Sean Sherk is so very very very stupid

Talk about potentially shooting yourself in the face after shooting yourself in the foot. In this latest interview, Sean Sherk admits he had tainted supplements, but says it’s not his fault if there’s steroids in the stuff he takes if it’s not on the label. Then he follows up by saying this:

Sherk: I’ve thought about that a lot. What I need to do is protect myself better next time. First of all there is nothing I can do about contamination. Everything I take is legal and it does help so it’s not an option. I’m going to continue taking supplements. But I’m going to also get pre-fight tests done, both blood and urine, before I fight. If something like this happens again we just go from there.

So basically Sherk is going to continue doing what he was doing before, and when he does a pre-fight test a week before the fight he’s going to pull out because SURPRISE! He’s gonna have more steroids in his system. That’ll really be great … there’s nothing better than having a main event title match involving BJ Penn (or Joe Stevenson!!!) cancelled last second because a nimrod didn’t learn his lesson already.

You can check out the rest of his big stupid quote regarding this after the jump.

IF: You said that you all also found some supplement contamination in things you had taken. Talk about that please. What, exactly, did you find?

Sherk: Yeah, it was actually a testosterone booster in my Glucosamine supplement. It was just a regular Glucosamine supplement. I had seven of my twenty two supplements tested. That was one of the supplements I decided to send in to the lab. Testosterone boosters raise a test number. There’s no proof that’s exactly what caused it but it’s clear that there is contamination and it could be the cause.

IF: Shouldn’t you have known what was in your supplements and if they could have caused problems for you in tests?

Sherk: See, what happens is the companies have the products and they have to list what’s in the product. If they list something that’s illegal then that’s my fault. It’s my job to know what I can and cannot take. If I take something that has something illegal or banned on the label, then it’s my fault. But what some companies do is they put things in their products that are not supposed to be there so you can get a little more effect and think, “Hey this is a great product.” For the average person that may be fine but for guys like me that compete and are tested I could be entitled to one hell of good lawsuit.

When companies have the supplements made there are hundreds and hundreds made at the same place using the same equipment. One company may have one thing up to commission standards but another may not and when they make something like Glucosamine they put a little bit of this and a little bit that. That’s where the contamination comes from. My Glucosamine had the testosterone booster, that’s contamination and I’ve learned that happens a lot. I just read about a study in USA Today that said 25 percent of all supplements are contaminated

I didn’t even know what contamination was before. Now I’m doing all this research. I take twenty two different supplements. With 25 percent of those supplements having the risk of being contaminated that increases my chances of having contamination pretty well. I can’t stop taking supplements, I need the stuff and its legal so what am I going to do? I can’t test all of my supplements; it’s about $350 to $500 per test.

IF: Obviously, you are maintaining your innocence in this case and saying that you did not knowingly take a banned substance, but that doesn’t it make it less likely the things you say happened with the contamination and testing won’t happen again. What are you going to do from this point on to try and guard against that?

Sherk: I’ve thought about that a lot. What I need to do is protect myself better next time. First of all there is nothing I can do about contamination. Everything I take is legal and it does help so it’s not an option. I’m going to continue taking supplements. But I’m going to also get pre-fight tests done, both blood and urine, before I fight. If something like this happens again we just go from there.

I’ve been tested eight times in six years and passed them all until the most recent one. It’s scary but you just got to go on with what you got to do.

    Huh? Nice use of language:
    “He had tainted suppliments”
    What’s that called when you could have two different meanings for a second? Oh yeah, it’s called a smart ass fightlinker who hates him some Sean Sherk. That crazy fuck was my idol before he juiced, but I guess it’s possible that he didn’t. He’s really adamant about it. Juicer.

  • Cyrus says:

    Wow, two different meaning for a SENTENCE either. Man I’m always hyped up on ya-ba, thai cofee and chicken blood when I write on this fucking thing. You can’t hold me accountable for shit.

  • Cyrus says:

    either? either? FUCKING EVEN. I give up, I’m gonna fuck all of you.

  • Autoguy says:

    Sean Sherk is a douchbag. He’s covering up his steroid use or he’s incredibly stupid. Either way he’s making it really hard not to hate him.

  • I’m of the opinion that he got his steroids through his supplements. Doesn’t change the fact that he was using steroids. And now he knows about it and STILL isn’t doing anything about it because he ‘needs’ those supplements. Yeah, I’m sure you do, buddy.

  • MMA Fever says:

    Sherk isn’t the only fighter taking supplements so the “tainted” supplements theory is for shit otherwise it would would be the onset of a massive investigation by the FDA.

    Sherk wrote the Mitchell report… get over it and add him to a growing list of cheaters.

    At least Tim Sylvia manned up to the use of Roids by saying he was using it as a dieretic to lose weight for the fight.

  • Cyrus says:

    MMA Fever: na… That dude takes more suppliments than you’d fucking believe. He’s a psychotic. He’s way out of the norm for even a MMA fighter / athlete.

  • Wu Tang says:

    He has a small dick…. That alone is enough for me to not take suppliments… Winning the belt or pleasuring his wife in bed… hmm touch choices….

    Muscle shark is retarded.. He is a meat head, so dont expect poetic words to come out of his mouth. I wonder what wsa his pick line for his wife.. “Say, i have big muscles, they are for show… Other places arent as big though….. but i can make a living doing construction!! Lets get hitched!”

  • groda says:

    He won’t fight in Cali cause he doesn’t trust Quest laboratories, Unfortunately NSAC also uses Quest labs, So will he be able to fight in Nevada?

    And I’m still of the opinion that he just mistimed his cycle. After all he doesn’t seem all that smart.

  • Xavier says:

    Hermes Franca: Knowingly take steroids to try to heal an injury because you know how fucked the UFC is about taking away title shots from injured people, then when caught, admit your mistake like a man and say you accept that it was a bad decision = One year suspension by CSAC.

    Sean Sherk: Take a bunch of steroids per his usual training regimen, get caught finally, challenge the CSAC results with a “shit thrown against the wall strategy”, hire some loudmouth attorney who talks shit about CSAC, never admit your wrong-doing to the point of saying that you won’t fight in California because you think they’re assholes for not believing you and then go on in interviews to defend the supplements you try to claim were the result of your steroid usage = Reduced suspension to six months by CSAC.

    That’s fucked up. Poor Hermes, way to show mercy to those who are contrite, government assholes.

  • Shawn says:

    Like I said in the last thread. What a fucking douche!

    It doesn’t matter if the supplements are legal. They contain illegal shit, and he’s going to fail another test, and bitch and moan about it being in his supplement.

    Maybe the reason they work so well is that they have STEROIDS in them!

  • Higgz says:

    I honestly do believe Sherk. I agree that it doesn’t change the fact he tested positive and therefore can’t hold on to his title. But, he has the chance to earn it back in his next fight.

    I also say that if you’re taking 20 or more supplements and test positive once in 8 years and are surprised, you’re a moron!

  • operator says:

    Perhaps he is not worthy enough to hold his own in the UFC without his “supplements”. I wonder if he is scared to fight without his “suplements” for fear that he might not be able to perform without his “supplements” and by supplements I mean steroids.

  • geordie says:

    Man you guys are all retarded. Sherk is right. If a supplement company puts nandrolone in a glucosamine supplement and doesn’t tell anybody, and you take that (legal) supplement and test positive, who is at fault morons???

    Most of the UFC fighters are on steroids of various types. If any of you actually were fighters you would know this. But you’re not.
