Chael Sonnen is looking to do what no other person has done since 2009, defeat Jon “Bones” Jones in a UFC fight. Sonnen, 36, will get that chance this Saturday as the headlining fight at UFC 159 with Jones’ light heavyweight world title on the line. Before the two share the octagon at UFC 159 in Newark, N.J., Sonnen appeared on SportsCenter to promote the fight. In an interview with Sage Steele, the No. 1 contender yelled a lot, flexed too much and at one point says he has, “the arms, the charm and the harm.” But the crowning moment was when he asked to touch Steele’s curly hair, telling the SportsCenter anchor that he loved it. Check out the awkward encounter in the video below. Thumbnail via YouTube
