Chael Sonnen takes over the role of Dennis on the FX comedy, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."

OK, that's not entirely true. Actually, it's not true at all. But this video, made to promote this week's season premiere of the show, suggests that's the case.

Sonnen took some time away from the mean streets of West Linn, Ore., to shoot the spoof video. His role is limited in the clip, but he's amusing. Perhaps even more amusing than "castmate' Andrew Dice Clay.

Here's the clip. Enjoy. The co-branding and cross-promoting of UFC and Fox properties has begun.
