Diego Sanchez is Moving to Lightweight

| by

Diego Sanchez has taken to announcing his latest information on Twitter, as the former UFC lightweight contender revealed some news on his upcoming fight.

Sanchez, a former Ultimate Fighter winner, will be returning to the ranks of 155 pounds after a brief stop at welterweight. Sanchez (23-5) went 2-2 in four bouts at 170 pounds, including a loss to Jake Ellenberger earlier this year.

"MY NEXT FIGHT WILL BE AT LIGHTWEIGHT," Sanchez posted, using all caps as only "The Dream" can. "Announcement about my next fight will be coming soon this week."

Sanchez earned himself a shot at then-champion BJ Penn when he bested Clay Guida. However, Penn picked him apart, earning a decision victory.
