Diego Sanchez vs. Matt Hughes Expected For UFC 135

In a follow-up to a previous post, Diego Sanchez and Matt Hughes are now expected to meet at UFC 135. The UFC previously announced the match-up, but didn’t disclose the date. Diego Sanchez, however, revealed yesterday on Twitter that they’re slated to fight in Denver on Sept. 24, the location and date of UFC 135.

Fighting in Denver sept 24… Mark your calendars!

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones then followed that up with a tweet of his own to Sanchez, telling him how honored he was to fight on the same card as him. In other words, it’s likely that Jones will headline the Denver card as previously reported. The UFC hasn’t confirmed his opponent yet, but Jones sounded pretty confident last week that it would be Rampage Jackson. Hopefully, Dana White will more solid answers when he talks to reporters after the UFC 131 pre-fight press conference today.
