We will find out in āa couple of weeksā if Chael Sonnen is going to move up to light-heavyweight.
All the indications are that he is done at middleweight, having had two fights with champion Anderson Silva which have ended in stoppage losses. A third efforts looks unlikely, despite the hype that accompanied the weekendās UFC 148 rematch, and so middleweight looks to be a fruitless endeavour for him henceforth.
Sonnen spoke to Fuel TVās Ariel Helwani this week, where he was ringside for Mark Munozās fight with Chris Weidman. Sonnen went into some detail about his reaction to losing his rematch with Anderson and also dropped heavy hints about moving up to light-heavyweight.
āThereās a major opportunity for a fresh start by simply switching weight classes, thatās my mentors Randy Coture and Dan Henderson have done and its something to look at as wellā¦205. Give me a couple of weeks, Iām not trying to paint myself into any corner but traditionally and historically thatās a great way to rejuvenate your career and get a fresh start.ā
