LAS VEGAS – Even before his already epic fight with Clay Guida at The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale, Diego Sanchez stumped for a lightweight title shot and declared himself the No. 1 contender at 155 pounds.
And now, following Saturday's main event victory at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Sanchez hasn't wavered in his belief.
With his split-decision win over Guida, a bout that earned both competitors $25,000 "Fight of the Night" awards, Sanchez said his future is in the hands of the UFC brass. And if UFC President Dana White declares Sanchez title worthy, "Nightmare" is ready for the task at hand.STORY
