Diego Sanchez out of UFC 135; Matt Hughes vs. Josh Koscheck in the worksPosted on September 5, 2011, 04:43 PM by Trent Reinsmith
UFC President Dana White broke the news via twitter:
Diego Sanchez broke his hand. Looking for a replacement for Hughes.
Sanchez is on a two-fight winning streak, with both of those fights, unanimous decision wins over Paulo Thiago and Martin Kampmann earning “Fight of the Night” bonuses for the fighter formerly known as “Nightmare.”
According to his personal Twitter account, former title challenger Josh Koscheck has been tabbed as a replacement for Sanchez, but is still awaiting confirmation from the UFC. Koscheck has been inactive due to injury since his failed attempt at dethroning Georges St. Pierre last December and was initially expected to take part in the promotion's November debut in San Jose, California. If Hughes accepts, he'll face the former champ on less than three weeks notice.
Oh ya 19 days then or something like that!!!! Either way it looks like I am in to fight matt Hugh if he takes it????
