The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and FOX Sports have terminated their broadcasting services agreements with analyst and former fighter Chael Sonnen, the company announced.

This comes after it was revealed that Sonnen has failed a second drug test conducted by the Nevada Athletic Commission in June.

Sonnen has already tested positive for banned substances in May, causing him to be pulled out of a scheduled UFC fight. He subsequently announced his retirement in the wake of the failed drug test.

According to MMA Fighting, Sonnen has been the lead analyst for UFC events on FOX Sports entities.
