Losing streak hits three
HeavyweightUFC
January 15, 2022
Sherman lost to Jake Collier via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:26 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 32 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Sherman has shown virtually nothing over the course of two separate stints with the UFC, but the company continues to roll him back out there, and this is typically the end result. Both men landed some heavy shots early on, but Sherman found himself on the mat a couple minutes in and quickly gave up his back, allowing Collier to clamp on the rear-naked choke that ended the fight. Sherman is a big man with power, but his footwork and technique is non-existent, and it would be absolutely shocking to see the UFC give Sherman another opportunity. There's simply not much here.

Can't hang with Parker Porter
HeavyweightUFC
August 21, 2021
Sherman lost to Parker Porter via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 28-29) at UFC on ESPN 29 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Sherman has now had two separate runs with the UFC, and his combined record during that time frame is an abysmal 3-7. This poor performance against Porter may be the final straw. The only round that appeared to be in doubt here was the second. Sherman gave up a takedown and plenty of control time in Round 1 and was on the short end of a 71-39 total strike battle in Round 3. Sherman is a one-dimensional brawler with zero ground game to speak off, meaning it's nearly impossible for him to win fights in which he doesn't knock out his opposition. He may find himself on the regional circuit sooner rather than later.
Rescheduled against Porter
HeavyweightUFC
May 30, 2021
Sherman's formerly scheduled heavyweight bout against Parker Porter has been rebooked for the UFC event scheduled for Aug. 21, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Sherman was originally supposed to face Porter in mid-April, but he ended up losing a decision to veteran Andrei Arlovski after Porter was forced to withdraw. Sherman ended up with a six-month medical suspension due to several lower leg injuries, but it seems he's received the proper clearance given the announcement came just weeks after the suspension was handed down. Porter, meanwhile, last competed in November with a decision victory over Josh Parisian. Sherman will enter this matchup with four-inch height and three-inch reach advantages.
Multiple lower-body injuries

April 29, 2021
Sherman has been suspended 180 days by the Nevada Athletic Commission pending medical clearance of left knee, right foot and right leg injuries, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Sherman not only lost this fight as a favorite, but it's looking like he'll need some time on the sidelines as well. Of opponent Andrei Arlovski's 105 significant strikes landed in the match, 25 of them came via leg kicks. With several lower-body injuries to tend to, Sherman will have to sit out until the fall unless cleared earlier by a physician.
Drops decision in Vegas
HeavyweightUFC
April 17, 2021
Sherman lost to Andrei Arlovski via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
This one was straightforward, with Sherman winning Round 1 and Arlovski taking Rounds 2 and 3. Sherman was responsible for the biggest moment of the fight when he had Arlovski on the ropes in the later stages of the first frame, but he was unable to close the deal. Sherman's lack of productivity over the course of the final ten minutes was likely the result of an injury which left him unable to plant on his lead leg. He told his corner as much in between rounds. Sherman has proven to be nothing more than roster depth over the course of two separate runs with the company, posting a 3-6 record.
