One of the great hosts on Fox Sports Skip and Undisputed, Shannon Sharpe has recently made a big decision. He shared that he is leaving the popular sports talk show, Undisputed.

The discord between Sharpe and Bayless had been brewing for some time, particularly after an on-air clash over Damar Hamlin’s injury. However, it was Skip Bayless’ controversial tweet about Hamlin’s injury that pushed Sharpe to his breaking point. 

After this tweet, Sharpe didn’t appear on the show the next day which they co-host. It led many fans to wonder why he suddenly didn’t appear. 

The next day, he came to the Undisputed desk. In a passionate monologue, he expressed his disagreement with Bayless’s tweet and hoped Bayless would reconsider his words. He stated, “Skip tweeted something and although I disagree with the tweet, and hopefully, Skip will take it down…”

However, standing firm in his stance interrupted and declared he said, “Time out — I’m not going to take it down because I stand by what I tweeted.” This exchange ignited a brief back-and-forth between the two before Sharpe redirected the conversation to the show’s moderator, signaling his desire to move forward with the episode. 

While it’s very saddening for the fans to say goodbye to one of the best hosts, he will always be remembered for his engaging debates and how he stood up for his stance. Fans can’t wait to see what new path Sharpe will pursue and will fully support him in the next chapter of his illustrious career.
