UFC Fight Night 78 (a.k.a., the TUF: Latin America 2 Finale) looms, and with it comes a co-main event featuring Diego Sanchez versus Ricardo Lamas.
Holy crap, Diego Sanchez is still fighting?
Let’s take a step back and get some perspective on that feat.
Sanchez won the first season of the Ultimate Fighter. The first season! His peers from that show are all collecting Social Security checks now.
Sanchez has gone 4-5 in his last nine fights, and all of them are hard-fought decisions except for one – a bloody TKO loss to BJ Penn back in 2009.
Somehow, someway, Sanchez still has enough fire in him to act crazy and frenetic in the cage, and it’s enabled him to earn some questionable decisions.
So I repeat: holy crap, Diego Sanchez is still fighting?
The UFC is probably just as surprised as we are. Either way, they made this videos for us to watch.
