Sonnen deserves to be made an example of, he continuously lies to the media now he has taken it a step further, lying to the commission while he is under oath. How stupid can you possibly be?

Be a man and come clean, you not only get back to making a lot of money faster, but you look better in the public's eye. Take Silva for example, he used steroids and spoke honestly in front of the commish and was somewhat rewarded for it.

I honestly don't care if I ever see Sonnen back inside the ring, he is all mouth and cant backup any of his talking.

Fowlkes needs to stop using the "we", as if everyone who reads the article is as dumb as he was. Some of us didnt swallow Chael's shit wholesale. We saw through it and said the stuff Ben's saying FROM THE BEGINNING.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

I'll give you that mate. I did not like Chael's antics from the beginning, he has never been good for the sport :/

I read it. What I got from it is the CSAC is essentially trying to blackball Chael by asking other commissions to talk to them before they issue him a license.

Commissions communicating and asking for consensus is nothing new- and even more appropriate in this particular case, where Chael actually lied and attempted to play one commission against another to benefit himself.

Fair enough. They talked to each other and caught him in the lie. Throw down the punishment, not an indefinate suspension. I'd be more content with them saying he has a lifetime ban in Nevada and California than a suspension that sounds like a fundraiser more than a decision.

This sounds just like the CASC running to their usual efficiancy, they screwed Sherk over and now Sonnen is being suspended because they have a HUNCH he lied?

This is good news for Bisping....he would have been taken down relentlessly if these two had faced off.
