    Default Rumour: Diego Sanchez vs. Sakurai

    This is just a rumour at this point but it sounds like there might be something to it. Apparently a local radio station made the initial report.

    Quotes from posts on Sherdog:

    I spoke to Monica Lopez, who I'm not sure is in their sports department but (she) confirmed that Diego Sanchez is indeed, fighting Hayato 'Mach' Sakurai. Take that for what it's worth people.

    I didn't hear of his signing -- and that would be big news. I'm assuming this is rumored to be in the octagon. Wow. R.I.P. Sanchez.

    A little MMA math for you guys:

    Diego + Sakurai = Diego 19-2

    i hope this happens. Sakurai's muay thai and judo skills need to be showcased on Sanchez.

    Well it wont be Diego's first loss, but it'll be the first time he gets knocked out.

    Sakurai will own diego. I was soooo disappointed with his performance in the Kos fight.
