During yesterday’s ceremonial UFC 228 weigh-ins, Craig White surprised Sanchez and all of the fans watching when he proceeded to kiss Diego on the nose during their staredown.

Check out the “magical” moment below:

Obviously White’s pre-fight antics did not sit well with “The Nightmare”, as Diego Sanchez claims he is now more motivated for victory than ever before.

Diego Sanchez (27-11 MMA) will enter tonight’s contest with Craig White on the heels of a two-fight losing skid.

“The Nightmare” was most recently seen in action this past November at UFC Fight Night 120 in Norfolk, where he suffered a brutal first-round knockout loss thanks to a violent elbow from Matt Brown.

Diego Sanchez picked up his most recent victory in November of 2016 when he defeated Marcin Held via decision in a lightweight bout.

Meanwhile, Sanchez’s opponent Craig White (14-8 MMA) enters tonight’s contest on the heels of a first-round knockout loss to Neil Magny which occurred in his octagon debut at May’s UFC Fight Night 130 event in Liverpool.

Prior to the setback, Craig White had put together a four-fight win streak with all four victories coming by way of stoppage (3 submissions and 1 TKO).
