Never one to shy away from a fight, UFC welterweight crazy man Diego Sanchez has targeted the UFC in Rio card on August 27th for his next fight inside the octagon, calling for a fight to be made between him and former title contender, Thiago Alves.

The man now dubbed “The Dream” conversed with one of his fans via Twitter last night, saying a fight between the two would be “tight” before adding Brazil would be the perfect venue to host it.

Sanchez is coming off back-to-back wins inside the octagon against Paulo Thiago and Martin Kampmann, two fights that did nothing to showcase his technique but everything when it came to highlighting his heart and determination to win. Stay tuned to MMABay to find out if he gets his wish or not as it breaks.

Do not post anything from MMABay on this site. Ever. Not even in Noobjack.

They are full of shit, and they do not belong here.

Seriously, next guy to post anything from that shitstain of a site catches a 3 day ban.

I hope Alves is focused on fighting Story in may rather than anything else

I don't know what to say about this article since it came from the Bay. Until further notice, the validity is questionable. However, it would be a SICK fight and I would love to see it and i'm sure everyone else would, too. I think Diego should have stuck to "The Nightmare" because that is what he looked like after the Kampmann fight.

Btw, that picture is disturbing. It looks like Sanchez is trying to be like David Carradine.

Ya hes a little off...

I see thiago winning, he has some good tools especially standing, but we have seen him lackluster at times so you never know.

Diego should have changed his nickname to "Dirty".

I would be a sick fight. Would be nice if it happend, where doesn't matter.

the only way Sanchez wins this fight is another gift from the judges.

I am not a Sanchez fan by any means, but I think he beats Alves.

Alves will get takendown and grinded out like what Fitch did to him.

IMO, Alves has a strikers chance and that is it. He will have to catch Sanchez while he shoots for the TD

and the article is from the Bay so I dont believe it yet anyway

Thiago Alves is already inked to fight Rick Story in May....dont expect anything to come of Diego vs Alves for a long time with the potential for medical suspensions after Alves vs Story.

Alves dominates Sanchez if he's the same fighter he was when he thrashed John Howard.
