After last night i'm wondering who's going to be able to stop Sherk in that division? Would be cool to see a BJ Penn matchup!

Sherk looked Muay impressivo...It would be interesting to get Hermes on a better S&C program...and get the guy off the fejioda!

The Penn match-up would be epic.

His conditioning was good, but he didn't finish it!! Maybe they should throw that into his training.

Yeah, that would be a great fight, although I got the impression at the end of his fight with Pulver that BJ wanted go back up to welterweight.

I would also like to see Spencer Fisher get a shot at Sherk. His stand-up was very sharp in his fight against Sam Stout. You throw Roger Huerta and perhaps some of the guys from Ultimate Fighter 5 into the mix, and you have the potential for some great lightweight fights.

I missed the fight on Saturday... how were the rest of the fights?

All were good IMO...the Nogeira fight was frustrating...I wanted Nogiera to win but when Herring could not capitalize on his opportunity....super frustrating. I think conditioning was an issue.

Programming point:
Sean is a fighter and performs this type of work 2x per week....NOT 3-on-1-off.
So CrossFit is too demanding on the body in your opinion? New to the site here and looking for all the info I can get.

CF is great preparation for BJJ/MMA.

In general, combining the traditional CF WOD training schedule, 3 on 1 off, with (for example) a BJJ schedule of 4 days a week would be an overload on your body. BJJ training is a great met-con workout by itself, considering that nearly all academies go through some sort of conditioning/S&C program as part of the class.

I'm not saying that a strict combination couldn't be done with great success but you'd need to place a serious emphasis on nutrition & recovery...basically quit your job and train full time.

It depends on what your definition of a Xfit workout is...is it 5x5....metcons like Cindy (or any of the other names)...Max Effort stuff...etc..etc....I call XFit workouts the metcon (metabolic conditioning) that last like 20-30 min....usually the stuff that has the names like Cindy, etc. That type of training is great for conditioning....but much like all or any type of training, more is not neccessarily better. I would use the metcon stuff 1-2x a week along with varied strength and skills....and without proper recovery....your training will get you nowhere.
