Paul Harris, grew up in a shack with a dirt floor, had to start picking veggies in the fields or chopping sugar cane are some horrible crap like that starting when he was like 5 years old.

Cody McKenzie, born with zero athletic ability or natural gifts, makes it to the UFC.

not sure what Krazy Horse's story is, but I'm sure it's f'dup.

He said numerous times that he has that workers raw power in his muscules. He is naturaly very strong guy thats why his leg locks are so devastating.

Sonnen decided to try his hand at politics, where he actually became a very respectable politician/buisness owner. Even though Sonnen was a promising young politician/role model, he just couldnt shake his gangsterish urge to fight, and so Sonnen the MMA fighter was born.

It was a rocky road at first, but Sonnen managed to fight his way up the ranks and later became the MW and LHW UFC champion, 1 of 3 men to ever hold 2 belts from 2 different weight classes.

Sonnen, feeling like he has accomplished everything he has set out to accomplish in MMA, decided to retire from fighting to focus on his very promising career as a sports analyst for Fox Sports. Sonnen later got tired of his job at Fox Sports and quit that shit as well. He will be missed, but legends are never forgotten.


you can hear the story from Chael himself. There were years his dad barely made a hundred grand.
