View Full Version : CSAC votes to uphold Sonnen's suspension.

One-time UFC middleweight title contender Chael Sonnen will not be competing in the octagon anytime soon.

The California State Athletic Commission today ruled to uphold Sonnen's indefinite suspension, citing both a recent federal money-laundering conviction, as well as some questionable testimony following a positive result in a post-UFC 117 drug screen.

The CSAC made their ruling during today's special meeting, which took place at the Ronald Reagan State Office Building in Los Angeles. The motion passed with a vote of 4-1.

Sonnen can not reapply for a license before June 29, 2012. Should he elect to do so, he'll have to once again appear before the CSAC.

This is as close as real life gets to a troll getting banned from a forum.

Well, Sonnen deserves to be punished.

What sucks is that we won't see a Silva-Sonnen rematch for awhile, if at all.

Rumor is that if things don't go his way on Thursday that he won't be able to apply for a license until June 2012...

Brutal. Not a fan of Sonnen, but damn.
