Mixed Martial Artist Chael Sonnen accomplishes more than most and can still hold his head high at the end of his day.

Many people know the name Chael Sonnen for his mixed martial arts career. Chael has had an outstanding career in mixed martial arts and has accomplished what most that make the attempt only dream about. He has fought in many events through several different venues such as Sportfight, WEC, IFL, and even the UFC. The man you see on television and hear on radio trash talking his opponents is only a part of who he is.

Chael was born April 3rd 1977 in West Linn Oregon. He competed in college wrestling events and finished 5th in the NCAA Pac-10. He was selected as a first alternate for the American Olympic Wrestling Team. Chael has accomplished a lot more than the average athlete and is not one sided or even two sided. He is the diamond in the rough as many put it having many facets. He is an athlete, politician, coach, realtor, and much more.

Chael has accomplished other things in life while he competed in the mixed martial arts. He has participated in various republican campaigns in the past and is now running for Oregon’s State Representative seat. Chael is a Republican and hard working business man who have worked his way up the ladder from the bottom rung. He stands up for communities and fights to ensure senior’s needs are met.  Chael Sonnen is not a typical politician. He is an active role model in his community and among his friends and associates. I have personally known Chael Sonnen during my amateur mixed martial arts career having participated in three of his local events. Chael and local promoter Kevin Keeney work together hosting the FCFF in Portland, Oregon. He is witty but very friendly and professional. When it comes to getting a job done he puts forth the efforts’ necessary which is what you witness in his mixed martial arts career as a trash talker. It is part of the game and he does it very well.

As a representative he would be very professional as he has always portrayed himself with whatever demeanor is necessary for the task at hand. Chael deals in real estate working for John L. Scott in West Linn Oregon. This is a job that also takes professionalism and courtesy. With someone representing Oregon with the background and character Chael possesses, I think it is safe to say that Oregon would fare very well in the future. Chael has the integrity and passion to never back down from a challenge and not feel threatened by the influence of other politicians.
