Recently, Montgomery announced on social media that he was moving up in weight to the middleweight division and the date for his 185 pound debut in the UFC has not been announced.

When a fighter announces a move in weight, people are wondering what led to that decision. Did the upcoming IV ban in the UFC play into this decision or was this about feeling healthy on fight night?

Montgomery explained his decision in detail to The MMA Report over the weekend and check out what he had to say below.
