    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.

    Normal levels of Nandrolone range from 2 ng/mL (average person) to 6 ng/mL (athlete engaged in rigorous activity). Mr. Sherk's reported level certified by the Director of Science and Technology from the laboratory that conducted the tests was 12 ng/mL. Both the "A" sample and "B" sample were tested and confirmed as positive.

    I love the guy, but he should be stripped of his title.

    it can't be good for a division they are bringing back and trying to push heavily to not have any title shots for at least a year

    if they do strip him of his title a tourny would be an awesome way to crown a new champ.

    The athletic commissions won't allow a same-night tournament, will they?

    They could just have each round of the tourny at consecutive UFC events until the finals. They tourny idea is great.

    They should just have Penn face Gomi and bind the UFC/Pride LW titles

    Gomi is a paper champ anyways, if he wins this then we can at least say he is UFC/Pride champ

    Penn vs. Fisher would be the easiest for Dana to put together.

    F*CK ME. This sh*t is getting RIDICULOUS. When are fighters going to learn that the commissions are REALLY cracking down on banned substance use... In for LW tourney for the belt!
