Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva Fight To Be In 205 Pound Range

The much anticipated face off match between former two-division title contender, Chael Sonnen and former PRIDE middleweight champion, Wanderlei Silva is supposedly going to take place at 205 pounds, although exactly where and when it will happen has yet to be revealed.

The weight division for the match was released during Friday’s UFC Fight Night pre-fight show on FOX Sports 2 that his upcoming fight with Wanderlei Silva will be contested at 205 pounds.

Sonnen hasn’t competed at 185 pounds since he lost to Anderson Silva via second round TKO in July 2012. Since then he has gone 1-2 at 205 pounds, defeating Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and losing out to Jon Jones and Rashad Evans.
