Matt Hughes vs Diego Sanchez, Set for UFC 135 in Denver
With UFC 135 now set on September 24 in Denver, a Matt Hughes vs Diego Sanchez duel will be part of this upcoming tournament.
After UFC officials announced UFC 135 last April, the upcoming tournament has finally been pinned to an event. Set to take place on September 24 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Matt Hughes and Diego Sanchez agreed to lock horns in the forthcoming match. It was the former who first hinted UFC 135’s venue on his website, and was confirmed on the latter’s Twitter account.
Diego Sanchez recently earned his second consecutive victory, after defeating Martin Kampmann at UFC on Versus 3 via unanimous decision. Meanwhile, Matt Hughes hasn’t fought since November 2010, after suffering a 21-second knockout from BJ Penn. But prior to that, the H.I.T. squad earned a three-fight win streak from Matt Serra, Renzo Gracie and Ricardo Almeida.
