You didn't really think Chael Sonnen was going to take all this without putting up a fight, did you?
From Sonnen's manager Mike Roberts, via MMA Fighting:
"It is our policy not to comment on pending actions by the Athletic Commission. Chael is consulting with his legal advisors and physicians and will have a statement in the near future. Chael will file an appeal with the CSAC and looks forward to working with the Commission to resolve this matter."
Mr. Sonnen is currently starring down the barrel of a one-year suspension plus a $2,500 fine, assuredly nixing the rematch with Anderson Silva. Chael's appeal to the California State Athletic Commission will be heard on December 2 in Sacramento.
That gives the brash-talking middleweight approximately two and half months to work up a believable defense, certainly no small task. Any thoughts on the angle he'll take to try and save his career?
