The following is an official statement from UFC regarding Chael Sonnen’s second NSAC drug test failure:

“We were made aware that a second random test, conducted earlier this month, resulted in a positive test for additional banned substances. Chael wil have the opportunity to appear in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission next month, and through a statement released to the media tonight, he’s pledged to cooperate. Our stance on the subject remains absolutely the same. We support the commission and we will continue to ensure that all UFC competitors compete on an even playing field, free of performance-enhancing drugs and banned substances.”
