Sanchez wants Nate Diaz next

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Generally speaking the UFC brass is responbile for match making bouts and decided who will fight who next. But that doesn’t mean they don’t strongly consider a fighter’s opinion and if one guy calls another out and both want to fight, sometimes it’s just an easy job for the UFC matchmaker. 

Hopefully that is the case with Diego Sanchez, who today went to twitter to call out fellow lightweight Nate Diaz:

Sanchez lost a fight of the century to Gilbert Melendez at this past weekend’s UFC 166 and perhaps the idea of fighting Diaz is a way for him to get another shot at Team Cesar Gracie, as Diaz is a training partner of Gilbert Melendez.
