Last month, Chael Sonnen put on the performance of his life, losing to Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. Sonnen dominated Silva in a way that no one has ever done before, until he was caught by a submission in the 5th round.
Now according to The Calfornia State Athletic Commission and Sherdog, Sonnen has tested positive for performance enhancing drugs after a test following his fight last month.
This obviously puts the Silva vs. Sonnen rematch in February in jeopardy, especially if Sonnen gets a year suspension. It's likely that the winner of Belfort/Okami in November will get the title shot now early in 2011.
