After Sean Sherk lost his appeal with the California State Athletic Commission he vowed that things weren’t over. At the time it sounded like one of those things you say to make yourself feel better, like when you get fired from a job and vow to come back and burn the place to the ground. You don’t really intend on doing it; you just don’t want someone else to think they’ve gotten the last word.
But apparently Sean Sherk is the kind of guy who makes that angry vow and doesn’t let it go. He told MMA Weekly recently that he is still considering legal action against the CSAC once he gets this whole reclaiming the lightweight title business behind him. You know, just tying up some loose ends.
“Right now, basically, I was cleared to fight, had a date in mind, had a goal in mind and so I just wanted to first off get this fight out of the way and get my career back on track,” said Sherk during a recent appearance on MMAWeekly Radio. “And there’s no statute of limitations as far as how long I have to do this thing by, so I’m still talking to my lawyer. We’re still working some stuff out, and after this fight, maybe that’s something that we can go back to.”
Not exactly sure what legal grounds Sherk has to go after the CSAC, or what he hopes to gain in the process, but if I were Sherk’s legal counsel I might advise him to let it go and move on. He has said repeatedly that he’ll never fight again in the state of California. If he sticks to that, won’t they have been punished enough?
