Sean Sherk has turned down a proposed lightweight bout against Clay Guida for UFC’s debut on Versus on March 21 at the Odeum Colorado in Broomfield, Colo.

FiveOuncesofPain.com was the first to report on the scratched bout on Friday.

Monte Cox, Sherk’s manager, told Sherdog.com on Friday that the Minnesotan wrestler had been offered the bout, but couldn’t accept it due to a lingering injury. Cox would not elaborate on the injury and did not have timetable for Sherk’s return.

The 36-year-old former UFC lightweight champion has withdrawn from his last two UFC engagements. Sherk was forced to pull out of a Jan. 2 bout against Jim Miller at UFC 108 when he cut his forehead three weeks out from the event and needed multiple stitches.

Sherk also bowed out of a bout against Gleison Tibau at UFC 104 last October when he suffered a “Grade II AC separation” in his right shoulder while rolling with a training partner. Guida, who was submitted by Kenny Florian at UFC 107 last December in Memphis, Tenn., is expected to receive a new opponent.
