The "Savage Dog Show" has a nice interview with UFC welterweight Diego Sanchez (17-0).
It delves into his victory over Joe Riggs (25-9) at UFC Fight Night at Miramar and what it means for the future of the 170-pound division.
Of course, the discussion snowballs into a possible championship fight with Georges St. Pierre (13-1) on April 7 at UFC 69. And, Diego sounds pumped at the prospect of getting a title shot in the next few months.
Greg Savage also more or less confirms that Matt Hughes (40-5) will fight at UFC 68 on March 3 in Columbus, Ohio, possibly against Karo Parisyan (16-4).
He also mentions that either Chris Leben (16-2) or Jason Macdonald (17-7) — who are fighting one another at UFC 66 — will face off against former 185-pound champion Rich Franklin (20-2) that same night (for our thoughts click here).
This is great news if and when it is confirmed by the UFC. By all accounts, it seems like St. Pierre-Sanchez is a done deal for UFC 69.
And Hughes-Parisyan at UFC 68?
These cards just keep getting better and better.
Update: MMAWeekly.com now has now added Matt Hughes and Karo Parisyan to the upcoming UFC 68 fight card. The site has not confirmed that they will fight one another, however.
