"I'm probably going to be going down to 155 for the next fight," he said. "And there are some possible opponents I'm looking at."
 
"(Anthony Pettis and I) will be recovering about the same time," Sanchez said. "I think he got the same (shoulder) surgery as me, so it'd be an event playing field. I told Dana I really liked that fight."

"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 (of the division)."



Diego Sanchez (23-5)
Loss Jake Ellenberger Decision (unanimous)
Win Martin Kampmann Decision (unanimous)
Win Paulo Thiago Decision (unanimous)
Loss John Hathaway Decision (unanimous)
Loss B.J. Penn TKO (cut)
Win Clay Guida Decision (split)
 
Anthony Pettis (15-2)
Win Joe Lauzon KO (head kick and punches)
Win Jeremy Stephens Decision (split)
Loss Clay Guida Decision (unanimous)
Win Ben Henderson Decision (unanimous)
Win Shane Roller Submission (triangle choke)
Win Alex Karalexis Submission (triangle choke)

Doesn't deserve it is an understatement,  If Diego gets this fight I will never spend another penny on a UFC event EVER. The bullshit ZUFFA favoritism is getting out of control.

Pettis couldn't do ANYTHING against Guida, 2 fights ago. Diego fought Guida 2 years ago & it was one of the most spectacular fights ever. Diego has 1 loss @ 155 & that was to the GLWOAT. I believe Diego has a legit chance to beat Bendo. He beats Pettis with superior wrestling. UD

 Diego has the perfect style to beat Pettis. The pressure that Diego brings is the type that slows Pettis down.
