Default Sonnen back in action

Josh Gross just reported on Twitter that Chael still has a chance to fight this year!

Heres the tweets, and it turns out the CSAC made yet another error.

"CSAC just sent out a press release correcting Chael Sonnen's length of suspension. He is free to apply anywhere, including Calif., June 29."

"CSAC misinterpreted Rule 399 that applied to the revocation or denial of a license. It does not apply to a suspension."

"Upon reviewing the May 18, 2011 decision of the commission, an error in the applicability of Rule 399 was made," stated a release issued today by the commission. "The rule states that, 'Any applicant who has been denied an application for a license may not file a similar application until one year from the date of the last previous denial by the commission. Any application filed within the one year period may be denied without the necessity of a hearing. Anyone who has had his license revoked may not petition for reinstatement or apply for a new license until one year after the date of such revocation. Any petition for reinstatement filed within the one year period may be denied without the necessity of a hearing.'

"Since the commission did not revoke or deny Mr. Sonnen's license, the rule does not apply."
So basically, like I said, they suspended him for nothing.

He was suspended for 6 months for the TRT thing,
his sentence was served, then out of nowhere they decided to suspend his license indefinitely for lying, even though he had not had his license revoked or denied, he served his time. BAM.

Now, do I feel California is going to Lic Sonnen next month? Hell no.
Can he fight in other states? Yeahhhhhhhh
Does it make California look stupid? YES

If Chael is back in it.... I want to see Silva/Sonnen as coaches.... Then fight!...

Chael.. has been the ONLY one (outside of Lutter) that has given Andy a run for his money...

They do.

How on earth do you set a hearing and an official ruling and NOT know if its legal?

Could you imagine if the criminal justice system did that?
Ohhh my bad, 10 years for a traffic ticket isn't legal, come home.
