The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies' Boxing Commission has issued UFC fighter Jake Shields a six-month suspension for using a prohibited substance prior to his fight at UFC 150, the fighter today announced.

Shields' reps at Authentic Sports Management emailed MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) a prepared statement from the fighter.

In it, Shields acknowledges to using a banned substance and accepting the commission's half-year suspension.

However, he didn't reveal what the substance was, and the commission hasn't specified what was detected in his post-fight drug test.A source told MMAjunkie.com the Association of Boxing Commissions' database currently doesn't list any information about Shields' failed test, though it'll likely be added soon...

no doubt it was miss mary jane.
hes BFF with Nick & Nate PLUS his dad just died a while back, a little herbal medicine probably found its way into little Jakey's head after a beer or two.

I hope they deem his boring ass win over Short Fuse a NC now.

I read it wrong and thought it was for being a banned substance, like some kind of sleep aid.

Got to respect Jake for being out in front of this one. I'm not a fan of his but I appreciate the honesty.

Everyone deserves a second chance.

for manning up.

I doubt it was a performance enhancer. Almost definitely it was pot or something similar.

So I'm not sure how it was supposed to "work."

I just can't understand why any athlete with SO MUCH to lose would ever risk being caught using any unauthorized substance of any kind and subsequently be forced "not to earn money" (by fighting) therefore jeopardizing what they have already worked so hard for...

Wow - even I had trouble reading my comment just now, lol, probably because I'm high
