Following a narrow split-decision win over Takanori Gomi in March, veteran UFC lightweight Diego Sanchez will return in August at UFC 164.

I'd like to see him fight Lauzon. That would be a hell of a fight. Varner isn't a bad option either.

there are a lot of good fights in store for Diego. I was curious to see where he would land in the mix of top contenders when I heard he was returning to 155. I don't know how he was gifted the decision against Gomi, in Japan no less. I like the Varner-Sanchez suggestion. Both have solid wrestling and boxing, and it's a good win for either guy.

No matter who he's against, it will more than likely be an exciting fight. So far so good for the card here.

Sanchez and Nate both looked like junk thier last fight and neither really wants to fight 155. I'd love to see Nate avenge Nick.

Curious to see who they pick for his opponent. Sanchez has always put on great fights and I'm looking forward to seeing him back in the octagon

I thought BJ turning his face into the Toxic Avenger was pretty entertaining

Best guess is varner

Lauzon is fighting in Boston probably against Healy or Melendez
