After a failed attempted on the scales during his last time out at UFC 226, The Ultimate Fighter season 15 winner Michael Chiesa is changing divisions.

Although he immediately stated after missing the lightweight mark for his last fight, Chiesa is actually going through with his plan to move up to 170-pounds as was confirmed to ESPN.

For his ideal UFC welterweight debut, Chiesa hopes to get onto UFC 232 on December 29 where he would like to face the former UFC interim and WEC welterweight champion Carlos Condit. The fight has apparently been discussed, however, Condit’s team doesn’t have any interest in the matchup despite wanting to return around the same time as Chiesa.

Don’t see him having a lot of success at 170. Chiesa’s main Advantages at 155 was his size advantage and ability to absorb damage. 170 is just as deep as far as talent when compared to 155, he will be giving up the size and strength he has, plus the 170 guys hit just that much more harder than 155. I just can’t see him doing well against many of the top 15.
