UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen, spoke to Ariel Helwani for FUEL TV recently and hinted at a possible move up to the light-heavyweight division:
“I love this sport and I would never want to retire. My coach Clayton will be the one that retires me based on my results and productivity in practice.
I could have easily defeated him, physically I’m fine, mentally im fine. Give me a couple of weeks to settle in and when you get in the spot that I am in, we will see.
Anderson could retire any day now. And there is simply an option to start over by changing weight class. My mentors have done it and it could happen. I would go up to 205. Jon Jones.
There are some great guys at 185, but traditionally and historically it is a good way to get a fresh start and start over.”
