    Default Diego Sanchez hints at possible UFC on FUEL TV 8 bout with Takanori Gomi

    Diego Sanchez hints at possible UFC on FUEL TV 8 bout with Takanori Gomi | MMAjunkie.com

    Diego Sanchez (23-5 MMA, 12-5 UFC) may soon have his first fight in more than a year.

    The UFC veteran today tweeted that he may fight fellow lightweight Takanori Gomi (34-8 MMA, 3-3 UFC) at UFC on FUEL TV 8 in Japan, assuming the Japanese fighter takes the bout.

    UFC on FUEL TV 8 takes place March 3 at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Following Facebook prelims, the night's main card airs on FUEL TV (on March 2 in the U.S. due to the time difference).

    UFC officials have announced nothing in regards to the potential Sanchez vs. Gomi fight, which likely would be part of the main card.

    "Might have a fight lined up for march 2nd," wrote Sanchez, who's been on the mend following shoulder surgery. "Just waiting on the man Joe Silva to see if Mr. Fireball kid takes it?"

    Earlier this year, Sanchez told MMAjunkie.com Radio (MMAjunkie.com Radio | MMAjunkie.com) he was considering a return to lightweight.

    Holy shit!

    This fight should be really amazing, especially if Gomi comes into the fight in-shape like he did against Danzig.

    If Diego walks forward, he's definately going to sleep, Gomi's power is insane. Otherwise, I think if Diego's cut goes well, he can outwork Gomi and get the win, maybe even the sub.

    Should be a great fight.

    Sick fight. This will be one hell of a war for sure. Diego has a pretty solid chin but it's going to be put to the test for sure.

    Love this fight. Though if Gomi doesn't stay in shape, he's getting destroyed in the second round.

    Hell yeah. This fight should be an all out war.

    I hope Diego is able to pull it off and get his shit rolling again.
