diego sanchez tuf 7 finale

In a recent interview on MMAWeekly, UFC welterweight contender Diego Sanchez talks about his up and coming fight with American Top Team (ATT) fighter Luigi Fioravanti (12-3) at the Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale on June 21.

Sanchez looks to avenge his loses to Koscheck and Fitch:

“Rematches with Koscheck and Fitch are definitely a part of my future. Those guys ain’t going nowhere and I ain’t going nowhere…..If I could have it my way, a picture perfect story, I’d like to go in there and win the title from whoever it may be and get a rematch with Koscheck for the title. That’d be perfect.”

Sanchez on Thiago Alves:

“I’ve got a lot of respect for him. I think he’s tough. He’s more of a striker. It’s a good fight for me. He’s actually very well rounded,” said Sanchez, who, knowing how strong ATT is in all departments, but especially in jiu-jitsu, has actually been working about 60 percent ground to 40 percent stand-up in preparations.”

“I’ve always been a ground fighter and now I’ve just took it to the next level. I want to be known as the best on the ground”

Sanchez on his up coming fight with Luigi Fioravanti:

“All my best performances… have all been on Spike (TV) and I hope to add Luigi Fioravanti to the list….I’m looking to go in and dominate Luigi Fioravanti and see what they got next for me.”

    Big fan of Diego's. I hope he woops Luigi and gets back to top contender status soon.

    Kos, Fitch are a bunch of Lay and Prey wrestlers with no finishing skills

    Why is he talking about Thiago Silva? Silva has to cut to get to 205. He would maul Diego
