Sonnen vs. Griffin Slated for UFC 155

The two outspoken 205-pounders will meet on December 29

Former middleweight contender Chael Sonnen announced on UFC Tonight that he would be moving weight classes, and that he would be fighting a former champion by the end of the year.

The story that has now been confirmed by multiple sources places Sonnen and Forrest Griffin against one another at UFC 155. The fight is actually a rematch from a 2003 IFC scrap that saw Griffin win by triangle choke.
