Bodog welterweight Nick "The Goat" Thompson, a close friend and top training partner of UFC lightweight champ Sean Sherk, recently weighed in on Sherk testing positive for banned substances. The following are taken from Thompson's InsideFighting.com column:
- "Sean is the, not one of, but actually the hardest working person I have ever met. Fans and even other fighters have accused Sean of using steroids because of the way he looks. Come to the gym, see him workout."
- "Not only is Sean a hard worker, he is a good person. I have never seen Sean lie not even white lies. Sean’s word is gold. If he tells you he is going to do something, its money in the bank."
- "I ask that fans wait until after his CSAC hearing before passing judgment. If Sean truly is innocent, as I believe, his name has already been unjustly tarnished."
I appreciate this point of view on the Sherk steroid scandal, and I commend Thompson for speaking his mind and sharing his feelings.
