UFC Quick Quote: Pete Sell considers drop to welterweight

"As of right now I am still rehabbing a torn labrum I suffered over 20 weeks ago. This time has given me time to reflect in my career and my life in general. I am also trying to get down to 170 and compete at welterweight. This has allowed me to become more dedicated and to lead a more disciplined life style. No drinking and binging will make me a better all around fighter."

-- Contestant on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 4 and long-time UFC middleweight fighter, Pete Sell, tells that he is mulling a move down to the welterweight class. "Drago" is on a four-fight losing streak inside the Octagon since his upset of Phil Baroni at UFC 51: "Super Saturday" back in 2005. During that span he was involved in one of the most memorable finishes in the history of the promotion, losing to Scott Smith via Hail Mary knockout at the TUF 4 Finale in November 2006. The move would hopefully help the Matt Serra protege get back on track -- Sell is a good guy.
