Haha, this just keeps getting better....


"Chael Sonnen, an ultimate fighting champion and one-time candidate for a seat in Congress, has pleaded to a federal money laundering charge.

A licensed Realtor from West Linn, Sonnen admitted before a judge Monday that he conducted a financial transaction designed to hide or disguise the ownership and control of proceeds of mortgage fraud, according to a U.S. Department of Justice press release"

Now, Where's that Sonnen Bandwagon at?

I'm probably in the minority here and I know he brings this stuff upon himself, but I feel bad for Chael.

Why would you feel bad for him? Because he didn't get away with it? I don't get it.

i like him as a fighter and i thought his smack talk was pretty funny. i had high hopes of him taking silvas title but now it looks like it aint gonna happen. if you break the law you need to be punished so i dont feel sorry for him at all.

I knew when he quit the race like he did that he had some skeletons, but didn't realize that he straight up broke the law. From what I know, it isn't that bad. It is a federal charge, so the maximums are ridiculous. But he plead guilty to a single count, and the amount of the fraud is less than 100k. The DoJ is asking for 2 years probation. That is a slap on the wrist.

But you never know, the judge might be a Wanderlei fan and give him 20 years.

He's not going to jail...he'll pay a hefty fine and then start training for Akiyama.
