This one was kept quiet.

Bloody Elbow ‏@BloodyElbow
Dana White says Shogun vs. Gustafsson winner in position for a title shot.

Bloody Elbow ‏@BloodyElbow
Jake Shields suspended for six months following positive test after UFC 150. The Colorado State Athletic Commission officially overturned the fight and made it a no contest, and fined Shields in addition to his suspension.

What a ****ing joke. So is the Griffin fight off?

The season better at least be heavyweights so there's something to watch. If it's anything but HWs I won't watch. And even if it is, just the fights.

Ridiculous. Completely ridiculous.

Pure money/ratings grab. Turning in to a sideshow. But yeah, if he wants ratings may as well go all out and make it heavyweights at least.

TUF is currently not drawing well in the ratings so the UFC is getting a little desperate to get the rating back up. Sonnen does not deserve a title shot, especially at 205, where he hasn't fought in 7 years and his last fight at that weight class was a loss. This will also make for a long layoff for Sonnen too.

Dana must be ****ting his pants these days, as he's turning the UFC into a sham.

Ridiculous.
