Injured Sherk Haunted By Steroid Suspension
(sherdog.com)
"Sean Sherk’s 2007 steroid suspension is always just a few steps behind him. The former UFC lightweight champion was reminded of that last week when he withdrew with a shoulder injury from his bout against Gleison Tibau at UFC 104 on Oct. 24 in Los Angeles. Sherk’s injury was scrutinized, however, when it was reported that he had been scheduled to take a drug test with the California State Athletic Commission required for his re-licensure that same week."

Bob Sapp to face Sokoudjou at DREAM 11
(mmaweekly.com)
Bob "The Beast" Sapp (16-5-1) will stand in for an injured Gegard Mousasi to face Rameau Thierry Sokodjou in the semifinals of Dream's Super Hulk Tournament Oct. 6 at Dream 11. The fill-in is just one of four professional engagements Sapp said is either done or close to done on his immediate schedule. The day after his Dream booking, he is set for a kickboxing match against Alain "The Panther" Ngalani in Hong Kong. The weekend after that, he's working on an MMA fight in Texas that is "80 percent done." Then, in late October, he plans to go back to Korea for a pro wrestling engagement, with more globetrotting in the pipeline for November and December.

Wes Sims: homeless to TUF House
(mixedmartialarts.com)
CP: Were you ever worried about the stigma of getting back into the UFC via the reality show? Or did you just think that whatever got you in the UFC was worth it? WES SIMS: No, people understand. Good or bad, there’s nothing that’s going to hurt Wes Sims. I’m a certified black man when I want to be. I’ve been on BET. I was on the “Iron Ring” for God’s sakes. You were? I didn’t know that. I guess I didn’t watch much of that show.

Martin Kampmann ‘not worried about title shots’ heading into UFC 103 bout against Paul Daley
(mmamania.com)
UFC 103: “Franklin vs. Belfort” took a big blow last week when it was announced that Mike Swick would no longer be able to compete against Martin Kampmann in a number one contender qualifier matchup, thanks to a “Quick” concussion suffered during training. In a stacked welterweight division that includes contenders Jon Fitch, Thiago Alves, Matt Hughes, Matt Serra, Josh Koscheck and more, champion Georges St. Pierre has soundly defeated everyone he’s faced and in the process eliminated potential challengers to his title. Swick and Kampmann, with a combined 29-4 record inside the Octagon and who are both undefeated in their campaigns at 170 lbs, were two of the few welterweights remaining with a legitimate claim as a top division contender.

DREAM 11: Gesias ‘JZ’ Cavalcante vs Daisuke Nakamura on Oct. 6
(mmamania.com)
A lightweight tilt between Gesias Cavalcante (14-3-1) and Daisuke Nakamura (20-10) has been added to the upcoming DREAM 11 event from the Yokohama Arena in Kanagawa, Japan on Oct. 6. Cavalcante looks to rebound from a unanimous decision loss to Tatsuya Kawajiri at DREAM 9. A two-time K-1 Hero’s champion, “JZ” has run into a rough patch as of late. After incurring a decision loss to Shinya Aoki in the preliminary round of the Lightweight Grand Prix, he was forced to undergo surgery. Upon his scheduled return to competition on New Year’s Eve last year, he experienced an unexpected and demoralizing mishap.

Gray Maynard Focused on Roger Huerta, Not Lightweight Title
(mma.fanhouse.com)
If Gray Maynard wanted to, he could make a pretty good case that he deserves to be the No. 1 contender for the UFC lightweight title. After breaking into the UFC on the fifth season of The Ultimate Fighter and knocking himself out in a bizarre no contest on that season's Finale, Maynard has gone 5-0, and he's dominated all five opponents. But as Maynard prepares to fight Roger Huerta on the September 16 Ultimate Fight Night card, he says he won't lobby for a shot at the lightweight championship, even if he beats Huerta. Instead, Maynard says in an interview with FanHouse that he's putting all his energy into fighting Huerta, and that as long as he keeps winning, he's sure a title shot will come.

Middleweight Nate Quarry relying on "old-man strength" for win at UFC Fight Night 19

When middleweight slugger Nate Quarry (11-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) steps into the cage against Tim Credeur (12-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) on the main card of "UFC Fight Night 19: Diaz vs. Guillard" on Sept. 16, there will be a bit of an old-school feel to the contest. But despite an apparent striking advantage on the feet and a potential jiu-jitsu deficiency, Quarry said he won't be relying on any particular gameplan to earn a victory.

"TUF 10" competitor Scott Junk took different path to UFC, now he's on long road back
(mmajunkie.com)
Scott Junk (6-2-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) doesn't exactly fit the stereotype for the house on "The Ultimate Fighter 10." "I'm simple – just a normal everyday working guy," Junk said. "These guys are ex-football players and young guys who are spoiled who don't have jobs. They're complaining about things that I thought were luxuries." That's because Junk doesn't have the traditional mixed-martial-arts pedigree. A Hawaiian who fell into MMA after an All-American Division II college football career and who later gained his full-time job in sewage line construction, Junk is also unique because of his UFC background.

The Case for Chuck Liddell Appearing on "Dancing With the Stars"
(bloodyelbow.com)
The stumbling block often issued against this idea -- namely, that the marriage between a dance competition and MMA is not natural and therefore meaningless -- should be discounted. DWTS is good precisely because it doesn’t force Liddell to adhere to outdated conceptions of fight sport participants. Those who fear fighting or are unaccustomed to viewing it as sport ultimately believe fighters are static characters who can do nothing but their occupation. Liddell is being given an opportunity unlike what he’s received in B-movies and HBO’s “Entourage”: the chance to demonstrate what else he can do and maybe reveal a little human personality along the way.

UFC Newcomer Jay Silva Still Doesn't Believe His Dream Has Come True
(mma.fanhouse.com)
Two years ago, Jay Silva was just a nightclub bouncer in New York City who got into a lot of fights and liked watching MMA on television. Then a chance encounter with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson at UFC 78 in Newark, N.J., led to him moving to California to begin his MMA career. Next week, he'll make his Octagon debut when he steps in on short notice to face CB Dollaway at UFC Night 19 in Oklahoma City. Dollaway's original opponent, Dan Miller, was forced to withdraw from the bout after suffering an undisclosed infection.
