Diego Sanchez looking to coach TUF opposite BJ PennPosted on November 1, 2011, 08:22 PM by Trent Reinsmith
Diego Sanchez was scheduled to meet Matt Hughes at UFC 135, however a hand injury forced him from that bout. Sanchez is still on the mend and is expecting that he will be able to return to the Octagon in February 2012.
The fighter formerly known as “Nightmare” recently expressed a desire to return to his UFC roots by coaching a season of “The Ultimate Fighter." With that role in his sights he already has an opposing coach in mind. “My thing right now is to coach that show. I know that a title shot for me is going to happen, one day it will but I would love to coach that show right now. I would like it to be against BJ (Penn); he is back at welterweight, let’s go do it and have a rematch, I think it would be great. I have a lot I can show these guys and Jesus Christ has blessed me with an ability that needs to be shared.” – for more see www.fighthubtv.com
What do you think LowKick’ers, does a TUF season featuring Sanchez and Penn as coaches sound enticing?
