    This is exactly the reason I always thought he could make a huge splash in the UFC. To me, he's a better version of Maia for the reasons you mentioned and also he's just a better all around athlete (in terms of speed and explosiveness), has a longer reach and more size.

    Ed Herman feels that Jake Shields tested positive for performance enhancing drug - Bloody Elbow

    I think Colorado is one of the HIPAA privacy states where they weren't allowed to release what he tested positive for. I'm pretty sure it was for some type of performance enhancing substance, just by looking at his physique going in to the fight. He looked pretty puffed up and exhibited the common signs. As an athlete, you can recognize those signs. I can't guarantee it, but I'm pretty positive that it was for some kind of performance enhancing drug. If it really was for marijuana, it's a lot easier for a guy to come right out and say, 'I smoked a joint, sorry.' You get a little less criticism that way than if you cheated and used a performance enhancer.

    Pretty sure Gil was ranked way above BJ when BJ didn't want to fight for the LW title.

    We'll see when he is in the UFC.

    I tried reading this sentence in one shot, but ran out of breath.

    Good for Herman. Just hope that positive attitude can carry over to a positive performance/outcome for him.
