In a recent interview with MMA Weekly, Diego Sanchez gave his thoughts on his most recent fight against UFC newcomer David Bielkheden as well as who he wants to face in the future.

When speaking of a future opponent he gave the following answer:

“One that would be big for my heart and soul would be Josh Koscheck,” he proclaimed without hesitation. “The number one question that everyone always asks me is, ‘When are you going to kick that Josh Koscheck’s ass?’ So hopefully, maybe in June or July, we can go ahead and set that fight up.”

As most of you will know, Sanchez and Koscheck have met twice before. The first encounter being in the semifinals of the first “Ultimate Fighter” in which Sanchez was victorious and the second being at UFC 69 where Josh Koscheck prevailed with a very lackluster unanimous decision.

It was discovered afterwards however that Sanchez was suffering from a serious staph infection during the fight, which could explain the uncharacteristic performance ‘Nightmare” gave.

Many people would probably be against a third fight between the two but I for one wouldn’t mind seeing a rubber match. I believe the fight would be a lot different the third time around providing Sanchez turns up healthy and aggressive.
