And just like that
Following a very public and recent drug testing failure, his second in just a few months, Chael Sonnen has been released by the UFC and his job as a FOX analyst.
In a joint release the UFC and FOX stated the following:
The UFC and FOX Sports organizations announced today the termination of their respective broadcasting services agreements with analyst Chael Sonnen. This decision comes in light of Sonnen failing a second test conducted by the Nevada Athletic Commission for banned substances in June. Sonnen was previously under temporary suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission for failing an initial test conducted in May.
