UFC 164 has its first fighter as Diego Sanchez heads to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. An opponent for Sanchez is soon to be announced. The UFC has yet to confirm the news, however Sanchez made the announcement on MMAJunkie Radio.
Sanchez was last in action at UFC on FUEL TV 8, where he picked up a somewhat controversial decision victory over a resurgent Takanori Gomi. Sanchez will remain at lightweight for the bout, and will need to make sure he makes weight after missing weight prior to the Gomi fight. Sanchez is 3-1 in the lightweight division.
Sanchez is the first fighter announced for the UFC 164. The fight card will take place at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 31. The fight card will air live on PPV.
