According to a report from Jeremy Botter, former UFC title contender Chael Sonnen could face up to a $250,000 fine per failed drug test is he competes at Metamoris 4 on August 9.
Sonnen is currently booked to meet Andre Galvao in the featured attraction. The retired MMA fighter failed multiple drug tests earlier this year and subsequently left the sport.
However, the Nevada Athletic Commission still had him appear before the board during a meeting and suspended Sonnen from competing in MMA events. Sonnen’s camp has hired a lawyer, according to Botter, and plans to fight the possible charge.
