Following Money Laundering Conviction, UFC Suspends Chael Sonnen

MMA Junkie Reports:

Chael Sonnen

– 24-11-1 MMA/ 3-2 UFC Record

– Won 3 of last 4 Fights

– Notable Wins: Nate Marquardt, Dan Miller, Yushin Okami

Sonnen was charged with money laundering after taking part in a scheme to illegally net more than $69,000 in loan proceeds through the submission of a falsified repair order.

As part of his plea deal, Sonnen agreed to give up his realtor’s license and pay a $10,000 fine, and the U.S. District Attorney’s office is said to be seeking a two-year probation. Sonnen’s official sentencing is set for March.

Sonnen is also currently serving a sentence of another sort, a suspension handed out by the California State Athletic Commission for elevated levels of testosterone following his fight-of-the-year candidate at UFC 117 with middleweight champion Anderson Silva. He was unsuccessful in appealing the punishment this past month at a CSAC hearing in Sacramento, Calif., though the commission voted to reduce his suspension from one year to six months while also issuing a $2,500 fine.

Chael Sonnen

– 24-11-1 MMA/ 3-2 UFC Record

– Won 3 of last 4 Fights

– Notable Wins: Nate Marquardt, Dan Miller, Yushin Okami

Excerpt from MMA Junkie:

 

Chael Sonnen, who fell just short of dethroning longtime UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva at this past month’s UFC 117 event, failed his post-fight drug screening likely due to performance-enhancing drugs.

That’s according to California State Athletic Commission Executive Officer George Dodd, who today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the failed test was due to a banned performance-enhancer. Sonnen could not immediately be reached for comment.

Top 10 Lists Updated

Pictured: Chael Sonnen

MF: No major changes were made this month. Chael Sonnen moved in to the top 5 on the middleweights list after his dismantling of Nate Marquardt. Also, Paulo Thiago goes from unmentioned into the 8 spot in the welterweight list after putting Mike Swick to sleep. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira falls some on the heavyweight list, but still maintains a spot in the top 10.
