Watch Chael Sonnen’s bizarre appearance on ‘SportsCenter’

UFC 159 main eventers Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen spent some quality time at the ESPN offices on Tuesday to promote Saturday's bout. Sonnen stopped by "SportsCenter" to do an interview with Sage Steele, and the result was ... weird.

Instead of answering Steele's question about hating opponents, Sonnen asked to touch Steele's hair, remarked that her hair is real and soft, yelled about his fight, told Steele he doesn't hate women, and then showed off his biceps. Even for Sonnen's shtickiness, it was bizarre. He usually can answer a question before taking his turn towards promoting, and he normally doesn't try to flirt with reporters.
