    Pretty sure I remember him stating after a previous failed test that if all they had found was elevated testosterone the test didn't work properly as he was taking way more than that, sounds like he is gonna be made to eat his own words!

    I hope I'm wrong.

    I hope the dead stay buried.

    I would like to think if he did, he'd have to submit to several drug tests for a fight license (like Vitor) and would be randomly drug tested throughout the rest of his career regardless if he had a fight scheduled or not.

    Of course I've been known to think incorrectly about a ton of topics.

    I don't see this happening. I think the UFC would do it. I don't think Sonnen will come back with out 'extra help' and won't risk being busted another time.

    In all sincerity, I didn't know you were into sonnen, and I wasn't referring to you. I know people off board who think he can literally do no wrong, and I was more specifically referring to them, and didn't have anyone specific here in mind.




    I actually can't tell you anyone on the board who is a big sonnen fan. It's like I've selectively removed it from my understanding. Probably because it would make it more difficult for me to respect them.

    I'm pretty real about his stupid antics even though I am a big fan. I defended him after the first failed test after the first silva fight but then picked up on his scuminess shortly after.

    Meh, I don't like the commentary on Fox across the board. Maybe it's just not my thing but always feels light, dull, and forced. Sonnen in or out isn't changing that for me.

    Chael Sonnen 'accepts responsibility' for second drug test failure
    http://www.mmafighting.com/2014/7/9/...g-test-failure
    On Tuesday, Sonnen's lawyer Jeff Meyer submitted his client's formal response to the NAC's First Amended Complaint for Disciplinary Action. Below is the most relevant excerpt from the response:

    "Mr. Sonnen does not dispute any of the factual allegations contained in the First Amended Complaint. Mr. Sonnen accepts responsibility for his actions and will comply with the Commission in the prompt resolution of this matter."

    Sonnen's case will heard at the NAC's July 23 hearing.
