So much for a potential Representative Chael Sonnen in UFC. A legal issue from a few years ago has emerged and it's forced him out of the Oregon House elections. "In the best interests of my district, I am resigning from my campaign for the Oregon House of Representatives. A 2006 legal issue has arisen that needs my immediate attention. I am not at liberty to disclose the details, but my name was involved in a real estate case that requires a ruling. If the ruling is adverse, I would be disqualified from running for office until 2011. So, given that possibility, I have chosen to withdraw my name as a candidate in 2010. I will continue to contribute to my community and ensure that we have a capable candidate to run for my district in November."

I'm interested to know what this legal issue was. I wonder if we will ever find out.

lol, he didnt do them at the same time. and he had the added benefit of playing the role of blain in possibly the best movie ever. i just cant see sonnen chopping down a forest with a mini-gun. im pretty sure when people voted for him they were thinking of predator, not his partnership with ravishing rick rude

I would have voted for him based on his partnership with Ravishing Rick Rude, he was the man. Best name ever in WWE
