After Sanchez turned in one of the grittiest performances of his career in a UFC 121 win over Paulo Thiago, White said the former winner of "The Ultimate Fighter" looks again like a monster at welterweight and should turn his focus there. Sanchez has a different perspective: Why not take them both on?
"I think it all just comes down to preparation and the decisions that you make and what you do in your training camp. My motto is, 'Just earn it.' Just earn the 'W,' and that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to work and earn the 'W.'
"Whatever weight class I fight at, as long as I earn it, I think I'll be fine fight at 155 or 170."
"I cleaned my life up. I'm just focused on the things that matter, which is God, my family and my career. That's where I stand right now, and that's what got me to victory."
"I just want to fight the best matchups that are going to give the fans the best fights and move me up the ladder in mixed martial arts and this organization. That's what I want to do, whether it be 155 or 170.
"I'm willing to sacrifice, make dedication, and put my heart and soul in this game."
