The most disappointing UFC news of the year: Sonnen fails drug test

CSAC: Sonnen Positive for PEDs at UFC 117

According to California State Athletic Commission Executive Officer George Dodd, Chael Sonnen has been notified that he failed post-fight drug screening following his loss to Anderson Silva at UFC 117, which was held Aug. 7 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif.

“[Sonnen] received his notice yesterday,” Dodd told shortly after the Shane Mosley-Sergio Mora boxing match ended Saturday night in Los Angeles.

Unless this report is completely bogus, it's the most disappointing UFC news all year, as it destroys any chance of a Sonnen-Anderson Silva rematch, and it completely taints Sonnen's performance during his match.

Not to mention, it makes Sonnen's comments about Lance Armstrong seem even more ridiculous.

What is kind of amusing, however, is that this news broke late last night, yet has been on this messageboard since Tuesday. How about that?

Assuming any of this is true, of course.
