In honor of Diego Sanchez vs. Paulo Thiago at UFC 121, let’s remember the time when Diego was a Stevia aficionado

After UFC 107, Diego Sanchez realized that he was not welcomed to the 155lb party everyone was having in the UFC. Dude had a pretty impressive showing at UFC 95 against Joe Daddy Stevenson and followed it up by making everyone’s jaw hit the floor when he and Clay Guida raged on each other at the TUF 9 season finale. Diego was knee deep in the lightweight division until BJ Penn came along. Much like the random guy huddled around the keg at a house party, he was eventually spotted, questioned and politely instructed to leave. Diego Sanchez peaced out of the 155lb division to wander back to 170lbs. You know, the division that doesn’t have the ‘BJ Penn lives here’ sign hanging on the door. His first performance at welterweight didn’t go as planned. John Hathaway remained undefeated in a unanimous decision win over Nightmare at UFC 114. Today, it appears that Diego Sanchez has been given another shot at 170lb, only this time it’s against another guy who’s blasted nearly every opponent he’s faced: Paulo Thiago. In honor of this epic match-up, check out this video of Diego Sanchez’s secret weapon that he will be using at UFC 121. [Source]
