Chael Sonnen suffered the most humiliating defeat at the hands of former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC’s Light Heavyweight champion Rashad Evans at UFC 167, following which, he made the announcement that it was his last match in the division and he would be returning to Middleweight for his next fight.
But the much awaited and talked about return of the American Gangster to the 185 lbs weight category has been put on hold indefinitely at least.
According to the former number one contender for both the UFC Middleweight Championship and the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship, his long awaited fight against the Axe Murderer Wanderlei Silva will take place in the 205 lbs weight category. Sonnen made the announcement in a pre-show of UFC Fight Night on FOX Sports 2 and also maintained that he had to change his stance of fighting his next fight in the Middleweight division.
And from the press brief, Sonnen advised his challenger to eat well during the holiday and enjoy it as much as he can.
Sonnen had announced in the summer that he would drop down to Middleweight once against after his match against Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua, but after submitting the Brazilian in August; he accepted another fight in the division against Evans.
But following that loss, he made it quite clear that he wanted to return to his former weight category but the UFC had made it clear to him that he would have to stick around at Light Heavyweight if he wanted the fight against Wanderlei Silva.
Silva also wanted the fight to take place at 205 lbs and he mentioned recently that he wanted his contender to be really strong so that he could survive more than a round against him, and added that he wants the fight at 205 lbs.
