€™d love to fight B.J., Kenny, or Diego. Somebody like that.â€
