Wow, that is disapointing. I like Hermes and I like watching him fight, but this is bad. It didn't seem to help and now he can't fight for a year.

Risk > Reward

It says at the bottom that it was Drostanolone.

Aren't main events and title fights 100%? So he knew he was going to get busted. He owns his own gym and has plenty of sponsors so I doubt it was to put food on the table.

This is getting ridiculous. Sherk, Franca, and seemingly all others are juicebags

Why do people think they can beat the test? My guess is he'll say some supplement caused it like everyone else says. People are so down on Barry Bonds but he never pops positive

i can accept francas excuse, and im sure he was honest in giving it, im going to have to wait and see if sherk mans up like hermes did. i still think that if he used his head he could have made more money than this one fight and not missed a year of fighting. the steroid use is getting out of control and dana is going to have to address it VERY soon. that said i hope hermes and sherk will boh learn something from this and hopefully other fighters will stop doing this as it becomes more publicized
