Sean Sherk: Exercise (not insanity) prompted post-UFC 98 exodus

Props: Sherdog.com

Quoteworthy:

"After the fight was over I went for a run. I was kind of frustrated and just had to burn off some steam, so I just went for a jog, and I left before I talked to the doctor. The doctor didn’t get a chance to look at me. I wasn’t hurt at all so I just said f--- it, I’m going for a run. The [NSAC] got kind of pissed because I didn’t talk to the doctor first and they suspended me for 45 days for that. It’s kind of excessive I think. I don’t think I deserve to get suspended for going for a run. I wasn’t gone that long. I was gone maybe an hour. But what do you do?"

Former UFC Lightweight Champion Sean Sherk explains why he bolted from the Octagon and into the streets of Las Vegas following his unanimous decision loss to Frank Edgar at UFC 98: "Evans vs. Machida" at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. "The Muscle Shark" eventually returned to the venue to submit his post-fight urinalysis. If he didn’t, Sherk would have been in major trouble from the Nevada State Athletic Commission -- who insist Sherk’s suspension was strictly medical and had nothing to do with him running for the hills following the bout.
