Ready to hit the airwaves for the first time since his victory over Kenny Florian at UFC 64, new lightweight champion Sean Sherk highlights MMAWeekly Radio’s SoundOff tonight at 6pm PST / 9pm EST.

Sherk fought what was truly a five-round war with Florian that left both men battered and bleeding. In fact, Sherk needed 8 stitches to close the cut on his temple to become the first UFC Lightweight Champion since Jens Pulver walked away from the belt in 2002.

Here what Sherk has to say about the fight, having nearly retired from the sport, and what it means to him to be the champ.
