You all may remember Josh Gross’ hamfisted attack against Dana White in the wake of the Sean Sherk / Hermes Franca steroid debacle. It seems so long ago … I’m actually surprised that it was a meer two and a half weeks ago. Well, one thing worth noting is that since that article hit the front page of Sherdog.com, there hasn’t been one UFC fighter interviewed on any of Sherdog’s many radio shows. In fact, the only Zuffa-signed fighters to appear on the Sherdog Radio network since July 20th have been WEC fighters Jeff Curran and Tiki Ghosn.
So this begs the question: has Dana White officially asked his fighters not to interact with Sherdog any more? While I doubt there’s a mandate carved in stone (yet), it wouldn’t surprise me to hear that Dana has sent word to his fighters ‘requesting’ they not support his “mortal enemies”.
Only time will tell, and this may merely be because no fucking UFC events = no UFC guests. But still … two and a half weeks with no UFC guys on any of the Sherdog radio shows? And I thought our radio show was having troubles!
