Jake Shields Victory Over Herman Ruled A No Contest Following Failed Drug Test | UFC NEWS

Jake Shields win at UFC 150 now ruled a no-contest!

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies’ boxing commission confirms a six-month suspension for Jake Shields, who announced this past Friday that he tested positive for a banned substance.

Jake Shields defeated Ed Herman at UFC 150 on Aug. 11, 2012 in his return to the middleweight division. His win has now been changed to a no-contest and Shields was fined $5000 for violating Colorado statutes on prohibited substances. He also is suspended for six months retroactive to Aug. 11, 2012.

“This was a mistake that I fully regret,” Shields said in a prepared statement this past week. “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.”

    Yet another on the long list of “talented” hopefuls that the UFC brings in only to not pan out. Very unfortunate since I think the UFC could use a BJJ specialist with success in the division. Shields especially has been an utter disappointment

  7. Mike D says:

    Since everyone else ” passed ” testing still has a ways to go . Les than 10 % of top level athletes in ANY sport including tennis is natural . Sorry to disappoint anyone . HGH, IGF and on n on .

    Sheilds should have stayed in Strikeforce. If someone would have asked me a week ago if I thought Sheilds was a CHEATER I probabaly would hava said i doubt it because its OBVIOUS Diaz brothers, Melendez arn’t JUICERS. I bet Sheilds picked up the idea to CHEAT/JUICE when he was training down in south Florida while back.
