Jake Shields Admits To Using PED’s In Public Statement Released Today | UFC NEWS

Authentic Sports Management today issued the following statement on behalf of UFC athlete Jake Shields:

“To my friends, fans and the UFC,

Prior to my professional bout at UFC 150 in Denver, Colorado, I used a substance prohibited by Colorado Boxing Commission rules.

This was a mistake that I fully regret. I have shared this issue with my family and the UFC and I have apologized to them and now I also apologize to you, the fans. I promise this will never occur again in my fighting career.

I accept the Boxing Commission’s decision for a six-month suspension, which will expire in February. I ask that you accept my apology. I will be back fighting soon, and hope that the fans of MMA will support me until that time.”

    No where does in his statement does Shields say took PED’s just that a banned substance. Forrest admitted to taking Xanax and received a suspension. A “banned substance” isn’t always performance enhancing. Im not even a Shields fan but this is worse than tabloids.
