He's up to 240 now, which is the reason he's fighting at 205 anyway, so a Middleweight run is out of the question even if Anderson retired tomorrow, Chael can't get back down there not without endangering himself and I don't think this will be like Anderson/Chael where Chael has a ton of success. He's trying to set up a fight with Rampage but I don't think Rampage wants to fight him.
Interesting idea. I haven't heard any rumours or anything from Sonnen or his camp but It's definately logical. Rampage is chomping at the bit to leave the company so theres no way he'll be fighting again after his next one. Sonnen could always float around the LHW division but of course he won't have the same success at LHW as he did at MW. Okami, Stann and a debatable decision against Bisping are his best wins. At LHW he will come up against Gustaf, Rashad, Phil Davis, Hendo, Machida etc. Include JBJ and Daniel Comier in that list and thats 7 fighters straight away I see as having a good chance against, if not beating, Chael. I like Sonnen but if he doesn't retire like you mentioned I can see him doing a Rich Frankiln, being #2 at MW but barley in top 10 at LHW.
