Chael Sonnen has continually stated that he will be able to compete next weekend at UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen in Boston.
However, that will be determined Thursday when Sonnen heads in front of the Massachusetts State Boxing Commission to decide his fate.
Sonnen, according to a report by MMAjunkie.com, has come under fire by several union-led complaints in regards to keeping him off the August 17 card.
Previously, Sonnen has been granted an exemption to use testosterone. He is planning to move back to middleweight following the main event fight with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
