Sean Sherk Wants To Fight Royce Gracie

Former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk, recently took to his official Facebook account to express his desire to come out of retirement, and fight MMA legend Royce Gracie.

Sherk has not competed in an MMA fight since he won a controversial split decision over Evan Dunham, back at UFC 119 in 2010. He has a record of 36-4-1. Sherk became the UFC lightweight champion when he defeated Kenny Florian at UFC 64.

Royce Gracie fought this past weekend at Bellator 149, against long-time rival Ken Shamrock. Gracie ended up winning via first round TKO.

Would this be something Bellator MMA president Scott Coker be interested in? Only he can answer that. But it wouldn’t be shocking if Bellator wasn’t at least open to considering it.

Vendetta Fighter will provide an update on this article if Scott Coker, Royce Gracie or Bellator responds to this call-out from Sherk.

I'm glad Royce Gracie won that fight last night, now I'm just to go ahead and say what I've been thinking for the last…
