Eagle Fighting Championship is back in our lives tomorrow night (Fri., March 11, 2022).
The main event will feature two Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veterans competing at 165 pounds as Kevin Lee and Diego Sanchez collide. Both men made weight earlier this morning. In Eagle FC 46’s co-main event, another ex-UFC roster member will be in action as Anthony Hamilton takes on Rizvan Kuniev at Heavyweight.

Directly before the big men battle it out, former UFC Flyweight title challenger Ray Borg will face ex-Bellator Bantamweight contender, Ricky Bendejas. The bout will be at 135 pounds.
The main event between Lee and Sanchez will result in a rebound victory for either as they come in off losses in their final UFC contests. In Aug. 2021, Lee suffered a unanimous decision defeat to Daniel Rodriguez, which made him 1-4 in his last five outings. As for Sanchez, a Sept. 2020 loss to Jake Matthews followed by some “coaching” shenanigans spelled the end for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 1 winner.
