Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Bloodyelbow.com managing editor Brent Brookhouse.
Chael Sonnen's second failed drug test in a matter of weeks, this time for HGH and EPO, has ended his run with the UFC and Fox Sports. Breen and Brookhouse take a look back at the bizarre and sensational circus that Sonnen commandeered for the last five years under Zuffa employ, from his unpredictable emergence as an elite fighter and pay-per-view draw, his role in the sport's testosterone replacement therapy saga and his legal indiscretions outside of MMA. The pair also reflect on how long Sonnen will really be on the outs with the UFC and Fox and why his history of lawlessness is particular unique.
Breen and Brookhouse also consider other kinds of scandals that could ensnare MMA fighters in the future, which UFC fighter is most likely to become a “catfishing” victim and the all-time craziest Sonnen excuses and one-liners.
