Actually, from the sounds of it, Sherk may win his appeal. I won't be surprised either way. But its up in the air until the appeal is heard.

He said maybe a combination of supplements he was taking reacted together to give a false positive. Sherk's body is his temple. He isn't just a fighter, he's a dietitian and workaholic. I can almost
believe him when he says he didn't take anything.
He doesn't even to bars cause of the smoke...dude is ridiculous about what goes in his body.
The testing the NSAC has is lame anyways. Testing for Nandrolone in the body is warped. Nandrolone metabolite is a naturally occurring substance in the body, but the NSAC sets a limit on what level you can test at. The level is 2ng/mL and Sherk tested at 12ng/mL.
Some athletes who have admitted to doping have tested as high as 94ng/mL. Athletic performance tests have shown it isn't unlikely to test anywhere up 10ng/mL without doping.
So maybe Sherk had a higher occurrence of naturally produced Nanrolone in his system? Who knows.
All I know is he passed his lie detector test.
Personally, I would hope he didn't do the roids. Its just bad for the sport. As for my personal opinion, I think he did it. I'm just trying to show you the testing on Nandrolone is really, really, really flawed.
