Chael Sonnen Fails Drug Test, For Womens Medicine?




News just broke about Chael Sonnen failing a random drug test which has caused the UFC to pull him from UFC 175 this July.

There are two drugs that were involved according to reports: Anastrozole and Clomiphene.

If you first do a Google search on these substances you will see they appear to be for women. Which makes it seem odd as to why Chael Sonnen would use them.

However change your Google search to the name followed by 'for men' and you will discover more.

They have both been proven to increase testosterone levels in men. It would appear Chael Sonnen was working to go around the new TRT ban by using alternatives. Which he has mentioned somewhat on the air before (the fact that he may look for alternatives).

My question is were the substances banned? Were the levels too high? I'm sure details will emerge soon enough. This will make for a great MMA Beat episode, looking forward to it gentlemen.

It will be interesting to see how Sonnen handles the PR repair work that now needs to commence.

Let me know what you think in the comment section below.
