The war of words between BJ Penn and Sean Sherk continues. Last week, Penn spoke out about Sherk’s suspension for performance enhancing drugs saying, “The guy has been cheating for how many years? At least everybody knows now what everybody had suspected the whole time.” Now, Sherk has fired back, accusing Penn of being a habitual marijuana smoker. Sherk told Fighthype.com: “Oh, nice! My response is Iâ<80><99>ve done everything I could do to prove my innocence, including a polygraph examination. Iâ<80><99>d like to strap him up to a polygraph and find out when was the last time he smoked reefer. The guy is a pothead and he wants to talk about natural title belts and thatâ<80><99>s not true. Heâ<80><99>s got secrets and heâ<80><99>s not fighting for a natural title belt so he could say what he wants to say, but I hooked myself up to a polygraph and Iâ<80><99>d like to see him do the same.”
The long awaited UFC 79 is tomorrow night. UFC held a press conference yesterday featuring comments and a question and answer session with Georges St-Pierre, Matt Hughes, Chcuk Liddell, Wanderlai Silva, and UFC president Dana White.
