Sean Sherk releases statement about positive test

UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk has finally released a statement after it was revealed last week that he had tested positive for steroids leading up to his fight against Hermes Franca at UFC 73.

Sherk’s statement is as follows:

“At the present time I cannot explain the positive drug test in Sacramento California. I know I have never used any steroids or any other banned substances, I am investigating possible causes of my positive test with my attorney. I have never cheated, all of my success has come from hard work and dedication to my sport.”

Sherk’s appeal will be heard by the California State Athletic Commission on August 6 at 10 a.m. ET.

If Sherk is proved correct, then many reporters such as myself will be left with a lot of egg on their faces. If Sherk is found innocent, I will gladly apologize for a rush to judgment. However, instead of being angry at reporters, Sherk’s blame should be directed at every athlete who tested positive before him that proclaimed innocence when they were in fact guilty.

    Where does Sherk come off as angry at reporters? Is it somewhere besides this statement?

    Why does Sherk have to blame anyone? It just seems like he made a statement, proclaiming his innocence, and is going to go to the hearing with some evidence proving it…

    The last sentence of the post doesn’t seem really warranted w/ this situation…not yet anyways…

    the truth will come out
