Errr. no please read the sentence properly. In fact let me help you.
1st part:
"I hope to continue my win streak [BY DEFEATING BONER]

2nd part:
and I can finish my career undefeated in the UFC," Silva said. "

There is a conjunction ('and') obviously anyone who can read english can tell the 1st part is NOT EQUAL in implication to the 2nd part.

It's really quite simple when you break the sentence up and read it slowly.

Oh sure it's easy... when add in your thoughts and disregard that it was being translated from another language or how he has specifically spoken of wanting several more fights. I guess if you do all of that, read it slowly, and misconstrue what the punctuation means it's easy to see.

But thankfully my mother didn't drink while she was pregnant so I actually got what the article was trying to say. Good try, champ.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Keep it civil in here guys. If you sense a troll, walk the other direction.

Infractions WILL be handed out for insults, not matter if they were just "returning fire" or not.

- Thank you

I'm trying to keep my direct insults now. For the next while it'll be sarcasm and insinuations

Well that belongs in the "insults" category as well when it's directed at another member. So keep it sober, we can have fun in here, but not at each other's expense.

I'm Scottish, you'll have to explain to me what this "sober" word means.
