Chael Sonnen Hearing

Last month the NSAC suspended Chael Sonnen for two years after two failed drug tests. However the NSAC never barred Sonnen from competing in his grappling match against Andre Galvao at Metamoris 4 later this month.

Today news has surfaced that the NSAC is attempting to block Chael Sonnen from competing in his headlining match at Metamoris 4, and is threatening to fine Sonnen should he compete.

Bleacher Report lead MMA writer Jeremy Botter broke the news:

“Multiple sources confirm NSAC has threatened to fine Sonnen $250,000 per failed drug test violation if he competes at Metamoris. Sonnen camp’s contention is that grappling is not fighting and suspension shouldn’t cover it. Sonnen has hired Vegas lawyer Ross Goodman to represent him in the case.”

Ralek Gracie was unaware of the situation until it was brought up to him by Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com
