Default Tyson Griffin vs Sean Sherk Official for UFC 90 in Chicago and MORE!!

Tyson Griffin vs Sean Sherk Official for UFC 90 in Chicago and MORE!!

Chris Insinna

Rising 155-pound star Tyson Griffin will put his four fight winning streak on the line at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois on October 25th when he squares off against his most accomplished foe to date, former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk, in a key matchup on the UFC 90 main card.

Las Vegas’ Griffin has been nearly perfect in his UFC stint, going 5-1 since making his Octagon debut in 2006. Among his victims are Clay Guida, Thiago Tavares, Gleison Tibau, and most recently, Marcus Aurelio. In Sherk, Griffin will be taking on a nine year veteran of the sport who is looking to get back in the win column after a loss to BJ Penn in their UFC 84 title fight in May.

Also added to the UFC 90 card is a battle for Brazilian bragging rights when Fortaleza’s Hermes Franca takes on Rio Grande Norte’s Gleison Tibau in a lightweight bout, and a clash of former Ultimate Fighter alumni between season two’s Josh Burkman and season four’s Pete Sell, who will be making his welterweight debut in the UFC’s initial foray into the Windy City.

the fights have not been officially posted on UFC.com yet..but this article came from it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

James Irvin Made An “Extremely Poor Choice”, Took Pain Medication Without Prescription

UFC light heavyweight James Irvin, in a letter to the Nevada State Athletic Commission obtained by Sherdog, has confirmed his use of painkillers in advance of his 205-pound main event bout against UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC Fight Night 14 in July.

“In the days leading up to my fight with Anderson Silva, I experienced some residual pain in my foot from a previous injury,” wrote Irvin in the letter. “I made the extremely poor choice to take some pain medications that I did not have a prescription for. I realize this was an ignorant and dangerous decision.”

Irvin faces a fine and suspension for the failed drug test which will be determined at a future NSAC hearing.

Jason Day out, Jason MacDonald in versus Jason Lambert at UFC 88

Veteran middleweight Jason MacDonald (20-10 MMA, 4-3 UFC) will replace an injured Jason Day (17-7 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and will fight Jason Lambert (23-8 MMA, 4-3 UFC) at next month's UFC 88 event.

The fight is scheduled for the preliminary card of UFC 88, which takes place at Atlanta's Allstate Arena on Sept. 6.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

James Lee injured, replaced by Mike Patt at UFC 88

UFC light heavyweight James Lee (13-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) has suffered an arm injury and will be replaced in his UFC 88 fight with Tim Boetsch (7-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) by UFC newcomer Mike Patt (11-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

Yeah, myself I'm not too sure. I'd say Griffin has the Talent, without the experience, so it could be close.

Also on a side note, I believe Irvin. How ****ing hard is it to get a prescription for painkillers, especially if you damage your body for a living? It probably was simply an oversight/error of judgment.

Tyson Griffin by Guillotine / TKO R2

I can see Sherk trying a desperate take down after getting shook by Tyson's boxing and either getting TKO'd or stuck in a Guillotine. Either way I think Tyson Griffin has this one in the bag. He's got power in those hands that we really haven't seen in the UFC yet, it takes a hell of a shot to rock the California Kid. (Griffin vs Faber)
