Chael Sonnen & Rashad Evans on SportsCenter (Video)

This Saturday night at UFC 167, friends and co-workers, Rashad Evans and Chael Sonnen, will square off in a pivotal Light Heavyweight bout. With how thin the division currently is at the top, a win for either man can put them right back into the title hunt.

The UFC, quite surprisingly I might add, has not been promoting this fight very much up until this week. Chael Sonnen, on a recent interview with TapouT radio, stated that it is up to the UFC who they promote and why. The UFC decided to heavily promote the main event, the Welterweight championship bout between Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks.

This week, however, the UFC has released a few videos and previews to spice up the excitement for the co-main event. Yesterday, Rashad and Chael made an appearance on SportsCenter to promote their fight. The video above has some classic Chael promotion along with some insightful thoughts from both men. The best part of the entire video is that they are sitting side by side. In fact, they are so close that they are touching one another. Hopefully the fight between the two lives up to the excitement.
