Sean Sherk, the reigning UFC World Lightweight Champion, who last competed on July 7, 2007 in Sacramento, has tested positive for Nandrolone Metabolite. He has been fined $2,500. His suspension period runs from the conclusion of his bout on July 7, 2007 through the remainder of his licensing year which is June 26, 2008. Furthermore, he has been assessed an additional 10 days in order to fulfill the terms of his suspension (365 total days). The additional days will be added at the beginning of his next licensing year when he reapplies.

so whats the prob? at least in MMA when these guys test positive they are temp removed from the sport, unlike baseball where they just keep on playing even though the whole world knows they are doing roids.

Why should they even be tested? They have weight breaks and it is, after all, fairly freestyle.

You can say whatever you want. Boxings latest big event wasn't even in the top 10 of PPV sales. Numbers tell the story. Boxing is failing miseably and will continue to do so. So shut your ignorant ass up.

DLH vs PBF???

The one that broke the all time PPV sales with 2.12millions buys and grossed over 110million & counting.

Who's ignorant?

Now I know never to discuss something with you again.

boxing....lol. Who's the heavy weight champion? I couldn't even guess???? If you think boxing is just as popular as it's alway been, you're just crazy. Boxing will continue to get less and less attention while MMA will get more. True story.

Do you think it would be fair for you to go up against a guy all roided up? Think about getting into a race with a guy using a hidden nitrous kit that he didn't tell you about until they searched his car after the race.

You might still be limited to weight, but when you're facing someone that has been training 2 times harder then you because he can recover faster, good luck. I honestly thought Sean Sherk was au' natural

-The following is from the official MySpace Blog of UFC Lightweight champion "The Muscle Shark" Sean Sherk: "At the present time I cannot explain the positive drug test in Sacramento California. I know I have never used any steroids or any other banned substances, I am investigating possible causes of my positive test with my attorney. I have never cheated, all of my success has come from hard work and dedication to my sport!"

I don't believe most of those who appeal their drug faliures, but I think Sherk is telling the truth.

Not entirely true. I understand your point and somewhat agree.

From the fighters view you have to understand a few things. Yes, it gives greater strength no doubt, but it also reduces the amount of recovery time for these guys (athletes in general as well) When a fighter is lucky to get even ONE fight a year that means it's the ONE time they might get a decent pay day for one night's work that would normally take all year to make. So the idea of taking something that would give greater strength, speed, endurance, reduce the odds of injury, help improve perfomance and hopefully be good enough to get another fight within the same year.


Honestly ask yourself, in their place, what extremes would you go to make your year's salary in ONE NIGHT? I think anyone would be tempted to do it. Right or wrong.

I thought Sherk made Franca look like shit. I was very surprised how one sided this fight was. I was expecting it to be a back and forth fight. I would have never thought Sherk would controled Franca as easy as he did, because Francas Jiu-Jitsu is awsome. When Sherk passed his guard I couldn't believe it. But, then he kept doing it over and over. Franca seemed like he was out classed big time.

I don't know about that. I think it will be a good fight if Penn has the cardio(and if not, it will be a very good first two rounds). I don't think Sherk could finish Penn(unless Penn gasses), but I could see Penn finishing Sherk.

Cant believe I am about to say this, but I agree and feel the same as you do. He just doesnt seem like the type of guy / fighter that would stoop to that level.
