IMO now that Fitch got his arsh kicked and has to build his way back up, Sanchez is #2 WW contender just behind Alves. I don't wanna make excuses and stuff and I'm not big fan of Sanchez but seriously, that fight against Kos... Why the hell he didnt ask to cancel it with all the health issues and hassle he had to deal with just days/weeks before, anybody else would have cancelled. It was a Sanchez at 60% that lost to Kos, who can argue with that?
Now that split decision against Fitch, Ok he spent most of the fight on his back but he wasn't less busy than Fitch, landing shots from the bottom and going for dangerous subs + he also scored a few good TDs and showed more aggressiveness than Fitch IMO. It was a very very close fight and I know many people still give it to Sanchez.
EDIT: to conclude and answer to our OP, yeah I don't see him moving down to 155 because the timing is wrong as IMO he's #2 WW contender ATM. Wasn't the winner of Alves/Sanchez supposed to get a shot at the title?
