Diego Sanchez Going Back To His Core, Wrestling

UFC lightweight/welterweight Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez has been in the wrestling room lately, getting back to his core skill that lead him to MMA.

“He’s a tough guy. I think his striking’s good, but I don’t think it’s great. I think he kinda got lucky with the Koscheck knockout and I don’t think he’s some flashy standup guy. I see a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu guy; that’s his base, that’s his foundation, and that’s his strength. As far as his wrestling goes, he’s been out wrestled in the past by several guys so I see holes in his game. I think he’s very tough and I think he’s the perfect opponent for me right now in my career. And just for the record, I do plan on dropping back to 155 after this fight. Me and Greg (Jackson) and the team are just gonna work together and see what Joe (Silva) can get lined up for me. And like I said, my whole mindset is to earn the victory and that’s it.”
