If UFC stand-out Diego Sanchez has ever been in a boring fight you can bet your bottom dollar the lack of excitement wasn’t a result of anything he did. Known for a fearless, fan-friendly approach to competition, “The Dream” has put together a career highlight reel full of entertaining outings most recently including a February match-up with Jake Ellenberger.

It’s a trend Sanchez would like to continue in the future regardless of what division he fights in, having entered the Octagon as both a welterweight and lightweight, and a reputation he’ll have an opportunity to build on later this year after he heals up from shoulder surgery.

When it comes to his return, Sanchez has stated it’s likely he’ll give 155-pounds another shot and he already has two opponents he’d like to test his skills against ”“ Anthony Pettis and Nate Diaz.

Sanchez Willing to Fight Teammates if Match-up Makes Sense

“I told Dana I really liked that fight,” said Sanchez in an interview with MMAJunkie Radio when asked about facing Pettis. “I want to fight a guy who’s a fan favorite and who has a lot of fans and is a big draw. It’d make us both better, the sport better. Plus, the guy has a win over the champ, so that’d bump me up right to the top.”

Diaz is also in the title-hunt, picking up consecutive wins over Takanori Gomi and Donald Cerrone, and happens to have a huge public following as well.

“It’d be a Fight of the Night,” Sanchez stated on Diaz. “You’re going to get the ground game, standup. You’re going to get it all. You’re going to get a real fight with a Diaz.”

With a pair of winning options ahead of him and a new found dedication to training/living right the future looks bright for Sanchez, not to mention fans who love scintillating scraps.
