Photo of Sonnnen Before Facing off with Silva at UFC 148 Pre-Fight Presser

By now you have likely heard, or better yet seen, what went down at today's UFC 148 pre-fight press conference featuring Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. Silva one again pulled from his bag of theatrics by aggressively body shoving Sonnen when they met for a face-off photo. Sonnen stood his ground and the two eventually had to be separated by UFC president Dana White.

They say a photo is worth a thousand words and the one that most caught this eye was the above photo taken of Chael as he was waiting to square off with Anderson. To be fair, it is a terribly unflattering shot and it is easy to catch a guy looking awkward and/or scared in a single frame.

So make what you will of the photo. None of us are experts in body language so there is probably little to be gained from reading into the snapshot too much, but it certainly makes for interesting fodder.

Be sure to do yourself a favor and catch the official weigh-ins which will be taking place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas this Friday at 7pm EST and streaming live here at Bleacher Report.
