Diego Sanchez Meets Matt Hughes at UFC Event This Fall
Posted on April 28, 2011 by Damon Martin
Diego Sanchez will face a UFC Hall of Famer this fall, as he has been scheduled to meet former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes.

The UFC made the announcement about the match-up on Thursday.

While no date has been set for the fight, the UFC stated the bout will take place this fall.

“A match-up between two welterweight fan favorites has been verbally agreed to as Diego ‘The Dream’ Sanchez will face former UFC welterweight champion and Hall of Famer Matt Hughes,” said UFC president Dana White. “Sanchez is coming off of a Fight of Night winning performance against Martin Kampmann and Hughes is looking to add another great victory to his incredible UFC career.”

Sanchez has gone two-for-two in his last couple of bouts, picking up wins over Martin Kampmann and Paulo Thiago. The former “Ultimate Fighter” winner also re-joined his old team at Jackson’s MMA in New Mexico, and has been raving about the results he’s had since then.

Matt Hughes enters the fight coming off a fast first-round knockout at the hands of B.J. Penn last November. The multi-time UFC welterweight champion had been riding a three-fight win streak, including victories over Matt Serra and Ricardo Almeida.

The bout will likely take a main slot in one of the upcoming cards in the fall.

MMAWeekly.com will have more information on what show Sanchez vs. Hughes will take place when it becomes available.

also just noticed its on the home page too.

Think Hughes takes this any way he wants. Diego is not at this level in any area

It's already in the blog thread (under the Matt Hughes section), and I think Nate requested that the announcement/matchup be discussed there.
