Chael Sonnen pre-fight interview

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

target="_blank">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

event?’”

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.”
