Diego Sanches: ‘Melendez Punches Like A Diaz, Little Tip-Taps Had Me Feeling Invincible’

“He could not hurt me. I felt invincible in there and I landed the big uppercut. I went for the submission when I should’ve gone for the ground and pound. I’ve fought at 170. I’ve fought at 185. And I’ll tell you straight honest to God, Gilbert Melendez never fazed me or dazed me once. I was walking through those punches for a reason, because they felt like little nothings. It was little tip-tap Nate Diaz, Nick Diaz punches to me.”

During yesterday’s media scrum, Diego Sanchez discussed his last fight against the top lightweight contender, Gilbert Melendez.

Diego fights Myles Jury this weekend, on the main card of UFC 171.
