“I’m fighting January 2 against Rafaello Oliveira … I haven’t studied him yet, but I know he has fought my training partner Nick Lentz in Dallas. Lentz beat him, and he’s been able to give me some good advice on him.”
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,
“To be honest with you, I’m not really interested in fighting him again. I’d rather fight the big guns. I’d love to fight B.J., Kenny, or Diego. Somebody like that.”
