Chael Sonnen is, in my opinion, one of the greatest UFC fighters to ever step foot in the octagon. No, he doesn’t have a great record. He has never held gold around his waist. He doesn’t have a highlight reel knockout, submission, or fight of the year.
He perseveres. He embodies the pure essence of the sport. Instead of taking fights he knows would be easy, he confronts champions head on. He calls out the baddest of the bad. Chael Sonnen chases his dreams, his goals and ambitions, even if they do not come to fruition. This is what makes him a true winner. His uncanny ability radiating a fearless aurora. He does not sit back and wait for his dreams to become reality. He tackles them into the ground, completely dismantling them.
He is proof that success does not have to be derived from your dreams just to achieve them, you just have to go out and try.
