On the eve of facing Arman Tsarukyan in an important duel for lightweight (up to 70,3 kg) on ​​the main card of the UFC 300, Charles of the Bronx he would be having difficulty dealing with another crucial opponent in his UFC journey: the scales. At least that's what the former fighter and current commentator for the organization says Chael Sonnen.

During the latest edition of the 'Good Guy Bad Guy' podcast, with Daniel Cormier, Sonnen stated that he had internal information that the Chute Boxe Diego Lima team was concerned about the weight cutting process of Charles of the Bronx before the official weigh-in, which takes place in the early afternoon of this Friday (12), at 13pm.


“A little behind-the-scenes information, let's see if it is confirmed. At the moment, Charles Oliveira's team's biggest concern is not with Saturday. They have an opponent before and this opponent has defeated them several times in the past: the scales. They are cutting some weight now and are a little worried about their athlete.”

Throughout his 32 fights in Ultimate, Charles of the Bronx He has already had some problems with the scales, most of them when he was performing as a featherweight (up to 65,7 kg). The most significant, however, happened in the lightweight division, when he had the category belt taken away after failing to make weight in a controversial weigh-in for his fight against Justin gaethje No. UFC 274, in May 2022.


In the opinion of Chael Sonnen, a new failure on the scale could mean the end of the chance to fight for the lightweight belt later, even in the case of a victory over Tsarukyan.

“This is possibly a fight for the number one contendership. Just to remind you, Dana White will not allow you to fight for the belt after failing to make weight in the previous fight. This could have consequences,” he concluded.
