Bisping Made to Wait as Sonnen Hearing is Delayed

2

Chael Sonnen's absence from the Octagon will continue after his hearing for a money laundering case was postponed on Monday. Sonnen must now wait until April 8 to have his case heard, so his contract with the UFC will remain frozen for the foreseeable future. The middleweight fighter has pleaded guilty to the charge, which relates to mortgage fraud. The government has recommended two years' probation rather than a prison sentence, with Sonnen also giving up his Realtor's license in addition to paying a $10,000 fine. Public information officer Gerri Badden offered no reason for the postponement of the hearing, only commenting that delays were "quite common", according to MMA Fighting. Sonnen has been linked to a fight with Michael Bisping later this year.
