SONNEN DONE: MMAJUNKIE.com's Erickson & Morgan reported both the UFC and Fox are "parting ways with recently retired fighter and on-air personality Chael Sonnen" following a pair of "failed random drug tests." Fox and UFC released a joint statement yesterday "not long after the news broke saying Sonnen’s time with the network was over." Sonnen had been co-hosting FS1's "UFC Tonight" weekly show for "most of its run." He has been an FS1 on-air presence "since the channel’s inception nearly a year ago." Sonnen also previously "did analyst work for the Fox family on the big network, as well as FUEL TV" (MMAJUNKIE.com, 6/30).
