Sanchez fights Hathaway, Duffee vs. Russow possible for UFC 114

According to the reports, a few new interesting match-ups could take place in the next Ultimate Fighting Championship events. Former UFC Lightweight contender Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez will move back to the UFC Welterweight division to fight 12-0 British fighter John Hathaway probably at UFC 114 on May 29th, as Diego Sanchez stated in his Twitter account.

UFC Heavyweight prodigy Todd Duffee will make his long awaited return to The Octagon against veteran Mike Russow in another fight that will also take place at UFC 114. Todd Duffee was forced to pull out of a fight against Paul Buentello at UFC 107, due to a knee injury. Twenty-four year old prospect currently trains at the Xtreme Couture Gym, and considered as one of the future stars in Mixed Martial Arts.

Also, Evan Dunham, who defeated The Ultimate Fighter 8 Winner Efrain Escudero via a devastating armbar will square off against Tyson Griffin who will look for an impressive victory to move up the ranks in the UFC Lightweight division. Griffin regarded as one of the potential contenders for BJ Penn’s crown, but Dunham proved himself as a very dangerous fighter with a huge heart. The fight is expected to happen at UFC 115 in Vancouver on June 12th.

    I think the UFC is trying to build up the wounded ego of sanchez. They do that every now and then, but the underdog fighter somtimes gets the W and gets rocketed into fame. like Jens Pulver vs. Joe Lauzon.

    Sanchez needs to change things up because he’s become predictable, Penn proved that, best LW in the world or not. I like Hitman Hathaway and he IS a good genuine prospect but i’m not sure he’s ready for the likes of Diego Sanchez, who’s going to be fired up after such a brutal defeat. John has proved himself time and again up to now though so this is the acid test, the next step up, that’s providing Diego is back at that level at WW. Good match up though, will definately be exciting…………..
