A few days ago, it was revealed that Jake Shields failed his UFC 150 drug test after his victory over Ed Herman in what was the former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion's return to 185 pounds back on Aug. 11, 2012 in Denver, Colorado.
Rather than making excuses, Shields admitted to the transgression via his management team, apologizing to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and his fans while accepting the six-month suspension handed down to him by the Colorado Boxing Commission.
Now, MMA Fighting brings word that the Cesar Gracie fighter was also fined $5,675, which includes a 10-percent ‘additional surcharge' by the Executive Director of Department of Regulatory Agencies, according to the report.
Furthermore, Shields' win over "Short Fuse" has been overturned to a no-contest (NC).
It's good news for Herman, who keeps his three fight win streak intact, while Shields drops to a record of 2-2-1 with the UFC following a 15-fight win streak before making a successful Octagon debut against Martin Kampmann back at UFC 121 in 2010, which earned him a title shot against Georges St. Pierre.
Despite these new revelations, it's still not clear what Jake tested positive for. The proud Vegan is eligible to return to action in February of 2013.
How about it Maniacs, is a rematch between Shields and Herman in order? Or do you have someone else in mind for Shields' return?
