Sherk Remains 155-lb. Champion (For Now)

Despite early promises to the strip the lightweight title away from Sean Sherk if his steroid suspension was upheld the UFC has yet to make a formal announcement regarding the future of the division, specifically whether or not current champion Sean Sherk will be stripped of the title. Steve Seivert of The Houston Chronicle contacted UFC officials who confirmed that Sherk remains the promotion’s champion.

With no official comment made on Sherk’s reduced suspension it is hard to determine what direction the promotion will go. However, if the past is any indication, Sherk will likely be stripped of the lightweight belt and will fight the winner of January’s bout between BJ Penn and Joe Stevenson in mid-2008 in an attempt to reclaim his title.
