“CSAC executive officer George Dodd told MMA Fighting on Thursday that the soonest Sonnen could reapply for a fighter’s license is May of 2012, though he could apply for a second’s license to corner other fighters sooner.
“One of our rules, in our Title IV [of the California Code of Regulations], stipulates that you have to wait one year after an appeal of your suspension or revocation of license. And since he appealed this [on May 18, 2011], it’s one year from the day of denial.”
In other words, Sonnen will either have to sit the next twelve months out or else try and get a license to fight in another commission’s jurisdiction. That most likely rules out Nevada, but several other states – not to mention the U.K., Europe, and Japan – would still remain viable options.
That is, if the UFC is willing to promote a fighter who is still officially denied a license from a major commission like California.”
Personally I couldn’t be happier. No realtor’s license, no fighter’s license – awesome. It boiled my blood to see him walk away from real estate fraud without a scratch (after ratting out his peers) after everything he’s said and done. Good luck with the next 12 months bud.
