Well, so much for the era of Sherk as the dominant champ. If UFC wanted to gain some good pub for itself in the wake of this (and in the wake of the Benoit/Bonds controversy), they'd come down hard on Sherk and Franca even post-suspension. Sherk especially....he's the champ, for pete's sake. He even had that big episode of UFC Unleashed where he went on and on about how he's a fitness freak and how he takes such great care of his body. What a phony.
If I had to guess, I'd say it'll be BJ Penn vs. the winner of Stevenson/Pellegrino for the vacated title.
Yep. I was pretty down when I read this yesterday. I went home and played Nascar Thurder for a couple hours just to hear Benny's voice over and over. Benny kept telling me that Earnhardt was racing to the front - now they're both on the front row.
