According to his mentor/coach Matt Serra, Pete Sell will be dropping to 170 to face Josh Burkman at UFC 90. This would mark a second weight drop for Sell as he previously dropped from 205 to 185 in the past.

That is quite a cut for Sell. Might have stamina issues 'cuz I'm assuming he'll have to drop a bunch of weight prior to the fight.

burkman will end up wit another loss if he fights sell.........sell is jus too big i believe and his striking and ground game are better ..........i think sell has an all around better mma game..........sell at 170 should be somethin to see maybe he will do alright or maybe the ufc curse will jus follow him!!!!!

Not a huge fan of either guy but when Sell gasses at 185 what do you expect at 170?

This is THE Toughest fight to call that I can remember, Both skilled fighters coming off consecutive losses. This will probably be another "Fight 4 UFC contract" fight. Losers out most likely.
