Chael Sonnen sues 'Mean Street Pizza' business partner for $42,600

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Chael Sonnen has opened up a two-front fight, one against Jon Jones inside a cage at UFC 159 and the other against Lee Gamble inside an Oregon court room.

You can't cheat a cheat.

Chael Sonnen -- who copped to a money laundering charge in U.S. District Court back in 2011 -- is tangled in another legal mess; however, he's apparently on the opposite side of the aisle and the stakes aren't nearly as high.

OregonLive.com reports that Sonnen recently filed a lawsuit against his business partner, Lee Gamble, claiming that he embezzled $20,000 and owes him "another nearly $23,000 in borrowed money and unpaid rent." Sonnen and Gamble currently co-own "Mean Street Pizza" in West Linn, Ore., home of "The Jon Jones," a special pizza loaded with chicken and full of cheese.

Sonnen -- who is serving as coach on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 on FX opposite Jones and will fight the reigning Light Heavyweight champion in the UFC 159 main event on April 27, 2013 -- is out to recover a total of $42,600 (plus 9 percent per-year interest), as well as have Gamble removed from their limited liability corporation (LLC).

Maybe he can throw in a few of these signed t-shirts as a parting gift, too.
