Following his surprising unanimous decision loss to Frankie Edgar at UFC 98 this past weekend, Sean Sherk has been suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for 45 days. On top of his required medical suspension that is. At least so he says.

Just as Dana White stated after the bout, Sherk literally ran out of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas with no shirt, and his fight shorts and gloves still on, neglecting to even give the ringside doctor a second to look him over.

According to Sherk, his emotions were running high and he went outside to take a jog and keep his emotions in check after suffering just the fourth loss of his career and his first defeat to a fighter that hasn’t currently or previously held the UFC welterweight title:

Former Sports Illustrated cover boy Roger Huerta could be receiving quite the tough test in his final fight with the UFC for the near future in the form of former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk.

According to MMA Weekly’s “MMA Insider Blog”, a bout between Huerta and Sherk could be part of the UFC’s next venture up into Canada for UFC 97, which is slated to take place on April 18 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec.

Huerta recently revealed his intention to let the remainder of his current contract with the UFC run out instead of re-signing with the promotion in order to pursue acting and modeling opportunities. The 25-year-old has since stated that he would likely return to professional competition in the future.

Sherk and Griffin Talk Lightweight Showdown

In the above video, former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk and current rising contender Tyson Griffin discuss their upcoming showdown at this weekend’s UFC 90 event, which will take place at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

Sherk-Griffin Confirmed for UFC 90

Former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk will make his return to action when he takes on standout wrestler and Xtreme Couture member Tyson Griffin at UFC 90: Silva vs. Cote, which will emanate from the Allstate Arena near Chicago on October 25th.

The UFC officially announced the bout earlier today.

Sherk’s lightweight championship reign was cut short last year because of a positive test for steroids under the watch of the California State Athletic Comission. After nearly ten months of inactivity, the Minnesota native returned suffered his first loss since winning the title at the hands of current champion B.J. Penn at UFC 84 back in May.

Meanwhile Griffin has rebounded from suffering his first professional loss to Frankie Edgar last year by winning four straight fights, most recently a unanimous decision over former PRIDE standout Marcus Aurelio at UFC 86 last month. Griffin has also defeated Thiago Tavares, Clay Guida, and Gleison Tibau over the past twelve months.

Similar to what we reported yesterday, former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk will make his official return to action when he takes on standout wrestler and Xtreme Couture member Tyson Griffin at UFC 90: Silva vs. Cote, which will emanate from the Allstate Arena near Chicago on October 25th.

Sources close to the camps of both fighters have revealed that they have agreed to fight according to MMA Weekly. Bout agreements have been sent out to both Sherk and Griffin and are expected to be signed and returned this week.

Sherk Expected to Return to Action in Fall

Multiple sources have revealed to MMA on Tap that former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk will most likely return to action at one of the organization’s planned fall events - either Chicago’s UFC 90 on October 25th or the yet-to-be-announced UFC 91 show, which is currently rumored to be taking place at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon in November.

While an opponent for Sherk’s next fight has not yet been determined, both Xtreme Couture member Tyson Griffin and one-time lightweight title challenger Joe Stevenson are said to have been thrown around by UFC officials as the most probable potential foes for Sherk.

A win for either of the three men would become even more important if current champion B.J. Penn is sent to move up in weight against Georges St. Pierre later this year, as they would either position themselves as one of the division’s top contenders or as a challenger for the winner of Saturday’s showdown between Kenny Florian and Roger Huerta.

While Sherk’s championship reign was cut short because of a positive test for steroids under the watch of the California State Athletic Comission, the Minnesota native suffered his first loss since winning the UFC’s lightweight title at the hands of Penn at UFC 84 back in May.
