Chael P. Sonnen hasn’t missed a single step at giving out
the best pre-fight interviews as “The American
Gangster” prepares to take on former UFC light-heavyweight
champion and current fellow FOX Sports’ talking-head
“Suga” Rashad Evans in the co-main event at UFC 167.
“Take two of the baddest dudes walking the planet – Rashad
Evans world champion, Chael Sonnen top 10 ranked fighter for the
last decade – you can put us together and that’s a big
fight,” tells Sonnen. “Kids are going to tell their
parents, ‘Mother, Father? Can I please buy this
The man has a gift!
While 0-3 in title fights inside the Octagon, Sonnen is 5-1 in
non-title bouts since returning to the UFC in 2009 and is coming
off a big 1st round guillotine choke of former champ Mauricio
“Shogun” Rua in August. “I have one goal and that
is to be world champion,” states Sonnen who realistically
would not be far from another shot if he defeats #4 ranked Evans.
“I don’t want the damn shot, I want the title. I
don’t believe you can ‘retire’ unless you won a
world championship; I believe you just ‘quit’. I
don’t want to quit this sport.”
