UFC 150: Jake Shields Win over Ed Herman Overturned to No-Contest

Tim McTiernan@tmt2393Correspondent IOctober 15, 2012

This past week, Jake Shields said that he had tested positive for a banned substance and would be suspended for six months. Now, he has had his win over Ed Herman—incorrectly referred to as Dave Herman in the linked article—overturned to a no-contest.

Shields originally beat Herman by unanimous decision at UFC 150, making a successful middleweight return after a relatively unimpressive foray into the UFC welterweight division.

Now, Shields will have to deal with the six-month suspension as well as the no-contest on his record.

His suspension was retroactive to the date of UFC 150, August 11, so he will be eligible to return in mid-February.

In addition to his suspension, he will have to pay a fine of $5,675.

Five thousand dollars for the standard fine, plus he's also been ordered to pay a 10 percent "additional surcharge" by the Executive Director of the Department of Regulatory Agencies.

Finally, he has to pay an additional $175 for administrative costs. As of today, October 15, he has two weeks to pay those fines.
