UFC 159: Chael Sonnen gets into hairy situation with female reporter on ESPN SportsCenter

Chael Sonnen was flying solo for his SportsCenter appearance to promote this Saturday night's (April 27, 2013) UFC 159 pay-per-view at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. And that means ESPN reporter Sage Steele was forced to come face-to-face with "The American Gangster."

Did Chael Sonnen just swagger-jack Quinton Jackson's moves?

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight number one contender (SMH) was a recent guest on ESPN SportsCenter talking up his UFC 159 title fight against reigning division champion Jon Jones, scheduled for this Saturday night (April 27, 2013) at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

Reach out and touch someone.

"The American Gangster" decided to run his fingers through the hair of Sage Steele before breaking out into rhymes, rambling on about that nerdy guy from the Waldo puzzles and hitting a front-double biceps pose to show off what TRT and barbell curls will do for you.

Chuckle-chuckle, clap-clap.

Sonnen -- as well as "Bones" -- have been making the ESPN rounds this week to get fans talking about this weekend's pay-per-view. Just yesterday, they stopped by the SportsCenter program (watch it here) to state their case for victory in "The Garden State."

If you love the Sonnen circus and want to see him win, then he's done his job. If you hate the Sonnen circus and want to see him get his ass whipped, he's done his job.
