It always seems a little more special when Diego Sanchez makes his way back to the Octagon. Maybe it’s because he always puts on incredible wars. Or it could be nostalgia that he is the last active contracted UFC fighter from the legendary cast of TUF 1. Whatever it is, Sanchez is always a ‘must-see’ fighter. Come September 8, Sanchez will grace the Octagon once again.
The UFC reported,
“The great state of Texas will be treated to its first visit from Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez in over four years when he faces British finisher Craig White in a UFC 228 welterweight bout at American Airlines Center in Dallas on September 8.
UFC 228, which airs live on Pay-Per-View, is headlined by a championship doubleheader featuring Tyron Woodley’s welterweight title defense against Darren Till, and Nicco Montano’s women’s flyweight title defense against Valentina Shevchenko.”
It will be the 28th time that Sanchez has stepped into his UFC office. At 36-years-old we should enjoy it, because every fight has the potential to be one of his last.
