TUF Winner Leonardo Santos Changes Weight Class

Leonardo Santos won the second season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil and got a six fight deal in the process. The Brazilian will weigh less when he returns inside the Octagon.

When Santos returns he will make the drop from welterweight to lightweight, according to SporTV Globo.

Santos won the season with a second round submission in the finals. He was originally eliminated in the semifinals by Santiago Ponzinibbio, but an injury gave Santos another chance in the finals. That took place at UFC on FUEL TV 10 in June.

The 33-year-old is 12-3 with most of the fights out of Brazil.
