The news was first reported by TMZ.com, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) subsequently confirmed the suspension with a source close to the fighter.

"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," UFC president Dana White told TMZ.com.

MMAjunkie.com was not immediately able to reach White for comment.

On Monday, MMAjunkie.com reported that Sonnen had been targeted for a UFC 128 matchup with Yoshihiro Akiyama. That bout is now apparently on hold, as TMZ.com reports Sonnen's contract "has been temporarily frozen."

The length of Sonnen's suspension has yet to be revealed.

Seems like the right thing to do with Sonnen facing possible jail time.

What a bad year he has had
I highly doubt he gets any time probably a few years probation
But ufc suspending him was right thing to do
Curious to see how long it is

I didn't like the matchmaking anyway. Why was Akiyama getting a fight against Sonnen coming off of two losses anyway?

Karma is a bitch.



Haha, I was thinking the same thing...

2 minutes away from becoming Champion:

-Then he gets caught in the triangle/armbar

-Then he gets popped for banned substances

-Then pleads guilty for money launcering


I would say karma has soundly b**chslapped Chael Sonnen

If he is pleading guilty that means he had probably made some kind of plea bargain and i doubt that includes any jail time or he probably would be pleading not guilty.........
