UFC News: Sherk and Franca test positive for steroids following UFC 73

UFC Lightweight Champion Sean Sherk tested positive for Nandrolone Metabolite following his bout at UFC 73. Sherk has been fined $2,500 and suspended for one year (effective as of July 7).

Sherk’s opponent that evening, Hermes Franca, was also fined $2,500 and has been suspended for one year.

Another case of the UFC getting more and more like the WWE. It's good that these guys were caught though, hopefully it will act as a lesson for others in the UFC.

It's a shame though that these guys threw away the opportunities that they had. When their bans are over, will the UFC give them another shot, or will they end up at BlowdogFight?
