Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Sean Sherk May Sue The CSAC

(Better lawyer up, California State Athletic Commission)

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?

@not legal
What are the exceptions?
not legal advice... but- May 15, 2008 at 7:50 pm
In California, the CSAC is only a "quasi-judicial" body, categorized as administrative in nature. As such, once that entity issues its final determination then the Petitioner (in the present instance Sherk) has only 90 days to pursue judicial review. Otherwise, barring the few exceptions, the legal game is over and the statute of limitations has run. Sean should get better legal counsel and advice on the law in California, not Minnesota.
sherk's roid shrunken sack- May 15, 2008 at 6:09 pm
BJ Penn wants to lick sean sherk's blood. Well, I, Sean Sherk, want to lick his children's blood. In order to accomplish this, I will be sucking on BJ's balls during the teabaggin that will commence when BJ mounts me and rains down hellish punishment until I get submitted. Even though he will be victorious in the UFC's and the public's eye, I will cherish my secret victory of having licked his children's blood(aka balls).

Well, I think if Sherk wins the suit doesn't go through. If he loses then he files the suit because he doesn't get the big bank role and needs the money for taking that last year off.

Sherk shown here receiving his "apology fellatio" to which is is entitled at each weigh in for all eternity. Strange bi-laws they have at the CSAC.

Sean's getting hella defensive..
this is probably just another plan to make people think he's not on roids.. or.. wasn't on roids..

If there is proof that CSAC's testing was flawed then this will actually help other fighters from getting into trouble if they actually are clean. The chain of custody is a very big deal. Imagine if this was for a real crime and someone you knew was accused. The lawsuit won't really help him in any way but it will go a long way in making sure testing is done accurately. Either way I am looking forward to this fight. It could be a classic!

Sherk's annoying chattering....

....sounds like 'roids rage to me.

Maybe Frank Shamrock can hold Sherk's hand and drive him home after Sherk gets his bitch tits removed.
BJ Penn- May 15, 2008 at 5:13 pm
THis guy is a roid head. I plan on taking him out early with heavy punishment.

I'm sure they're training hard, but I totally agree that the pre-fight talks are annoying. It's annoying in a mean-spirited-girl-fight kind of way instead of a testosterone competitive kinda way. I can't really explain it that well.

Muscle Shark has lots of free time to wag his tongue because his training is a nandrolone shot and an hour in the gym.

Is it just me or do these two need to shut the fuck up and train?
