Lightweights Diego Sanchez and Gilbert Melendez will go toe to toe in the octagon, but they are from strangers. In a vignette released by the UFC, Sanchez and Melendez talk about how they would occasionally train together, and occasionally Melendez would sleep on his couch. The one thing both fighters agree on is that when they laced up the gloves in the gym, exciting things happened. You can check out the Countdown to UFC 166: Melendez Vs Sanchez.
