*Yesterday, Anton Tabuena reported that Caol Uno has made the decision to continue fighting. Today, various sources have confirmed that Uno's next bout will take place in the Featherweight division.
Japanese fight veteran, Caol Uno is dropping down to featherweight for his next bout, according to MMA Weekly.
Holding a record of 27-13-5, Uno - once considered as one of the top lightweight fighters in the world- will fight at the 145lb division at Dream 16. However, the fans who want him to continue his fighting career should be wary, he warned that his next bout could be his 'final fight'.
Whilst the subject of weight-cutting amongst Asian fighters has been discussed to death amongst fans, his supporters should be happy about this decision, especially considering that many still have the painful image of Uno being flattened by the much larger Gleison Tibau lingering in their memories.
I hope, that for his sake, Uno can find success in a new division. And who knows, if he decides to continue fighting, perhaps a successful run at featherweight might just see Uno back fighting under the Zuffa banner for the WEC.
All I have to say is 'Good Luck Caol!'
