Mike Dolce: 'Chael Sonnen is 240 lbs and ripped'

Jonathan Ferrey

Mike Dolce is known as the guy who helps guys with their diets in MMA. Generally The Dolce Diet allows them to drop a weight class or aid in their weight cut, but his nutritional plans can also help guys get bigger in some cases. Such as the case of a former middleweight who is now getting a shot at the UFC light heavyweight title - Chael Sonnen.

On The Church of What's Happening Now podcast with Joey Diaz from last week, Dolce stated that Sonnen was '240 pounds and ripped' right now. When asked if that was true on twitter, Dolce confirmed it:

It's pretty clear what Sonnen's detractors are going to scream right away - TRT! - but it's really not that inconceivable that Chael could get up to 240 rather easily no matter what. Chael was 218 in the cage against Anderson Silva at UFC 148 according to Dolce, and Dolce has stated before that Chael walks around at 233. So it's definitely not that crazy. It is nuts that he cuts that much weight to make 185 though, even though he does diet down to 205 the day before fights.

So basically, Chael and Jon Jones will be walking around at about the same weight, which is interesting. But it doesn't really mean a lot.
