MMA Vet Jeff Monson Moving From Heavyweight To Light Heavyweight, Possible Future With Strikeforce

The former UFC fighter Jeff ‘Snowman’ Monson (37-11-0) has close to 50 MMA fights under his belt and is now planning to take it to another level.  Many of us are used to seeing the ‘Snowman’ compete in the heavyweight division around the world for many fight organizations, but he has decided to drop down to 205 lbs to change things up a bit.

Monson tell us that he wants to make one last run at a world title, either with the UFC or Strikeforce.  In a recent interview, he mentions how he is currently in talks with the Strikeforce promotion and seems pretty close to inking a fight contract.

From Jeff Monson:

“I’m just getting fights right now. My goal is to win the UFC title, or the Strikeforce title at 205. I’m currently in process of cutting down to light heavyweight … I’m currently 230. So I need to cut 25 pounds. It’s not a big deal for me, and I’m actually used to it from the days when I wrestled in the college … We’ve been talking to Strikeforce. So it’s just a matter of signing a contract and getting an opponent. Nothing is signed yet. But when the fight’s right and the negotiations are right, we’ll go from there.”
