Ronda Rousey on Chael Sonnen and Drugs in Sports: Penalties Should be Much Worse

With the recent retirement and then firing of Chael Sonnen over his drug testing violations, much talk has focused on performance enhancing drugs in mixed martial arts, and the UFC in particular.

Talking about the matter at Thursday Ultimate Media Day in Las Vegas, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, being a former Olympian, takes a much harsher look at transgressors than many other fighters do.

Rousey pointed out how much more harsh the penalties are for Olympic athletes and compared current penalties for most infractions in MMA to an unpaid vacation. In short, she thinks the penalties should be much stiffer than they are.
