A loophole in Chael Sonnen's athletic career may be closing, with the threat of large fines looming if he competes at Metamoris 4.

I kinda look at it the other way. He fucked himself by repeatedly cheating and getting caught.

It's not a sport AC's regulate. So they really don't have a case in my mind. Do any of the other Competitors need to get approval? I must have woken up in Bizzaro world today, I'm taking both Bisping and Sonnen's sides.

I don't care either way. I jumped off the Sonnen bandwagon when he came up with that 'trying to start a family' bullshit.

Wow! Maybe they can fine him for teaching private classes as well.

This seems a little late of the part of the commission, you would think they would have threatened him a couple weeks ago with this. That said, Sonnen made a mountain of cash while cheating and now the bill arrives. He was a lay n pray fighter, now he's a pay to play fighter.

"BREAKING NEWS" Chael Sonnen fined $75,000 for exercising in public without NSAC approval.
