Diego Sanchez is currently readying for his hometown fight this weekend against fellow TUF winner, Ross Pearson.
Diego Sanchez on fighting in his hometown after being in the UFC for so long: “It feels like I’ve come full circle, after all those battles. I’ve had 20 fights in the UFC. It’s a dream come true. I’ve been waiting to fighting in this high altitude for a long time.”
Sanchez on how he’ll beat Ross Pearson: “Basically, I’ve got the blueprint – the Matt Brown fight. Put the pressure on him and get him tired. Chase him down and cut the cage off. If I have the opportunity to take the fight to the ground, I will. I’ve been working on my striking and I’m going to look for the knockout.”
