I know you guys are like me you read whatever mma blog to keep up on things. So how screwed is Chael?

He must have a good lawyer if hes only going to get 2 years probation for money laundering.

he is not screwed at all!
I think he got it easy.
He got caught, played guilty and get 2 years probation! IMO this is star treatment. See if any joe shmoe who is unknown would stay out of prison....

Apparently, if you dance 5 rounds with Silva, you get a "get our of jail free" card :)

The funny thing about his contract being frozen by the UFC is Silva and Belfort are done fighting in Feb. Anderson will likely take a month off. Then in March when Chael finishes getting sentenced. They can set up a rematch in July for Sonnen Silva 2. I don't think he's screwed at all. All told he'll come off a steroid, criminal charge to get shot at the title. Pretty funny.

yep. exactly... and most important, it will be in Brazil.
And remember that he spoke badly about Brazil before the first Silva fight and Wandi gave him hell about it?

"Glad" to see it's not just in Europe that things like that also happen.

exactly!
How do you go from ex bank robber to president?
If the Country is Brazil, you just need to know a drunk union worker that became a president....

Like we say in Portugues: Eh um problema basico de QI... "quem indica!"
