Troeng: 'It's good that [Sonnen] retired'


"It's always sad when someone chooses to cheat. I don't know the whole story, and what substances he got caught with. I think it's good that Chael retired, it's good to just leave it now, but he's a good representative, and a good force for the sport."

Fighting under the tutelage of Chael Sonnen on TUF 17, and insight into "The Gangster from West Linn."

-His opinions on Chael's recent tribulations.

-Whether he applies any of his scientific skills into mixed martial arts.
