Gutted, I really like Sonnen but he will lose a lot of face over this. I dont think we will ever get to see Silva v Sonnen II.

He's been a suspect ever since he started destroying everybody . Can't say I'm surprised, but what will happen with the rematch now ?

I'm not defending the man, but Chael has been actively "destroying" people for 4 years. People seem to forget that Chael manhandled Paulo, arguably the best middleweight at the time, with relative ease until he got caught in similar fashion in their first bout. It just seems a bit premature to base the best years of his career and his success on drugs.

I also want to make mention that this is the CSAC, which is a tarnished organization within itself when dealing with positive drug tests.

I'm very curious as to what drug he took. He's wrong regardless, but I'd be curious to see if it was to recover from an injury or if it was to boost his strength. It makes no sense why he would do this...especially given that he had no problems taking down a much bigger Nate Marquardt with ease.

I almost **** myself when I read this first on Cagepotato. Sonnen talked all that trash for nothing. I really hope Dana and the boys revoke the imeadiate title shot for Sonnen!

EDT: ?Has anyone seen a quote from Zuffa yet on the matter at hand

I had my suspicions for various reasons, but I still have to admit it's disappointing for ANY fighter to test positive. One of the better fights of the year now marred by controversy. Certainly is becoming a trend in MMA.

Agreed. I'm not jumping to any conclusions yet. Seems like these problems always pop up in California. Didn't Sherk have the same problem with the CSAC?

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.
