    Meltzer's piece on this whole Chael issue is pretty spot on IMO:

    I think he CAN use whatever he wants for right now.

    However, I think (and correct me if I'm wrong) he would be subject to testing as soon as he signed a bout agreement. Moreover, I think most AC's would refuse him a license until they had actually heard from him regarding this test failure.

    What would be the process if Sonnen wanted to come out of retirement and get relicensed?

    I assume he can't just use whatever he wants now, come out of retirement in a year, sign a bout agreement, avoid Nevada and their random tests and apply for a licence in a different state a week or two before the fight when he will piss clean?

    I really take the Sonny from A Bronx Tale approach with regards to rooting for someone. For MMA, I just want to see highly skilled fighters fight, I'm not all too invested in anyone anymore. Anyone that I once was are past their prime, retired, or dead. I was at UFC 101 when Anderson tooled Forrest. I couldn't have been more ashamed of the fucking crowd around me screaming "speak English" after Anderson won and spoke to the crowd. The motherfucker was thanking people for coming out and your telling him to fuckoff? That's the type of "murika fuck yeah" "love it the same way I do or get out" bullshit that is downright embarrassing.

    Back on topic: I really think this retirement to pursue being a good father/husband is garbage. Chael is a competitor and has been doing so for so long, and I just have the completely unsubstantiated feeling that he wanted to go a few more years and couldn't juice up anymore so then he retired and is using the family angle to look good. I did enjoy him fighting and even though his gift of gab was better than throwing fisties, I do sincerely hope he kills it in whatever he finds himself doing after MMA.

    I get what Riv is saying. He doesn't like racism, or assholes that root for Americans just cause "Merica" (for the record, I hate that shit, it's America, taking a letter off doesn't make it funny, or cool, it's disrespectful). I am not racist, but I am proud of my freedom, and the people who fought/fight to protect them. I do support our citizens over others. That isn't to say I hate other people, or think I'm better than them. I've always liked Riv, but maybe I would fit in his description, and maybe I wouldn't. I would not be offended either way, as I freely admit my feelings about this country, and it's citizens.

    Video: Dana White sounds off (again) on TRT, Sonnen, Belfort, Wanderlei Silva
    http://mmajunkie.com/2014/06/video-d...anderlei-silva



    To hear Dana shitting on Wanderlei and praising Sonnen so much is a bit hard to take. They basically both failed a drug test yet Dana makes Wanderlei sound so much worse.
