jason miller anonymousThis gallery features a lot of photos of 6'1" (1.85m) 185 lb. (84 kg) Chael Sonnen .  He was born in 1977 and is an American mixed martial artist who competes as a middleweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He was an NCAA Division I All-American wrestler at the University of Oregon, a silver medalist at the 2000 Greco-Roman World University Championships, as well as a two-time Dave Schultz Memorial International Greco-Roman winner. As of October 2011, Sonnen is ranked as the No. 2 middleweight in the world. But who cares?  I prefer news on steroid scandals (what with me being on steroids already).  Sonnen had one of those in  2010 when he was found to have 17 times the level of hormone testosterone than is considered average. Oops!  He got fined $2,500 and suspended from Ultimate Fighting for a year.

Sonnen who is also a realtor (!) pled guilty in 2011 for money laundering in connection with mortgage fraud. He could have gotten 20 years and a half million dollar fine but squealed on his associates and was fined $10,000 and got two years of probation and his realtor's license revoked.

If you like kick ass US Marines you'll love Brian Michael Stann (born 1980), an American mixed martial artist and U.S. Marine who competes as a middleweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He is a former WEC Light Heavyweight champion. As of October 2011, Stann is ranked #7 middleweight fighter in the world but it's his military record that is most interesting.

He enrolled in the United States Naval Academy in 1999 as a member of the Class of 2003. He played football for the Midshipmen at the position of middle linebacker during his time at the Naval Academy. Upon graduation, he was assigned as an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps, and rose to the rank of Captain. 

On May 8, 2005, then Lieutenant Stann was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines and he commanded the 2nd Mobile Assault Platoon. During Operation Matador, his unit was ambushed by insurgents while trying to secure Ramana Bridge, near Karabilah. Stann and his Marines held out for six days under heavy attacks while Stann coordinated air and tank support that eventually allowed them to be relieved on May 14, 2005.  All forty-two Marines in Stann's platoon survived, and the following March, Stann was awarded the Silver Star, the nation's third highest award for valor in combat.   Part of the citation reads: "Second Lieutenant Stann personally directed two casualty operations, three vehicle recovery operations and multiple close air support missions under enemy small arms, machine gun and mortar fire in his 360-degree fight."

This mission was shown on the episode, "Iraq's Most Wanted" on the History Channel show, Shootout!, in which Stann was interviewed. His actions were noted by President George W. Bush during one of his speeches. He left active duty in the Marine Corps as of May 2008. Captain Stann was also the commanding officer in the 8th Marine Regiment Headquarters Company while continuing to fight in the WEC. Marine Corps officials say they continue to use Stann's story as a recruiting tool, and he attributes his success in mixed martial arts to the foundation he learned fighting at the Marine Corps Martial Arts Center for Excellence in Quantico, Va.
