Does the "UFC All Access" curse truly exist?
UFC Lightweight Champion Sean Sherk will be the latest candidate to test out the bizarre phenomenon, which has claimed other titleholders before him such as Georges St. Pierre (UFC 69), Matt Hughes (UFC 65) and Andrei Arlovski (UFC 59).
In fact, then 205-pound king Chuck Liddell (UFC 66) is the rare exception in recent history to not fall victim.
Sherk will be featured this Monday, July 2, at 11:30 p.m. on "UFC All Access," which airs on the Spike TV network. The special -- hosted by UFC spokesmodel Rachelle Leah -- will give us an inside look at his training and preparation for Hermes Franca.
Sherk and Franca are set to clash at UFC 73: "Stacked" on July 7.
In addition, "UFC 73 Countdown" will air at 10:30 p.m. ET that same night. Expect this special to showcase the two title fights on the card, as well as the light heavyweight showdown between Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans.
It should be a solid night of UFC programming to prepare us for the monster show one week from today.
Don't miss it.
