Just in time for his Gilbert Melendez scrap at UFC 166 on Oct. 19 in Houston, Texas, longtime lightweight mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran Diego Sanchez posts a pic (via Twitter) of Roberto “Tussa” Alencar awarding "The Dream" his black belt in jiu-jitsu. That kind of hardware will come in handy during his "El Nino" fight, which will undoubtedly hit the ground at some point during their three-round war inside the Toyota Center (details). Who's picking Sanchez by submission?
