UFC welterweight Diego Sanchez is making good on his desire to drop down to lightweight for his next outing. Sanchez took to Twitter to let fans know that his next will be taking place at 155 pounds and added they can expect the name  of his opponent in the coming days.

“My next fight will be at lightweight. Announcement about my next fight will be coming soon this week,” Sanchez Tweeted.

The Ultimate Fighter winner’s move is no real surprise, as earlier in the year he told media outlets that he felt he had a significant advantage at lightweight and it was a smart decision to make regarding the rest of his career.

Sanchez told MMAFighting:

“I’m just not that physically big, so I was like, I better do what I have to do, get down to 155, be where I’m going to have the most leverage, strength, speed, the best technique. And also on top of that have less injuries training with smaller guys, less weight, less load on the knees. Its a smarter decision toward the end of my career.”
