According to a report by, the Nevada Athletic Commission has fined Sonnen up to $250,000 for his failed drug tests. Sonnen retired from MMA following news of the second such results.

A total of five banned substances were found in his system during two tests, and the NAC has given Sonnen 20 days to respond to the matter and plan an appeal.
