Sherk found guilty
The CSAC found SHerk guilty todayt and sentenced him to a 6 month suspension. WIth time served he can fight again in January. However, since Dana White has said if he is found guilty he will be stripped, now time will tell if that is the case. Looks like BJ v. Joe Daddy will be for the LW title and not the interim title.

I believe Dana went on record renouncing that claim. He stated that the 'mishandling' of the case caused him to change his mind apparently. The Barnacle is in this forum crying somewhere.

So they reduced the sentence, huh. Nice. I'm glad that we'll get to see him fight again soon. I think that the UFC will try to sweep it under the rug to the average Joe-Blow fan and let Sherky keep the belt.

I have a feeling Dana will do that as well. So odd, the attitude towards juicing in comparison with other sports eh?

I really think that Dana needs to strip him of the belt. He was found guilty. Give him the first shot at the winner of BJ v. Joe, that way he has a chance to redeem himself.

If supplements have been shown to cause false nandrolone positives and he takes 32 of them and trains like a madman, its not unreasonable to believe this was a false positive. Dont forget his Xience joint formula tested positive for anabolic agents (cant remember which one).
Its pathetic how the masses are so uneducated about steroids, supplements and naturally occuring hormones. As soon as the public hears an athlete failed a steroid test they bring out their torches and pitchforks and dont give the athlete any chance in hell of making thier case no matter what the relevant facts are.

Even if he is stripped of the title, he'll get it right back as soon as he has a shot. That man is a pure BEAST.

It would depend on BJ's conditioning (assuming he gets past this next bout). But, it always depends on BJ's conditioning, I suppose. He handled greater wrestlers than Sherk (Hughes/GSP) at 170, and 155 is a better weight for him. However, that is assuming he will win the interim title and be prepared for either fight. I will assume he won't, and would bet on Sherk.
The CSAC screwed this hard though. Sherk independently tested the joint formula from Xyience as Norris mentioned, which came back as a false positive. I believe he also passed a polygraph did he not? Whether or not he actually used steroids, the case evidence does not corroborate with that. If it does not fit, you must acquit.

No, but it was done to show the propensity of 'OTC' supplements to cause false positives. I think it was initially done to show the imperfection in the CSAC's methods, and how horribly unreliable they are.
