Sonnen has really messed things up for himself and for a smart guy, why?

-- The problems for controversial middleweight Chael Sonnen are continuing to build. This past Monday he plead guilty to federal charges of money laundering, and today he's been suspended by the UFC. Dana White had this to say: "Chael Sonnen has gone through a lot in the last few months, and we think it's important for him to focus on getting his personal life together before focusing on his career in the UFC." Sonnen was in talks for a match with Yoshihiro Akiyama for UFC 128, but that is not happening for now. Sonnen's contract "has been temporarily frozen." No word yet on how long his suspension will be for. He received these charges after contributing to an illegal scheme to net more than $69,000 in loan proceeds through the submission of a falsified repair order. His plea deal has him agreeing to give up his realtor's license and pay a $10,000 fine. The U.S. District Attorney's office wants a 2-year probation. He will be sentenced in March. He is currently under suspension by the California State Athletic Commission for high levels of testosterone following his fight at UFC 117 with middleweight champion Anderson Silva. He tried to appeal, but failed. His supension then was shortened from 1 year to 6 months, while also keeping the $2,500 fine.

The one opponent that Chael has yet to beat is the truth. Not a single honest bone in his entire body.

It's a shame about Brandon Vera, I've always liked him, but he got dominated by Thiago Silva at 125. The state of his nose was disgusting! Ouch

IPEEINTHESHOWER is a huge fan of Chael Sonnen. He is a warrior inside the octagon. Its a shame his life is going in the direction it is, but its no ones fault but his own. I hope we do see him back in UFC one day, that guy is one of the best shit talkers in the history of shit talkers. Watch this


quote of the year
