Chael Sonnen will have to wait a little bit longer before he can start his career anew.

A sentencing hearing expected to serve the UFC middleweight with two years of probation, a $10,000 fine and the revocation of his real-estate license has been rescheduled from today to April 8 at the U.S. District Court building in downtown Portland, Ore.

In January Sonnen pleaded guilty to a federal charge of money laundering stemming from a shady real estate deal in 2006. His UFC contract subsequently was frozen.

Government officials said Sonnen took part in a scheme to illegally net more than $69,000 in loan proceeds through the submission of a falsified repair order, according to a report from "The Oregonian."

Ha Ha Sonnen will definitely be able to talk his way out of it if you know what I mean.

I am arguing moot court in the same building the week after that. Maybe I'll go down to see Chael's hearing and get a feel for the room.

Did you hear in this article Chael sent a letter to Joe Silva asking for a fight with Bisping. That would be awesome, cause I want Chael to pound him out. I'm not a huge Chael fan, but it would be nice to have him back because he's tough at 185.

What's "moot court" ?

A simulation of court, dealing with real laws and court procedures but with a fact setting that is fictional.

In particular, the case I am arguing is about whether a Pakistani woman who was being threatened by the Taliban qualifies for refugee status under 8 U.S. Code 1158. If that sounds fun, trust me it is not.

Ha...it really does sound interesting (maybe not fun).
