Before he returns to the middleweight ranks, Chael Sonnen will make another appearance at light heavyweight.

Sonnen confirmed on the FOX Sports 1 pre-fight show that his bout with Wanderlei Silva will take place at 205 pounds. The two are set to coach on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3, with the fight likely for the summer.

After a loss to Rashad Evans, Sonnen (29-13-1) hinted that a move back to middleweight was his best course. Silva (35-12-1) has floated between the two weight divisions, preferring to stay at 205 for the rest of his career.

No exact date has been set for the contest.
