In the main event of tomorrow night's (Wed., Feb. 15, 2012) UFC on Fuel TV 1 event in Omaha, Nebraska, Diego Sanchez returns to take on top welterweight contender Jake Ellenberger. A title shot isn't officially on the line but a win certainly puts one of the two in prime position to contest for the division crown much sooner rather than later.
Sanchez is pumped and ready for challenge, especially considering his opponent is one he finds easy to get up for:
"It really gets me excited to know I'm going in there with someone who's going to go in there and try to take my head off. I love these kind of fights, that's why I signed up."
Ellenberger essentially feels the same and is looking forward to tangoing with the always unpredictable "Nightmare:"
"Fights are very unpredictable, especially against a guy like Diego Sanchez. I'm not really sure where this fight's going to go but I'm looking forward to it."
It's a race to the center of the Octagon, Maniacs, with 170-pound glory on the line. Who takes it when these two powerful warriors meet inside the cage?
