Drug tests were conducted after the fight on both Sonnen and Silva and the results were positive on Sonnen. His testosterone levels were high 16.9:1 on T/E ratio which normally should be 4:1 for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) usage. Sonnen was fined and suspended by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) as the tests clearly indicated that he used steroids. Even though Sonnen appealed the decision, stating that he had hypogonadism (reduction or absence of hormone secretion) for which he was taking TRT for medication. But, his suspension was overruled, as he did not file for the TRT exemption, and he wasn’t permitted to use testosterone and, therefore, was convicted for doping.
Sonnen was again tested in 2014, but he failed as he had high levels of HCG, Anastrozole, and Clomiophene. The initial press release did not mention clearly what were his testosterone levels.
But, the favorite question is probably to know, what steroid did Chael Sonnen use besides the ones mentioned SERMs and Arimidex. Was he bluffing on his TRT medication or was it cycle he was following as a diet? As of now, we are aware that he used testosterone injections, so let’s work out his steroid cycle. We will be putting together two cycles, one that he was tested positive on, and the other one which is a presumption that he might be using these compounds.
