Sean Sherk tests positive.

Sean Sherk tested positive for Nandralone (Decadurabolin) in his 7/7 defense of his UFC world lightweight title match against Hermes Franca.

Loretta Hunt reported on Fight Network radio that Greg Nelson has indicated Sherk will challenge the test result.

Because the fight was in California, and not Nevada, the commission doesn’t have the power to overturn the result of the match.

UFC has not yet made a statement regarding the test result. Sherk has 30 days to request a hearing. If he fails to successfully appeal the test result, one would think UFC would have little choice but to strip him of his championship.
