This is just turning into a witch hunt, the guy cheated and got caught but multiple time cheats and people who have done worse have all been forgiven once the suspension was served. This is blatantly an attack against Sonnen because there is no precedent where they done this to anyone else.
The same commission that's doing this to Sonnen, didn't welcome a multiple time steroid cheat in Barnett back once his suspension was over.
The guy cheated.
He got banned/suspended.
Suspenssion is over!!!
And now...another athletic comission suspends him?! Because..."Sonnen may
have perjured ...."
That's one of the *stupidest* arguments i've ever heard.
What a bunch of retards!
This whole situation smells like *politics*.
Who is the other athletic commission who suspended him? The CSAC suspended him after the fight with Silva, and now the CSAC is suspending him again.
The NSAC hasn't suspended him, they just said he'd need to answer questions at a hearing to get a fight license, and the last hearing was cancelled because his probation wouldn't allow him to go to Nevada while some big event was going on.
Since when is suspending someone's license pending a review of a potential crime retarded? That happens all the time in jobs all over the country.
If a doctor/lawyer/anything gov. regulated gives testimony to a licensing board in a disciplinary hearing, then it comes out that some of his testimony was false, do you think the licensing board would just shrug and say, "Eh, suspension over. We'll let it go?"
Wow, I didn't know he was under oath.
I watched about half an hour of the hearing. He was sworn in right before he started testifying.
And I didn't know anyone had actual proof that Chael lied.
He's admitted he never told Kizer about the TRT.
Plus I find it highly suspicious that the UFC's doctors knew of his condition and the commission supposedly didn't. How is that even possible?
It depends what the UFC's doctors' roles are. But if they ever examine the fighters, there's very little chance they act as liaisons between commissions and fighters.
