On Saturday, Chael Sonnen finally got his chance at Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones. It only took Jones 4:44 to TKO Sonnen with brutal ground and pound despite having suffered a particularly nasty dislocated toe in the process. In Sonnen's post-fight interview, he hinted to Joe Rogan that retirement was a possibility as he no long saw a path back to title contention.
On Tuesday's episode of UFC Tonight, Sonnen revealed that he would not be retiring:
I will definitely continue – and at 205 pounds, unless they come up with a catchweight. They have a couple of people that do that. I know Rich Franklin has fought at catchweights a bunch, but I'm not going to be in contendership anytime soon, and neither is Rich Franklin or a pool of other guys. So there is a little bit of room where we could meet in the middle.
He followed that up by calling out another Brazil rival in Wanderlei Silva. Wanderlei had a pretty simple though noncommittal response to Sonnen on Twitter:
