Does Diego Sanchez want to fight Sean Sherk? YES!


Unfortunately "The Muscle Shark" is too banged up after his controversial win over Evan Dunham to oblige.

"Feels good to be home. I can't wait to get back in the gym, my hand is feeling better and I'm ready to get back in there and work hard. (We'll) see who Joe Silva's going to give me. I'm asking for a tough fight. I wanted Sean Sherk but it looks like he has some injuries going on so we're looking for a good tough fight whether it be at 155 or 170."

A reinvigorated Diego Sanchez is itching to get back in the cage after his unanimous decision victory over Paulo Thiago at UFC 121. A brief drop to lightweight was followed by a quick return to welterweight after he failed in his quest to win the 155-pound title. Although he was unsuccessful in his initial fight back at 170-pounds, the win over Thiago has seemingly restored his once legendary confidence and he now appears content to be a vagabond for the UFC. Will he be a "Nightmare" for his next opponent? And what division do you, the Maniacs, want to see him compete in? Check out a clip of Sanchez vibrating after the jump.
