After failing two random drug tests administered by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC), the UFC and FOX Sports 1 have officially decided to terminate their broadcasting services agreements with Chael Sonnen, who previously served has their main analyst alongside Kenny Florian, Rashad Evans, Dominic Cruz, and Daniel Cormier.

A joint statement was released late Monday night:

The UFC and FOX Sports organizations announced today the termination of their respective broadcasting services agreements with analyst Chael Sonnen. This decision comes in light of Sonnen failing a second test conducted by the Nevada Athletic Commission for banned substances in June. Sonnen was previously under temporary suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission for failing an initial test conducted in May.

Since his termination, Sonnen hasn’t made a public comment yet on the shocking situation, but his case is expected to be evaluated by NAC on July 23, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
