A battle worn Diego Sanchez at UFC Versus 3

MMAWeekly Radio Weekend Edition goes in-depth with UFC 135 fighter Diego Sanchez, as well as talking UFC 134 in Rio, and a special segment about Defense Soap.

Everyone knows Diego Sanchez from his time on The Ultimate Fighter season 1 and his ride through the welterweight and lightweight divisions. But in this telling interview, Sanchez opens up about a myriad of subjects including his own battles with alcohol and drugs.

“I was smoking weed, partying and it really held me back,” Sanchez said.

Now with a renewed spirit and focus as well as rejoining his original team at Jackson’s MMA, Sanchez is ready to conquer the 170-pound weight class. The next test is facing UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes at UFC 135.

“It would have been a good fight back in the day, but without a doubt I’m happy that it turned out to be now,” said Sanchez. “I have a real true jump on this training camp and I’m excited to fight at my true capability.”

Also on the show, we go in-depth in discussion about UFC 134 and the events that took place in Rio just last night as well as a segment on Defense Soap and the problems with staph and other skin diseases in MMA.
