"His career is not over. It's far from over, I can promise you that. This is just going to get Chael more time to get better and when he comes back he's going to be coming back with full intention of getting that belt." --- Mike Roberts, UFC Fighter Manager

Though Chael Sonnen is in UFC hiatus, his manager, Mike Roberts, pointed out that the fighter’s career is far from over. Chael Sonnen is finishing up a steroids suspension, and awaiting another sentence for money laundering. According to Mike Roberts, Dana White’s decision to temporarily suspend the fighter’s contract was mutual. The UFC president believes that it would be best if the fighter gets his life back together before returning for a fight.

Last week, a news broke out that Chael Sonnen pleaded guilty of money laundering in relation to mortgage fraud. Now anticipating his sentence, the UFC fighter already gave up his license and paid a $10,000 fine. And instead of facing 20 years in jail, Chael Sonnen is expected to receive a two-year probation sentence. Though Mike Roberts is not at par on legal stuff, he assured that fans will not see Sonnen behind bars. But whether he’ll comeback to UFC as a contender, that remains to be seen. But one thing is for sure, Chael Sonnen will return inside the Octagon with the full intention of getting the middleweight championship belt.
