"source"

Again I'm sorry to give you a not so credible source but I thought this rumor was worth mentioning.
If this is indeed true it's gonna be one hell of a fight!!

If this is true Mach would dominate Sanchez.

If it's true, Sakurai will win by a crushing KO/TKO.

I don't see why they would do that to one of thier TUFFERS Mach would take Sanchez and eat his heart. I am calling it now. Mach by the crazy Indiana Jones devil worshipper move, Mach KO by chest penetration and removal of heart.

sakurai is one of my favourites, I'll be ecstatic to see this fight if it actually happens.

He wouldn't beat GSP or Hughes.

I think Sanchez would take out Sakurai in Matt Hughes fashion. Sure Sakurai is huge at 161 but he won't have the same advantage at 170.
People count out Sanchez way too quick now that he's lost to Kos.

If it happens it will be a great fight though.

This would be a great fight. I really hope it happens but unfortunitly for diego sanchez, after that fight he'll be 19-2! lol and I don't consider his loss against Kos a loss. I just consider that fight THE BIGGEST WAIST OF 15 MINUTES IN MY LIFE.

Well, Mach would win, no doubt about that, but this should be in the PRIDE LWGP, if it's ever happening. I still have faith.

The source just got a little bit hotter. At least someone else confirmed that the report had actually been made on radio.
The forum guy called in spoke to someone at the sports department and got it confirmed.

I doubt the LWGP will ever happen. So far they only have I think 4 or 5 fighters signed for the LWGP so it doesn't look to promising yet

MMa hq is reporting the same rumor. So it's been confirmed that it was reprted on a radio station like Stickan said. I hop e they get this signed. It would be an exciting fight.
