Diego Sanchez Says “You’re Going To See A Story That Ends Triumphant, I Don’t Care If One Person In The World Believes – I Believe.”
UFC veteran Diego Sanchez is slated to square off Craig White in a welterweight bout on Sept. 10 at UFC 228. Sanchez last competed at UFC Norfolk where Matt Brown defeated him via the first-round knockout back in November.
The first Ultimate Fighter (TUF) winner and a one-time lightweight title challenger ‘The Nightmare’ is currently on two back to back losses skid and has been finished by strikes in three of his last four outings.
Although he’s experiencing a rough stretch, Diego still believes in his capabilities and talent inside the Octagon that it’s in his destiny to become a UFC champion. He understands many people will criticise him during this process, and it’s ok if a world isn’t ready to believe, I believe in myself. (Via UFC.com)
“I’m chasing after my destiny to become the UFC champion,” says Sanchez, who will step into the Octagon for the 28th time this weekend when he takes on Craig White at UFC 228 in Dallas. “I’m looking to do a Michael Bisping story, but it’s the Diego Sanchez story and it ends differently than the Michael Bisping story because it ends with that belt around my waist and it ends with me giving all the glory to God for all the trials and tribulations (I’ve been through).
“You’re going to see a story that ends triumphant. I don’t care if one person in the world believes – I believe.”
Sanchez turns 37 by the end of this year, got a very little time left on his side. Even if he gets past White at UFC 228, that would still leave him outside the division Top 15.
Diego Sanchez unleashed at long-time teammate Donald Cerrone, who bashed Jackson-Wink MMA in an interview with Joe Rogan earlier this week. ‘The Nightmare’ may end up fighting him down the road, who knows, we’ll find out in a few days.
