STATEMENT FROM JAKE SHIELDS

 

 

 

Deerfield Beach, FL - Authentic Sports Management today issued the following statement on behalf of UFC athlete Jake Shields:

 

 

"To my friends, fans and the UFC,

 

Prior to my professional bout at UFC 150 in Denver, Colorado, I used a substance prohibited by Colorado Boxing Commission rules.

 

This was a mistake that I fully regret. 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."

Diaz sabotaged Shields. Proof below:

In this re-enactment, Diaz is played by Method Man. Shields, the victim, is played by Redman.
