...he's not done taking out the trash.

"After I destroy Anderson Silva for the second time on July 7 at the MGM Grand and only on pay-per-view, no, I'm not gonna retire. There's too many guys I need to beat up. I have a moral obligation to get rid of some of the trash in this business and specifically in the company the UFC. I'm gonna stick around until I fulfill my obligation to society."

There was, however, no mention of what he plans to do if he loses in his main event rematch against Anderson Silva at the UFC 148 Fourth of July weekend mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza.

For the second time.

Hear more from Sonnen (via TapouT) on getting punched in the face by Dan Henderson, naming pizzas after himself and of course, his dance with "The Spider" next month in Las Vegas, Nevada, after the jump.
