But yea, I like the move to 205. But I don't care for the fight.
I guess it will be interesting to see how Chael does vs. a bigger blackbelt.
And interesting to see Forrest vs. some pillow hands. Maybe he can take some shots and while being able to work his BJJ.
My question is what happens if this is all stand up? I think Sonnen has the better hands. But Forrest has the length and kicks.

Well at least he has potential to work his way up to a title shot. Even if he were to get smashed by Bones. There isn't much at 205 right now. I think he will balk up and could easily beat some tough guys. I think he could beat Gustaf. Bader. Shogun/Sonnen would be interesting with how much Shogun seems to be slowing.
At the VERY least there are at least interesting matchups. What about Sonnen/Lil Nog? Sonnen/Machida? Sonnen/Rashad? Sonnen/Rampage? Fresh matchusps.
Besides. He has had hard weight cuts for a few fights now. He probably almost NEEDS to make the move anyway.
