Chael Sonnen Forced To Withdraw From Political Campaign

Updated: June 16, 2010

Past real estate dealings have forced UFC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen to withdraw from his bid for political office.

“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.” [Fight Magazine]

Sonnen gave no details about the “Ruling” he is involved in.

    He'll have a lot of time to address this issue while healing from the beat-down he's about to receive.
