UFC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen said he wouldn’t retire if he’s successful in beating champion Anderson Silva next month, saying the champion is just first in line.
“After I destroy Anderson Silva for the second time on July 7 at the MGM Grand and only on pay-per-view, no, I’m not gonna retire. There’s too many guys I need to beat up. I have a moral obligation to get rid of some of the trash in this business and specifically in the company the UFC. I’m gonna stick around until I fulfill my obligation to society.”
Sonnen has definite showmanship, and will carry that type of controversial swagger into the cage with him at UFC 148 on July 7.
