Gerald Strebendt has agreed to step in as a late replacement and fight Sean Sherk in one of the co-main events of Extreme Challenge 58 this Friday in Medina, Minn.

'You'll never accomplish anything great if you don't put yourself on the line,' Strebendt said. 'If Sherk wasn't one of the top guys in the wprld, I wouldn't take the fight on such short notice. But he is one of the best, so it puts me in a position to test myself.'

Strebendt is a UFC and Bushido veteran with an 8-4 MMA record. He is a brown belt in BJJ under Eddie Bravo and is a former sniper instructor for the Marines. Sherk is 24-1-1 with his lone loss coming against Matt Hughes for the UFC welterweight championship.

Strebendt is biting off more than he can chew IMO.

Sherk is a bad ass, I bet he could beat BJ. The guy has never been subbed and has a mauling GnP.

Strebendt is a solid, young fighter. But Sherk is out of his league. He's too strong and skilled for him. Sherk by ground and pound decision.

Sherk will take this, Strebendt is making a mistake taking this on short notice.....

I don't think its really a "mistake" because if he does win thats a HUGE win. I think Strebendts biggest fan right now is Josh Thomson. Imagine how good Thomson looks if Strebendt wins.

Gerald will win. It will be a tough fight. Gerald just recently beat Jean Silva and looked great doing it. I don't doubt him, however I don't doubt Sherk either. I'm actually kinda lookin forward to this.
