Back at 155, Diego Sanchez Faces Jim Miller in UFC 197 Fight Pass Headliner

Diego Sanchez’s time as a featherweight was short-lived. After one fight in the 145-pound division, Sanchez will return to lightweight and take on Jim Miller in the UFC 197 Fight Pass prelims headliner.

“We’re thrilled to present Jim Miller vs, Diego Sanchez as our featured spotlight fight for the UFC Fight Pass Prelims,” UFC Senior Vice President and Fight Pass General Manager Eric Winter told UFC.com. “Fight Pass has made a commitment to its customers to deliver strong featured Prelim fights throughout 2016 and beyond, and a match-up between these two world-class veterans is certainly a great Fight Pass exclusive for our customers around the world.”

Diego SanchezSanchez (25-8) hopes to get his career back on track after losing three of his last four outings. The Ultimate Fighter season one winner last competed in November at 145 pounds. Miller (25-7, 1 NC) has also dropped three of his last fought fights.

Both men will be fighting to remain relevant in one of the UFC’s most competitive divisions.

“These guys have 11 Fights of the Night between them,” Winter added. “This should be a great fight.”
