Chael Sonnen began his MMA career at age 19, in Vancouver, Washington where he defeated Ben Hailey. Right, he then defeated the future contender IDOL Sport Middleweight Champion and Strikeforce Middleweight championship, Jason “Mayhem” Miller. Through time, Sonnen has played for various promotions including Ultimate Fighting Championships, Bodog Fight, and World Extreme Cage fighting. His most celebrated fight was with Anderson Silva who defeated him by capturing him in a triangle armbar which made him tap out. Afterwards, Sonnen asserted that he tapped out due to choking as opposed to being captured in the armbar. After his suspension due to incredibly high level of testosterone/epitestosterone (T/E) ratio, Silva and Sonnen II was scheduled. For the second time, he was conquered via TKO by Silva.
