Looks like Pete Sell is going to drop to the Welterweight division.

I guess he was in Long Island at a wrestling show and confirmed he will be dropping to 170lbs.

I wish him luck if this does happen. I like Pete Sell as a fighter. He will be a big guy at 170lbs.

Very solid KO power at WW, as well as a beast if he catches a WW in a Sub. But once the 2nd round is halfway over, or the 3rd round starts... We'll see how good of an idea it is.

They should make him fight Matt Serra.

He should do alright. But WW is going to be a lot more competitive than MW, I hope he realizes that.

He got lots of knockout power but im not sure how well he will do in a division dominated by wrestlers. His size may help him negate some of this. Im not sure how he will do. Time will tell.

Good luck to him. I like him. Moving down could hurt or help him. We'll have to see.

He just got knocked out by Nate Quarry not too long ago. It was a good fight.

He'll make it to the top 15 and that's about it. WW's to talent and grappler rich.

That's what I want to know because he's lost his last 4 fights in the octagon and sometimes they drop guys when they go on a losing streak.

Does anybody know a ~lb that he walks around at? Seems like it would be quite a cut for him and may have quite an effect on his game.

Yet another MW moving down from a weaker division to a stronger one. I guess Silva has them all shaking in their gloves. lol

I'd be surprised if the move down helped his game.

Hum I'm not sure this is good for him. I think the cut may be to much for him but who knows maybe be the best thing ever for him. I know one thing he needs to make some kind of change because right now he is 1-4 in the UFC.

Drago is not a bad grapler, you can;t be if matt serra is your teacher... Serra has the best jits in the WW div , Sell has lots of power and thats what he uses, just because a guy doesn't go to the ground doesn't mean he can't

I hope this moves works out for Sell.
It would be real bad if he came into the welterweight division and lost his first fight.

He did look big as a MW. Its his skill is the problem, not the weight class. He isnt a very defensive striker. I'll still cheer him on.

If this is true it must be a way for him to stay in the UFC, he had too many losses at MW but at least starting again at WW he has kind of a fresh start, but i agree with many that it wil be harder for him there

Although I'm not a very big fan of his. This is probably the best move for him. He wasn't doing to well in his old division, so why not try WW. I think he will do better in that division anyway if he can make weight effectively. The guy has got serious KO power.

WHAT? why would sell get to fight serra. i like sell, but what has in done in the ufc, definatly not enough to get a shot at the title. and gsp wins serra will still be a top contender. no way he sell should get anyone near the top of the division.

I think it was more of a joke than anything. Unless im mistaken, they train together and are very good friends... so such a fight just wouldn't happen, you saw how butt-hurt Serra got, when his friend F'd up on the last season of TUF, Joey... whatta joke.

@ WW Drago could be a killer if he can keep his distance. Wrestleing isnt his strong suit. And that seems to be the stable in WW. He could mix it up and whoop some ass in the middle levels of that division. I dont thin he'll ever be a belt contender...............but i have been wrong B4

I've been looking for more info on this but I can't find anything.
I hope he makes this move. I would have to see his first fight back.
