Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Sean Sherk Is Chasing James Irvin’s ‘Most Cursed’ Title

(Sean Sherk groggily gets back to his feet as a spectator with tiny arms and a vague resemblance to Bruce Campbell yawns in disbelief.)

There are times when every fighter comes face to face with the end of the road. For Sean Sherk, withdrawing from three consecutive fights may be one of these times. As first reported by FiveOuncesofPain, the Muscle Shark has pulled out of his scheduled matchup with Clay Guida at the "UFC on Versus" event (March 21st; Broomfield, Colorado) due to lingering injuries. Sherk hasn’t competed since his unanimous decision loss to Frankie Edgar at UFC 98 in May. Since then, Sherk has pulled out of a fight against Gleison Tibau in October (shoulder injury), and was struck down by the UFC 108 curse (cut over right eye) after being penciled in to face Jim Miller.

Filling in for Sherk against Clay Guida will likely be Shannon Gugerty (12-4, 2-2 UFC), who was most recently choked out by Terry Etim at UFC 105, but has earned first-round submissions over Dale Hartt and Matt Grice during his stint in the Octagon.

I don't see why people hate this guy so much... I did one of his seminars and he was a really laid back guy... He talked to us about his previous fights, and offered up advice to our guys that actually fight... He even went out to eat with us afterward, and watched the UFC PPV that was on that night at one of our houses... I wish him a speedy recovery.

Fuck Sean Sherk. When was the last time that faggot won a fight? I'm too lazy to look. You're on steroids, sherk, and you're still a joke. Go ahead and fade into obscurity.

Zyz Zyx... How do you pronounce that?? And good point about roids. His body is breaking down like a(insert joke here)... Moderation, people. Moderation.

Too much of a good thing- be it crack, smack, roids, vagineee, beer, booze, herb, bacon cheeseburgers- can be bad. (Pedro Cerrano voice)"Very, very bad."

Sherk is learning what it's like to NOT be on steroids anymore.

I was looking forward to seeing some more Sherk lay-n-pray...damn. :(

I must say, I'm not totally shocked. However, I was looking forward to seeing him and Clay hit it up. I really didn't think that Clay could have handled Sherk if they'd met.
