The following was posted on Sanchez' myspace blog. Thanks to Bloodyelbow.com for pulling the highlights:

i just had a amazing wrestiling training with olympic badass Bob Anderson he's this older wrestling coach hes 67 and he is one of the best he coached Dan Henderson to the silver and Rulon Gardner to the gold…. and im very blessed to cross paths …He has shown me greco before that i was more of a freestyle guy. more importantly Bob is a leader for GOD……

im feeling good at 185 and im not chuby either so looks like i will drop ten lbs this months and 5 in octeber then finish the water eight in the sauna……. i love cutting weight and getting in that sauna…. its a mental challange i almost seen god in the sauna before the guida fight i was 172 4 days before the fight and cut the weight between the 4 days,,,, but those last 2 pounds i was in the sauna holding saulos hand praying for god to take the weight off and when we were done praying. i checked my weight and it was .4 over i was like yes yes yes thank you jesus…..

I seen on bjpenn.com that penn's walking at 168 man thats light ;0
