Diego Sanchez Returns to Welterweight Against John Hathaway at UFC 114

Recent lightweight title challenger Diego Sanchez will make his anticipated return to welterweight at UFC 114, drawing undefeated Bristish 170-pounder John Hathaway at the May 29 event in Las Vegas.

The bout was announced yesterday by Sanchez on Twitter and is expected to be featured on UFC 114’s pay-per-view main card.
