UFC Tonight: Chael Sonnen will NOT be retiring, is seeking a fight with Wanderlei

UFC Tonight ‏@UFCTonight
"I’ll fight at 205. I’m not retiring. I’m 36 years old. I have a lot of goals and not going to reach them if I retire." - @Sonnench

Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani
Chael on @UFCTonight: "I'm not going anywhere until me and Wanderlei straighten this thing out once and for all." Yes, please.

Cool. Like watching him fight. A bout with Wanderlei Silva is very likely.

He better drop back down to MW he can't hold down LHWs like he does at MW.

Chael not retiring yet, wants Wanderlei, wants catchweight bouts

From UFC Tonight on FUEL interview w/Ken Flo

Sounded like maybe he wants to hang around in case Anderson loses the belt or retires.

Hmm, don't agree with that choice. He belongs in MW imo.

Edit: but a LHW bout with Wanderlei is very ideal. I figured he was testing the waters with Wanderlei at the post fight presser when he mentioned him.

Of course he isn't retiring. How would he get another undeserved title shot if he did? For those who can't see the future, let me clue you in. Sonnen is going to be put against two fighters he is likely to beat. By the time those two fights are over Jones will have cleared out the last few LHW contenders and Sonnen will be thrust back into another title shot.
