I thought it was odd how the fight wasn't ruled a no contest, but it looks like it was.

Jake Shields win at UFC 150 now ruled a no-contest!

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies’ boxing commission confirms a six-month suspension for Jake Shields, who announced this past Friday that he tested positive for a banned substance.

Jake Shields defeated Ed Herman at UFC 150 on Aug. 11, 2012 in his return to the middleweight division. His win has now been changed to a no-contest and Shields was fined $5000 for violating Colorado statutes on prohibited substances. He also is suspended for six months retroactive to Aug. 11, 2012.

“This was a mistake that I fully regret,” Shields said in a prepared statement this past week. “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.”
I'm still curious to what it even was.
