Chael Sonnen fails random drug test

http://espn.go.com/mma/story/_/id/11...t-ufc-175-bout

LAS VEGAS -- UFC light heavyweight Chael Sonnen has failed a random drug test in the state of Nevada and will not fight Vitor Belfort at UFC 175 on July 5.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission randomly tested Sonnen last month while he was in Las Vegas to attend a UFC news conference. Results confirmed the presence of two illegal substances, Anastrozole and Clomiphene.

NSAC chairman Francisco Aguilar confirmed the test results to ESPN.com on Tuesday.

UFC officials also acknowledged the situation.

"UFC officials acknowledge irregularities in a recent random test," the promotion stated. "Chael is planning on addressing the matter this afternoon."

Sonnen (28-14-1) is expected to discuss the test results on Fox, where he serves as a UFC analyst. The substances Sonnen tested postive for are classified as anti-estrogenic.

Anastrozole is used to treat early stages of breast cancer. Clomiphene is used in cases of female infertility.

Sonnen will likely face a suspension in the wake of the test. Sources indicate to ESPN.com he will not file an appeal.

Sonnen, 37, has stated he was diagnosed with hypogonadism in 2008, resulting in a low level of testosterone. He had been approved the use of testosterone-replacement-therapy (TRT) in his last six fights, twice in Nevada.

The NSAC banned TRT in combat sports in February, however, which forced Sonnen to abandon treatment. Shortly after the ban, Sonnen stated he would have to find alternative methods to raise his testosterone or retire.

"If (the ban) retires guys, then it retires guys," Sonnen said on UFC Tonight. "Rules are rules and the rules need to be followed.

"I've had to stop testosterone with the hope we can find a new way to gain results of upping testosterone to a healthy level. If it doesn't work, I may have to stop the sport and it's as simple as that."

Sonnen was originally scheduled to fight Wanderlei Silva at UFC 175, which takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, but Silva was pulled from the card last month when he refused to submit to a random NSAC test.

Belfort (24-10) is facing a licensing issue in Nevada as well. The Brazilian had also been approved the use of TRT in his last three fights, but has since discontinued use. He is currently scheduled to appear at an NSAC licensing hearing on June 17.

This is the second time Sonnen has technically failed a drug test. In August 2010, he tested positive for an elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio prior to a UFC middleweight title fight against Anderson Silva in Oakland. The California State Athletic Commission suspended Sonnen for one year.

Sonnen appealed the suspension in December 2010, during which he revealed his medical condition and admitted use of TRT. The sentence was reduced to six months.

In May 2011 the CSAC suspended Sonnen indefinitely on suspicions of perjury during that December appeal. That suspension officially ended on June 29, 2011.

I wonder if this is Matt Lindland's fault like last time?

Pretty sure those two drugs are used to not get bitch tits after you complete a cycle of testosterone. I had to take the 2nd one after my cycle of dianabol and test 250.

Anastrozole has been tested for reducing estrogens, including estradiol, in men. Excess estradiol in men can cause benign prostatic hyperplasia, gynecomastia, and symptoms of hypogonadism. It can also contribute to increased risk of stroke, heart attack, chronic inflammation, prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. Some athletes andbody builders use anastrozole as part of their steroid cycle to reduce and prevent symptoms of excess estrogen--gynecomastia, emotional lability and water retention. Study data suggests dosages of 0.5 mg to 1 mg a day reduce serum estradiol approx. 50% in men, which differs in postmenopausal women.

Clomifene (Clomid) is commonly used by male users to bind the estrogen receptors in their bodies, thereby blocking the effects of estrogen, such as gynecomastia. It also restores the body's natural production of testosterone. It is included on the World Anti-Doping Agency list of illegal doping agents in sport.

For fuck sakes I'm sick of these steroid cheaters. There should be a 2 year ban for getting caught the first time and a life time ban for getting caught a second time.

He's about as entertaining as having multiple wisdom tooth extractions.

No loss whatsoever.

Good. I hope he isn't liscenced in case he welches, ever, spare the nonsense of his hyping. It would be nice if he got back into real estate so I don't have to hear his corny contrived dribble from the sidelines he put himself on. He was able to bring some eyes to the Ufc at the expense sending mma back a step in legitimacy. He optimized being fake for attention, leveraging the results to be the poster boy for bad undeserving match ups. Nothing special and getting worse where it really matters. I'd like to say great but sonnens precedence is set, the imitators will follow... Fchale sonnen.
