Sherk out, Gugerty in v Guida at UFC on Versus 1

by Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie.com
 

A rumored bout between former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk (33-4-1 MMA, 7-4 UFC) and Clay Guida (25-11 MMA, 5-5 UFC) has been scratched from the UFC's first live card on Versus.
 
The March 21 bout was recently described as "abandoned" by FiveOuncesOfPain.com, and MMAjunkie.com has since confirmed that Sherk was removed from the potential matchup for undisclosed reasons.

However, MMAjunkie.com confirmed Friday that Shannon Gugerty (12-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) has agreed to step in for "The Muscle Shark" and face Guida.

 "It pains to see exciting fighters like Kang cut when they still have doping test failing, hamster-boxing blankets like Sherk on the books." What made Kang more exciting than Sherk? Other than losing more?

Thanks Chuck. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this was a truly shit match up. It pains to see exciting fighters like Kang cut when they still have doping test failing, hamster-boxing blankets like Sherk on the books.

Maybe after he lost to Edgar and ran out of the venue shirtless in his trunks he really snapped and is having anxiety a la Karo.

I wasn't really looking forward to that fight tbh. I'm interested to see what they get as a replacement

I am pretty sure it is Sherk. I was told, but somebody from MMA academy, that Sean had a shoulder injury and there was some question as to whether or not he would heal up soon enough to still train for that fight.
