Report: Diego Sanchez Next In Line For Shot At 155lb Title

0

Kevin Iole reports on Yahoo!:

Diego will get the next title shot against the winner of the B.J. Penn-Kenny Florian fight at UFC 101 on Aug. 8 in Philadelphia. While I agree with you that Maynard is deserving, Sanchez is a former “Ultimate Fighter” winner and is 10-2 in the UFC, not counting his wins on TUF 1. While I wouldn’t be opposed to having Maynard and Sanchez fight and seeing that winner get the title shot, I believe Sanchez has won enough fights and waited a long enough time to deserve the next chance.
