Chael Sonnen's loss to Jon Jones at UFC 159 put his career in question. At 36 years old, and with title losses in two different divisions, would Sonnen consider retiring? He answered that question on Fuel's "UFC Tonight," and that answer is no.
"I have a lot of goals I want to achieve still, and retirement won't help me get that done," Sonnen said.
He said the weight class is up for debate, though he liked the switch to light heavyweight after years as a middleweight. He would also be happy to fight at a catchweight, like Rich Franklin did for a few fights when moving up in weight. But there's no question about who he wants to fight.
"I'm not going anywhere until me and Wanderlei [Silva] straighten this thing out once and for all,"
Like Sonnen, Silva has moved between middleweight, light heavyweight and catchweights somewhere between. He is also 36, but the sensible match-up isn't why Sonnen is interested in this bout. Sonnen has a problem with this video from 2010:
