Diego Sanchez vs Ross Pearson full fight video preview online for UFC Fight Night 42

Diego Sanchez is dangerously close to irrelevancy after losing three of his past four fights, including two in a row. Tonight (Sat., June 7, 2014), he'll try to bite back against his demons once more when he battles Ross Pearson in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 42 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, live on FOX Sports 1.

Shortly after Diego Sanchez and Ross Pearson made weight (full results here) for their co-main event Lightweight match later tonight (Sat., June 7, 2014) at UFC Fight Night 42, which takes place at Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque, N.M., The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) winners (from different seasons) took some time to preview their fan-friendly scrap.

Here's what they had to say ...

Sanchez:

"I believe Ross is a warrior, a fighter based on all the fight tape I've seen. He comes forward, fights and that's the type of fight I like to be in - it makes for classic fights, it makes for good fights for the fans, the organization and company. That's what we're here to do, fight for the fans. I look at his style and it makes my style that much better."

Pearson:

"Diego is a future hall of famer, man. It's an honor to fight and compete against him. We want to take our careers to the next level, step out there and prove we're one of the best Lightweights in the world. I've come here for a fight and I know for a fact I'm getting a fight with Diego."
