We will find out in âa couple of weeksâ 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 weekendâs UFC 148 rematch, and so middleweight looks to be a fruitless endeavour for him henceforth.
Sonnen spoke to Fuel TVâs Ariel Helwani this week, where he was ringside for Mark Munozâs 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.
âThereâs a major opportunity for a fresh start by simply switching weight classes, thatâs my mentors Randy Coture and Dan Henderson have done and its something to look at as wellâŚ205. Give me a couple of weeks, Iâm not trying to paint myself into any corner but traditionally and historically thatâs a great way to rejuvenate your career and get a fresh start.â
