Err, he's fighting at 153 in Brazil. Very much STILL part of the UFC
Ah cool also speaking of the MW division I mean I can't deny that the first time around Sonnen did beat some solid MWs. The second titleshot in my opinion was kind of a gift.

He beat Stann who is a stylistic dream for him, and then at best got a draw with Bisping, IMO Bisping won that fight.

So one stylistic dream and a controversial decision. I can say without shame that he talked and marketed his way to that second titleshot more or less. And for him to get a titleshot right away at LHW where I dont see him ever earning one, to me thats just bush leage BS.

Just to clarify what I meant. I can't deny that he can compete at the highest level at MW though.
