Diego Sanchez promises to put "Pedal to the Metal" against Matt Hughes


Former UFC Lightweight title challenger Diego “Nightmare/Dream” Sanchez promises an exciting encounter with Matt Hughes in the co-main event of UFC 135 later this month. Twenty-nine year old Sanchez will look to extend his two-fight winning streak in the UFC Welterweight division, with sights on getting himself close to the title shot mix. In his last bout, Sanchez defeated Martin Kampmann via a controversial Unanimous Decision, that also earned the Greg Jackson product his fourth Fight of the Night award inside the Octagon.

    Matt Hughes in his prime would have eaten diego like a mean dreamcatcher. Unfortunately gotta say I’ve got Diego taking this by pretty fast TKO. Matt’s chin isn’t what it used to be…

    I don’t know, I got Hughes taking this one but whenever Diego fights its usually a pretty good show. If he explodes like he did with Guida that would be awesome.

    Neither Hughes nor Diego have the skills to compete in the UFC anymore at a high level.

    Diego’s striking is terrible .. run in throw 2 or 3 wild strikes and go for a takedown (wash, rinse, repeat) .. if Hughes can’t beat him he is indeed washed up (IMO)

    I don’t understand your analogy about the dreamcatcher, but it probably is likely that hughes in his prime would have won.

    Now, probably not.

    Dreamcatchers are meant to catch bad dreams/nightmares (Diego’s nickname), kind of like a fly in a spider web.

    I was like “dreamcatchers being edible?”
