The bout was recently confirmed through Sherk himself during a conversation with WICombatSports.com.
“I’m fighting January 2 against Rafaello Oliveira,” revealed Sherk. “I haven’t studied him yet, but I know he has fought my training partner Nick Lentz in Dallas. Lentz beat him, and he’s been able to give me some good advice on him.”
UFC 108 is expected for January 2 from Las Vegas, Nevada.
Sherk will be looking to get back on track following a decision loss to Frankie Edgar following a victory over Tyson Griffin, while Oliveira will also be hoping to hop back in the win column following a decision defeat in his Octagon debut at the hands of Nick Lentz during UFC 103.
