UFC light heavyweight Chael Sonnen failed a random drug test in Nevada and will not fight Vitor Belfort July 5 at UFC 175.

According to ESPN, Sonnen was tested positive for two substances -- Anastrozole and Clomiphene -- both of which are classified as anti-estrogenic. Sonnen has been allowed to use testosterone replacement therapy in the past since he has stated that he suffers from a disorder that results in low testosterone levels.

Sonnen is expected to discuss the suspension at some point in the near future, though he is not expected to appeal, according to the report.
