Sonnen to appear in front of NSAC later this month
Controversial UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen has a date with the Nevada State Athletic Commission on April 27.
MMAjunkie.com confirmed the news earlier today with NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer.
Sonnen is looking to receive his fighter’s license to compete in the state again, along with his cornerman’s license. The second license would make him eligible to coach the next season of “The Ultimate Fighter” opposite fellow brash 185 lb. fighter Michael Bisping.
The former top contender last competed at UFC 117, when he was submitted in the fifth round of his championship bout against title-holder Anderson Silva. Following the loss, Sonnen tested positive for steroids and was then suspended for six months by the California State Athletic Commission. He also found himself in legal trouble regarding money laundering, but that has been resolved.
