However, though Sonnen is widely seen as a 185-pound fighter, the 36-year old spent a good amount of time competing in the light heavyweight division before signing with the UFC. And, according to Sonnen, he wouldn’t mind ending his career there either.
“I will go back to 185 if I need to, but I don’t want to. I never wanted to be at that weight class,” revealed Sonnen this week on The Opie and Anthony Show. “I always wanted to be at 205, but that’s where the contract came in at.”
