Diego Sanchez Says He Wins ‘9 Out of 10 Times’ Against Anthony Pettis
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.05.2014

- Diego Sanchez recently spoke about his upcoming fight with Ross Pearson and more. Here are the highlights…

On Anthony Pettis: "I feel I have everything to offer [Pettis], I just haven't got to show it yet," he said. "I've shown moments of my greatness, moments in my Paulo Thiago fight, in the Gilbert Melendez fight, in the third round of the Jake Ellenberger (fight), (and) with Martin Kampmann. There's been a lot of moments, but have I yet to put it together? No. After the Melendez fight, I was able to realize I need to be a high-level kickboxer and a high-level striker before anything, because the fight starts on the feet. Yeah, I have a great chin and great conditioning, but I need to be able to strike and be efficient and accurate. So that's something I've finally realized, and I really went to work with my team. But I haven't been able to show it yet. As far as wrestling and ground skills with Pettis, I think I'm on another level. He has some nice ground skills, too, but I feel like I'm on another level, and (with) size and strength, I feel that's a fight I win nine out of 10 times."

On His Upcoming Fight With Ross Pearson: "[Pearson] comes from the same team as Myles Jury, so there's a chance that they might try to play the same game plan," Sanchez told MMAjunkie. "But he's an incredibly different fighter than Myles. He's a stocky, short build, and he can't play that game plan on me because he has a different body type. I'm looking to go out and finish [Pearson]," he said. "I'm looking to dominate and take the guy wherever I can take him. I want to finish this fight. I don't want ‘Fight of the Year,' I want ‘Finish of the Year.'"
