Chael Sonnen Fails UFC 117 Drug Test

Reports from various sources have confirmed that middleweight title contender, Chael Sonnen, failed a post fight drug test at UFC 117 after coming within two minutes of beating champion, Anderson Silva. Sherdog.com reported that George Dodd, executive officer of the California State Athletic Comission, informed Sonnen of the results today.

Online forums have long speculated that Sonnen was using some sort of steroid after noticing an increase in “backne” since UFC 104. Details of what kind of drug was used have yet to be released, but Dodd did confirm that all participants of UFC 117 tested negative for drugs such as cocaine and marijuana. This information leads us to believe that Sonnen used a performance-enhancing-drug.

Sonnen was expected to fight Silva in a rematch, but will most likely face a lengthy layoff from fighting.

Stay tuned as we bring you more details on the story.
