Diego Sanchez off UFC 164, targeted for fall bout with Gilbert Melendez
Diego Sanchez won't be fighting at UFC 164 in Milwaukee after all, but the fight lined up for him might be worth a little bit longer of a wait.
Sanchez (24-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC) in April told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) he had been penciled in for an August fight against an opponent to be determined. But with less than three months until that card and no opponent yet, Sanchez won't be heading to Wisconsin this summer.
Instead, multiple sources close to the fighters on Thursday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Sanchez is targeted for a fight against former Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez (21-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) this fall, likely in October or November.
