Chael Sonnen seems to have a new lease of life in him, judging by comments he makes on this week‚Äôs UFC Tonight.
The two-weight title challenger says he will be returning to middleweight after his upcoming light-heavyweight fight with Mauricio ‚ÄėShogun‚Äô Rua in Boston.
‚ÄúI‚Äôll return to middleweight after beating Shogun. There‚Äôre two guys I want to get matched up with: Vitor Belfort, because he‚Äôs awesome and he‚Äôs on an incredible roll. And Wanderlei Silva, who I‚Äôve heard is going back to middleweight,‚ÄĚ he says.
‚ÄúThe landscape has completely changed. I‚Äôve got a new contract and I‚Äôm returning to the weight class.‚ÄĚ
Sonnen also revealed some geographic changes at his end. Having spent most of his career training at his own Team Quest facility in Portland, Oregon, he is now going to be training with a former adversary from the wrestling circuit.
‚ÄúI‚Äôve moved to Southern California and am training at Reign with Mark Munoz. My new contract, which is a five-fight deal, was finalized today,‚ÄĚ he says.
