UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.
He did rock him, for some reason I thought he caught him trying to shoot in. The Serra fight Hughes did take Serra down an layed on him at will, what do you think he will do to Sanchez? Same thing. Diego does not have good enough wrestling nor is he strong enough to stop a Matt Hughes takedown. Your gonna have to look long and hard to find somebody capable of getting up from underneath Hughes as well. Matt Hughes has competed at ADCC events, the guy has some pretty high level grappling skills.
I could definately see that happening, but it won't be as easy as it was with Serra. I think Hughes will struggle to control Sanchez but he might be able to do it. I still give Sanchez 60/40 advantage. Prime Hughes would be different though.
Matt Hughes vs. Diego Sanchez, which was recently announced for sometime in the fall, will apparently go down on Sept. 24, 2011 in Denver, Colorado.
That's the word from Hughes himself but UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner could not verify that. He did, however, tell MMAFighting.com that there "is certainly talk" of the promotion holding an event in "The Mile High City" and that if it is to happen, the show would take place at the Pepsi Center.
