So he says…
- Diego Sanchez recently spoke about how his style is one he feels can defeat Anthony Pettis and more. Here are the highlights…
On Thinking His Style Can Beat Anthony Pettis: "I love the way I match up with Anthony Pettis. a contrast in styles, and I feel my style beats his style… I feel like my style beats Anthony Pettis' style, and I feel like I can pressure him and it's all about timing," Sanchez said. "I feel I have what it takes to win the UFC championship at lightweight."
On The Advantages His Has at 155: "I'm a very good wrestler, and I'm a better grappler than I am a wrestler," Sanchez said. "I feel I'm the best grappler in the division at 155 (pounds), and with my size advantage, I feel there's not a guy that I can't take down in that division. So it just comes down to being sharp in my striking and being ready to make a fight a fight."
On Having to Impress Against Gilbert Melendez: "I get out there and make a huge statement," Sanchez said. "If I take it to him, and I dominate him in striking, I dominate him in mixed martial arts and I finish this guy that nobody has ever finished, I think it's a huge statement. It makes a case for a title shot, and it's going to put me right back to the top."
