It's actually not. This wasn't a court case, it was a hearing in front a panel of commission members who are not judges in the legal sense. There are no rules about double jeopardy here, in fact they could simply extend his suspension without even meeting with him again if they feel like it.

Read page 22 of this thread. Not only is he even now not off the hook (the original suspension was 12 months with a $2500 fine, it was reduced to six months with a $2500 fine, that's not off the hook) Keith Kizer doesn't seem too thrilled about Chael lying to the CSAC and inventing conversations with him in order to help his case. Even if the CSAC stands by and does nothing about this blatant bullshitting, Keith himself said Chael is going to have to explain himself in person to the NSAC if he wants to be licensed again to fight in Nevada. Hopefully Keith makes an example here.

If Mr. Kizer wants to play hardball chael will just take his MW belt on a world tour and Nevada will never see it again.

Whilst I enjoy some Chael goodness on the worst of days... I'm still confused. He *won* from the sounds of it, but that also the people assigned to prove him guilty were completely incompetent? Is that right?

So, the question as to whether he knowingly cheated or not is still up in the air.

Very bitter sweet for me. I like Sonnen. I want to see him fight some more. I was completely convinced he wouldn't cheat. I stayed quiet and waited for the truth.

Instead we get incompetence and a bunch of awful excuses from Sonnen as to why he didn't disclose?

Now I'm left feeling like he did indeed knowingly cheat. This is not a victory as far as im concerned. Chael is a shady motherfooker.

I was 100% sure that he cheated and not only since the Silva fight. Probably since 08 I guess.. before the Okami fight.

But so do many fighters in the UFC. Nothing special in such a tremendous high performance sport.

chael was just one of the unlucky guys out there.. like Sherk as well.


A high level of Testosterone means nothing else then a super human lung.

I am happy with the result overall! Could have been way worse for him.

OK, as long as the elevations of test are not above normal then he is not taking enough to give him a unfair advantage??
This is the case right?
