Diego Sanchez Eyeing Anthony Pettis

Diego Sanchez has an important bout coming up this weekend when he faces Gilbert Melendez at UFC 166 but that didn’t stop the question from being asked this week about how the former TUF winner feels he matches up with current UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis:

“I love the way I match up with Anthony Pettis,” Sanchez told MMAjunkie.com. “We’re a contrast in styles, and I feel my style beats his style.”

“I’m a very good wrestler, and I’m a better grappler than I am a wrestler,” Sanchez continued. “I feel I’m the best grappler in the division at 155 (pounds), and with my size advantage, I feel there’s not a guy that I can’t take down in that division. So it just comes down to being sharp in my striking and being ready to make a fight a fight.”

    Come on Diego, seriously. “Not a guy I cant take down in the division”—You did not take BJ down, attempt after attempt after attempt
