Seems like a legitimately nice guy who would be a great training partner and teammate.

Sometimes I think that other times I think it may be car salesman nice

Everything I have seen would lead me to believe yes.

Met Chael at the 1st card held in Orlando. He personally came and met my wife and I in the arena and was a very nice guy. Shook my hand and took a picture with my wife and gave us like 3 minutes of his time. He was working UFC tonight but made time for us. Stand up guy

Hes super nice IRL, met him at a grocery store near our houses and he took a picture with me as I starstruckingly mumbled to myself. He looked at the picture and said " look at those two studs", smiled and walked away. I started laughing as I left since I couldn't believe I got so stupified.. I was loading my car with my wife and kids as he walked out and waved. Later that night I tweeted that I couldn't believe I met Chael and got so starstruck that I didn't ask him any of the questions I was dying to talk to him about (this was right around the time he was about to fight Anderson the second time). He DM'd me and said I had beautiful family and it was nice to meet me.

Hahahaha maybe but I think it’s his bad guy persona that has you thinking a little more than you would otherwise. I definitely think he comes off as a good dude who treats everyone well and takes care of his family. 

But I definitely can also see him shoving a guy’s wiener into his blender and having his morning smoothie like it’s just another Monday.

Met Chael a while back, very friendly and will actually give you time to chit chat. Persona gig is his money maker but IRL great guy.

Hes one of the most approachable fighters I've met. Most of them are but hes another level. He almost draws you in.

Lived at Chaels house when I went to train with him for the 2nd Anderson fight. He flew me out, we had only briefly met once before.

Don’t let him fool you, he’s one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. Very intelligent and polite as well. He’s an all around genuine nice guy. I don’t have a bad word to say about it.

Despite his heel persona I always got the impression he was a good dude irl. Just how he talked in interviews outside his persona. Just seemed like a decent dude. Who maybe would do some shady real estate stuft.

He’s a solid dude.  Love his podcast. He really tells it like it is and has insightful and well thought out opinions, argree or not.  Glad to hear its consistent across the board.  He’s definitely a character, but he’s got character.
