UFC Middleweight Chael Sonnen

Compton, California, you ain’t got nothin’ on the mean streets of West Linn, Oregon. That is, if you ask UFC middleweight top contender Chael Sonnen (Pictured).

Who wants to live in a town where people blatantly litter and jaywalk? How about growing up in a household where the maid only cleaned your pad twice a week? Hello, there are seven days in a week!

Furthermore, Sonnen was raised by a father who barely garnered a six-figure income. I mean, that’s borderline poverty…

“We have chaos. We have anarchy in West Linn,” Sonnen stated.

Perhaps that’s why Sonnen was lead to a life of white-collar crime.

Sonnen will finally get to leave his underprivileged life behind by beating middleweight champ Anderson Silva this Saturday at UFC 148.
