Chael Sonnen’s (27-12-1) championship fight with Jon Jones (17-1) is still five months away, but the challenger apparently didn’t have trouble reaching a heavier weight class. Sports nutritionist Mike Dolce revealed that Sonnen is already over the light heavyweight divisions limit.

The light heavyweight fight will be Sonnen’s return after spending the last decade as a middleweight. Sonnen enters the fight coming off his second middleweight championship loss against Anderson Silva. Jones will be looking for his fifth title defense since winning the gold in 2011.
Sonnen vs. Jones is expected for New Jersey on April 27. No venue has been named.
