Diego Sanchez and Gilbert Melendez to Meet at UFC 166

I guess the term “to meet” when it comes to UFC fighters might not be the best way to describe it, as they will be locking figurative horns in the cage and trying to hurt each other. That fight is set to go down at UFC 166 now, which will be in Houston on October 19th.

UFC 166 will be where Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos continue their endless series for the UFC Heavyweight Championship in this being their third bout. Diego Sanchez has been with the UFC since TUF 1 and has since been competing at Welterweight and Lightweight, unsuccessfully challenging for the Lightweight Championship against BJ Penn in an epic drubbing. Gilbert Melendez cut his teeth in Japan before becoming the Strikeforce Lightweight Champion before moving to the UFC and being defeated in his attempt at the UFC Lightweight Championship against Benson Henderson.
