That's what happens when you fall in with the wrong crowd.

My first thought as well - guess we'll just have to wait and see before passing judgment

You're telling me I don't get to see an exciting Shields fight for at least 6 months!? What a bummer.

But in all seriousness, I don't mind. I'm gonna go on a stretch here and say that he is the most boring fighter on the roster. If anyone can think of a more boring fighter, let me know.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Don't think it was a PED, Sonnen and Overeem both got a year, Feijao got a year, everyone who gets popped for PED's or over doing their TRT always gets a year.

It was probably pot, he was moving up in weight so I'd be surprised if it was something to help the weight come off.

Yeah - either weed or a diuretic (Which is used for weight-cutting and/or masking anabolic substances in your system)

Shields isn't the most exciting fighter in the UFC, but I don't consider him that boring either. He grapples intelligently, which is something I always like watching because I feel I learn from it, even if all I'm getting is tools with which to evaluate other grappling performances. To me he's a much more interesting fighter than guys like Chris Leben, who can hit hard and take a punch, but show you little to learn from.
