We will find out in â€śa couple of weeksâ€ť 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 weekendâ€™s UFC 148 rematch, and so middleweight looks to be a fruitless endeavour for him henceforth.
Sonnen spoke to Fuel TVâ€™s Ariel Helwani this week, where he was ringside for Mark Munozâ€™s 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.
â€śThereâ€™s a major opportunity for a fresh start by simply switching weight classes, thatâ€™s my mentors Randy Coture and Dan Henderson have done and its something to look at as wellâ€¦205. Give me a couple of weeks, Iâ€™m not trying to paint myself into any corner but traditionally and historically thatâ€™s a great way to rejuvenate your career and get a fresh start.â€ť
