Chael Sonnen

– 24-11-1 MMA/ 3-2 UFC Record

– Won 3 of last 4 Fights

– Notable Wins: Nate Marquardt, Dan Miller, Yushin Okami

Excerpt from MMA Junkie:

 

Chael Sonnen, who fell just short of dethroning longtime UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva at this past month’s UFC 117 event, failed his post-fight drug screening likely due to performance-enhancing drugs.

That’s according to California State Athletic Commission Executive Officer George Dodd, who today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the failed test was due to a banned performance-enhancer. Sonnen could not immediately be reached for comment.
