Chael Sonnen Gives “Awkward” Interview on “Sportscenter”

By FCF Staff

Chael Sonnen has been somewhat reserved–by his usual standards–heading into his bout with UFC 159 this Saturday night, but the former middleweight’s recent appearance on Sportscenter was far from that.

An animated Sonnen requested to touch host Sage Steele’s hair, before going on a pro wrestling like rant to promote himself and his bout with light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones,

Steele reportedly told Big Lead Sports afterwards that the interview was one of “the more awkward” interviews she has done, but that she believes Sonnen is “harmless” and “hysterical”.

UFC 159 will be hosted by the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
