    Default Chael Sonnen Fails Drug Test for UFC 117

    Sunday, September 19, 2010 - by Staff

    It appears Chael Sonnen?s immediate rematch with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is soon to be off the table. Sonnen reportedly has failed his post-fight drug screening from his fight with Silva at UFC 117 in Oakland, Calif., according to a report from Greg Savage of

    The report states that George Dodd, the California State Athletic Commission?s Executive Officer, told Saturday night after the Shane Mosley vs. Sergio Mora boxing match that, ?(Sonnen) received his notice yesterday,? regarding the positive test result.

    Dodd had indicated on Friday that all UFC 117 fighters had passed the testing for drugs of abuse (such as marijuana, cocaine, and the like), indicating the Sonnen likely tested positive for a performance enhancing substance.

    A suspension for performance enhancing substances in California typically draws a one-year duration. If Sonnen has tested positive, and receives such a suspension, it would obviously derail plans for the rematch, which was penciled in for the UFC?s annual Super Bowl weekend event. had not received independent verification of the report at the time of publication.

    has he commented yet?

    I wonder if he'll admit it or deny it.

    I assume he's guilty, but a lot of people complain that California is f'd up and that they even admit they get false positives.

    This can explain his recent surge. Filho wasn't himself so that was easy to understand, but wins over Marquart and Okami were impressive, as was this performance.

    In that case, I'm glad he lost.

    And for once...Chael stops talking. In this case it still speaks volumes.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
