Chael Sonnen Says Wanderlei Silva Out of UFC 175 For Refusing a Drug Test
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.28.2014

Chael Sonnen spoke during Wednesday's episode of UFC Tonight (via MMAjunkie) about his opponent for UFC 175 changing from Wanderlei Silva to Vitor Belfort. Check out the highlights:

On why Silva is out of the fight: "Wanderlei has operated his entire career under the shadow of suspicion that he was using performance-enhancing drugs. However, he has never failed a drug test. So we don't speculate on those types of things. That clean record came to a screeching halt on Saturday night. He refused to take the test, and as you know, a refusal is equal in the eyes of the commission to a failure. He ran from the test. I don't mean that figuratively. I mean, they came to his gym and he literally ran. He goes out a side door, they come after him saying his name. I have not spoken to the athletic commission in Nevada, so here I am going to speculate that they will revoke his license and perhaps his career with the UFC will be done."

On facing Belfort: "The stakes are up. I am now fighting in a No. 1 contenders match. The winner of my bout will take on the winner of Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida."
