UFC 159 is almost her, but if you've been following the Twitter account of event headliner and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight No. 1 contender Chael Sonnen, you already knew that, didn't you? As the days have winded down to Saturday's (April 27, 2013) pay-per-view (PPV) event in Newark, N.J., Sonnen has counted the moments in the form of a witty, or perhaps even insulting, social media message for his fans and upcoming opponent, reigning 205-pound champion Jon Jones. Much like his personality in real life, Sonnen's countdown was a mix of comical, courageous and confusing, but ultimately it only added to the anticipation for his title bout against Jones just hours from now in "The Garden State." If you happened to miss any of Sonnen's UFC 159 Twitter count down, we've compiled a neat and tidy list for you to catch up on.

"I think I stopped reading it at like day 27, and it doesn't fuel me anymore. "It's foolishness, really." Foolishness or not, Sonnen does his best to keep the fans entertained.
