Diego Sanchez Wants Josh Thomson, Gilbert Melendez or Nate Diaz

Former UFC lightweight title contender, Diego Sanchez recently said he would love to go head-to-head with former Strikeforce champion, Josh Thomson at UFC 164 set in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 31st.

Tuesday on UFC Tonight, Ariel Helwani stated that Diego has his eyes on three top ten fighters, with Gilbert Melendez and Nate Diaz also in the mix. “The Punk” however is the first person he’d choose to take on in the ring.

Sanchez won three of his last four fights in the octagon, defeating Paulo Thiago, Martin Kampmann and Takanori Gomi. The latter fight marked his return to the lightweight division and showed his intent to move into the 155 pound weight division.
