Diego Sanchez was open to fighting at whatever weight the UFC threw at him to get on the UFC Albuquerque fight card. Lightweight, welterweight, even middleweight… give him a name and Sanchez was down for whomever.
Albuquerque is Sanchez’s hometown and he hasn’t fought there in more than a decade, since he was ruling the roost under the King of the Cage banner.
Sanchez got his wish, landing in the co-main event opposite Ross Pearson.
