LAS VEGAS—The Nevada Athletic Commission today handed down a largely light punishment to retired UFC star Chael Sonnen.

Sonnen was suspended for two years with no fine. He is required to pay the costs of his drug testing program and for the costs (hotel, flight) of bringing in the NSAC laboratory expert. Sonnen also must work with the commission on educating other fighters under their jurisdiction.

The commission meeting, which Bleacher Report attended in person, took place at the Grant Sawyer government building. Sonnen arrived early, clad in a dark gray suit and green shirt with no tie. He was accompanied by his lawyer, Jeff Meyer, who also serves as Sonnen’s manager. Sonnen was the final item on the commission’s agenda, which also included a license application for top UFC middleweight contender Vitor Belfort.

Belfort’s license was approved on a conditional basis, provided he accepts random drug testing, and does not fight before December. Belfort must also fight in Nevada. He is scheduled to face Chris Weidman for the UFC middleweight championship on December 6 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
