Embattled UFC fighter Chael Sonnen’s legal woes came to an end earlier this month as the middleweight contender was sentenced to 24 months probation, a $10,000 fine, and forfeiture of his real estate license as the result of his Jan. 3 guilty plea by the U.S. District Court in Portland, OR.
Sonnen had plead guilty to money laundering in a federal mortgage fraud case. His legal troubles came only a few months after Sonnen was punished by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for failing to properly disclose his use of synthetic testosterone for hormone replacement therapy.
As a result of the tumult in his personal life, Sonnen’s contract with the UFC was frozen. Sonnen had stayed quiet over the past few months on his troubles outside of the cage, but spoke with “The MMA Hour” this week to discuss his legal issues, his problems with Keith Kizer of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, his return to the cage, Jon Jones, Michael Bisping and more.
