Ther is an article on the fight network that says Sherk will likely be the nymber 1 contender once his suspension is up, though i agree with you...

I didn't think they were going to...with Dana saying how much he trusted Sherk while this was going on and all. I doubt they make him work back up from the very bottom, but I do see him having to win prob 3 in a row before he regains a title shot. Just what I would do. Like if he had lost a title defense, win a couple and your back in the mix.

I heard this a few days ago. Apperently the oringinal report was only made because the UFC didn't want to make a formal announcement. With all the false reports I guess they decided to make the formal announcement.

Sylvia came back and fought for the title immediately, so i don't see this being any different.

IDK...with the rumors going haywire like this I don't think I am willing to belive anything until I see it on UFC.com! I've seen opposites today, not to mention all the back and forth articles that I have seen over the past week or so. Maybe they will announce it tonight at the UFN, and that BJ/Stevenson will be for the title....not interim.

Good news !!

it was the only choice for the credibility of the ufc and the sport !!

now, i will not try to say that Sherk must fight is way up again, i think he will be the first to fight Bj or Joe after there fight.

i hope this doesnt get to his head and change his routine, but i dont think he will, sherk will be the same as in all his fights.

I doubt it. Sherk has always looked phenomenal. He is without a doubt one of the most impressive fighters in the sport. At 155 i dont think anyone can touch him. BJ Penn has to fight him though.

Look I don't mean to burst your bubble but Sherk hasn't finished a fight in UFC or Pride that was not due to cut or injury.
