Diego Sanchez’s Greatest Hits

UFC staple Diego Sanchez will take to the Octagon for the eighteenth time this weekend when he heads to Japan for a fight with Takanori Gomi at UFC on Fuel 8.

With a newfound attitude, the 31-year old Sanchez is ready to start the next phase of his career and should be entering his prime. In honor of “The Dream”, as well as the Fuel TV event he’s set to scrap on, here’s a look back at eight of Sanchez’s greatest hits under the UFC banner…
