UFC 119 Preview: Sean Sherk Talks Evan Dunham and Aims for the UFC Lightweight Title

"I want to make a real legitimate run for another lightweight title and I have to be healthy to do that. I feel better now than I have in a real long time."

"I think Evan (Dunham) is tough, he's three dimensional. He's got some striking, some good wrestling and a black belt in jiu-jitsu. He's three dimensional. I think he's going to be a tough opponent; he's not going to lay down for me. He wants the win just as bad as I do."

"Stylistically, it depends on how he wants to fight me. He can press the pace and come at me or he can try to avoid me. ... I have several game plans. You have to have a plan A, plan B and plan C and change it up during the fight."

"I think this fight has the potential to be a good fight, hopefully we'll get some fireworks."
