People throughout the MMA industry continue to discuss the news that Anderson Silva failed a drug test leading up to UFC 183, and now we’ve heard from his former rival, Chael Sonnen.
Of course, not only is Sonnen a fascinating person to hear from regarding all this, because, well, he’s Chael Sonnen, but because he’s fought Silva on two occasions, and yes…he’s also failed a few drug tests.
Sonnen recently appeared on TSN’s “Off the Record” to discuss Silva, who on Tuesday, we learned has allegedly tested positive for steroids. The former middleweight champ has denied taking any type of performance enhancing drug.
In the segment, which you can watch below, Sonnen calls on Silva to just come clean and admit taking PEDs, if he did, rather than attempt to fight the charges. The outspoken commentator and former contender noted that the renowned drug lab, which apparently conducted Silva’s test, will vigorously fight any attempt to discredit the facility.
Sonnen was defeated by Silva in 2010 and 2012, in what were two of the UFC’s biggest bouts ever.
