There has been some speculation that a lightweight title fight between the winner of Joe Stevenson vs. B.J. Penn and Sean Sherk would be put onto the UFC 84 card in Montreal. Now, according to a report from The Fight Network, Sherk is set to return for his title shot in May:
A lightweight title match is not in the cards for the UFC’s Saturday, April 19 event at the Bell Centre in Montreal. Recently stripped champion Sean Sherk has been slated to meet the victor of the upcoming B.J. Penn-Joe Stevenson championship bout at a future UFC event on Saturday, May 24 in Las Vegas, according to close sources in two of the three fighters’ camps.
Let’s just hope he tests clean this time.
