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.
