Mar 22, 2022

Retired UFC fighter Chael Sonnen is being charged with 11 counts of battery, including a felony, stemming from a Dec. 18 incident in Las Vegas, according to court records. The felony is being classified as battery by strangulation. Sonnen initially received five battery citations in the case, but those were dismissed in January without prejudice, which means the charges can be refiled. A new criminal complaint was filed by the Clark County district attorney with the Las Vegas Justice Court on March 16, according to court records.
