Sherk Scratched from “UFC on Versus 1″

The Sean Sherk vs. Clay Guida bout that was tentatively scheduled for “UFC on Versus 1” has been scratched. Sherk was removed from the bout for undisclosed reasons.

Taking Sherk’s place will be Shannon Gugerty, who last appeared at UFC 105 in November with loss to Terry Etim.

Both Guida and Gugerty have verbally agreed to the bout but have yet to sign bout agreements. “UFC on Versus 1” is tentatively slated to take place on Mar. 21 in Broomfield, Colorado, and will be headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Brandon Vera and Jon Jones.
