Diego Sanchez after brutal KO loss to Matt Brown at UFC-Norfolk: 'I'm not done yet'


Those pleading for Diego Sanchez to retire after his highlight-reel knockout loss to Matt Brown at UFC Fight Night 120 won’t have their wish granted.

Sanchez (27-11 MMA, 16-11 UFC), who suffered a brutal first-round knockout courtesy of a vicious elbow from Brown (21-16 MMA, 14-10 UFC) in Saturday’s FS1-televised welterweight co-headliner at Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va., said he intends to fight on despite a 3-6 record in his past nine octagon appearances.

“The Nightmare” released an update on social media at the conclusion of the event (via Instagram):

I love y’all fans hope you guys liked the fight, what can I say but it hurts to let down the family. But that’s the fight game. I still have fight in me I’m not done yet I know that @iamtheimmortal what a classy competitor

Sanchez, who was making his 27th UFC appearance at the event after winning Season 1 of “The Ultimate Fighter” in 2005, suffered his third knockout loss in his past four fights. He’d never suffered a true loss due to strikes prior to that, but even his latest streak of results apparently won’t deter him.
