Jake Shields Fight with Ed Herman At UFC 150 Overturned and Ruled No Contest


Jake Shields‘ six-month suspension for the use of a banned substance has now also resulted in his bout with Ed Herman at UFC 150 being overturned and ruled a no-contest.

Officials from the Colorado Boxing Commission confirmed the news to MMAWeekly.com on Monday.

Shields revealed the suspension last week, stating that he had received a six-month suspension as a result of his use of a “banned substance.” The substance that Shields ingested was not revealed, and due to medical laws in Colorado, the commission is unable to disclose that information as well.

Due to the infraction and the laws upheld in the state, Shields’ fight with Herman will now be ruled a no contest.

In addition to the fight being overturned, Shields will pay a fine of $5,675 for the infraction.

Shields will be eligible to fight again and apply for a fight license after Feb. 11, 2013.
