However I am NOT saying that Sherk was actually doing anything wrong when he left, I am sure it was just the moment that he was caught up in.
The arena's in the MGM it's not like he hopped a bus to the other end of the strip. I think this is blown way out of proportion. IMO
8 weeks of blood sweat and tears. we can't understand the disappointment he felt.

If you read my posts, I did say I don't think Sherk did anything wrong. Meaning I don't think he left because he was trying to avoid the commission.

However, I do think that its important that the commission has such rules in place, and they should be followed. That's all.

One more thing, did anyone else think Sherk looked tired in the 3rd round? He has gone 5 rounds 3 times and in both the Ken-Flo and Franca fights he never looked tired. I wonder if he is no longer pushing himself or if his camp is no longer pushing him as hard as they once did.
Either that or he is getting older and he may be over training himself.

Leave him alone! He was probably upset after his loss!

That could be it. I just found it strange he seemed to gas in thins figth but not in his fight with BJ or with Tyson Griffin. I also seem to remember reading on here that Sherk's camp said something like he does not have talent he just works hard made me think that there might be some problems in the camp which means they might not be pushing him / trainign him as hard as they once did.
