Chael Sonnen took the spotlight away from a live UFC card Saturday night, as news broke that he failed a second pre-fight drug test recently.
Twitter had plenty to say about it, including a perfectly-timed comment from recent Ultimate Fighter competitor Cathal Pendred.

The UFC will address the Chael Sonnen situation in the post-fight press conference. Dana White isn’t here. It’ll just be a statement.

Chael Sonnen taught a lot of fighters how to build a career. Seems like he's teaching them how to tarnish it now.

I miss Keith Kizer. At least he notified everybody publicly when there was a failed test after the result came back #UFC
