The issues that White spoke about came to light on Monday when Sonnen pled guilty in Federal court to a money laundering charge that will likely result in a $10,000 fine, two years of probation, and the revoking of his real estate license.

Yeah, heard about it a few days ago. Chael's lucky he's getting a small fine and probation. The maximum penalty was a $500000 fine and 20 years in prison.

I liked Chael, so it kind of sucks to see him messing around so much. I'm not surprised at the same time though, he was, after all, an aspiring politician. Those guys just can't be trusted.

Did this not happen years ago? Before he hit the UFC?

Sucks that a mistake made while so young, has potentially destroyed his career.
