Yoshihiro Akiyama will drop down to welterweight after losing his last three fights in the middleweight division, according to Sponichi. After losing to Vitor Belfort at UFC 133, "Sexyama" apparently considered retirement before thinking better of it and finally deciding to take Dana White's advice and move down to the 170-pound division. Akiyama also said he would like to debut in his new division when the UFC heads to Japan in Feb. 2012. Any ideas on a possible opponent? Who would you like to see him fight in his new weight class?
