Chael Sonnen Wins Oregon Primary, Advances To General Election

Anderson Silva isn’t the only battle Chael Sonnen is facing this year. As you may remember, Sonnen is running for a seat in the Oregon House of Representatives in addition to vying for the UFC middleweight title.

In what was the equivalent of a title eliminator bout, Sonnen scored a landside victory in the Republican primary, although that was pretty much a given considering he had no opposition.

Sonnen advances to the general election on Nov. 2 where he will face Democratic nominee Will Rasmussen for a shot to become an Oregon State Representative. Poor Mr. Rasmussen has no idea what he’s in for when the mud starts slinging.
