CSAC Bans Chael Sonnen for One Year
With Chael Sonnen blowing up his drug test, the CSAC has suspended his license to fight for one year. And in case he fails his appeal, Belfort could take the center stage for him.
After a back wrong horse dope test, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has prohibited Chael Sonnen from fighting for one year. The fighter was promulgated last week of his test results at UFC 117, and now has 30 days to appeal. According to a statement from CSAC:

“The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has suspended the license of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Chael Sonnen, after Sonnen tested positive for steroids, a banned substance.
“A sample from Sonnen’s August 6 drug test came back with a high T/E (testosterone-to-oestrogen) level, which is indicative of anabolic steroid use. CSAC learned of the results September 2 and ordered a second test, which also came back positive for steroid use. CSAC received test results from the second sample on September 14 and suspended Sonnen two days later. He is suspended for one year. Sonnen has 30 days to appeal the decision.”
