Sonnen Moving Back To Middleweight: ‘I’ve Always Struggled At 205′


“I had one problem tonight and that is I fought someone who’s a better fighter than I am. I thought there was spots I could beat him. I come up short in my last three fights in that exact same position. I gotta work on that. I’ve always struggled at 205 to get used to the weight. I can do better than that, but I’m going to have to go back to 185. That’s where I can do my best work; I can scramble and not get held in these positions.”

While his recent stint inside the UFC’s light-heavweight division may have seen a first round submission victory over former champ, Shogun Rua. Sonnen is still having problems with the strength of the wrestlers at 205 and as such announced at Saturday’s post-fight press conference that he will be packing down to middleweight.

    He may talk a lot of smack, but at least he’s humble in defeat and about his shortcomings.
