A lightweight bout between Sean Sherk (33-4-1 MMA, 7-4 UFC) and Gleison Tibau (12-7 MMA,
5-4 UFC), first targeted for UFC 103 in September, will instead take place in October at UFC
104.

 Sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) of the change of
plans, though the UFC has made no formal announcement.




 UFC 104 takes place Oct. 24 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and features a main of UFC
light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida vs. challenger Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.

It's not been determined if the Sherk vs. Tibau bout will be part of the night's pay-per-view main
card or un-aired preliminary card.

Sherk fights for the first time since his disappointing unanimous-decision loss to Frankie Edgar
at UFC 98. Sherk, an accomplished wrestler and ground fighter, opted to keep the fight
standing, but Edgar displayed a rarely seen stand-up game that had improved drastically over
the past couple years. Sherk, who went 15-1 from 2003 to 2007, has now lost two of his past
three fights.
