Chael Sonnen Will Face Wanderlei Silva At 205

Chael Sonnen Will Face Wanderlei Silva At 205

Before he returns to the middleweight ranks, Chael Sonnen will make another appearance at light heavyweight.

Sonnen confirmed on the FOX Sports 1 pre-fight show that his bout with Wanderlei Silva will take place at 205 pounds. The two are set to coach on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3, with the fight likely for the summer.

After a loss to Rashad Evans, Sonnen (29-13-1) hinted that a move back to middleweight was his best course. Silva (35-12-1) has floated between the two weight divisions, preferring to stay at 205 for the rest of his career.

No exact date has been set for the contest.
