Former Ultimate Fighter winner Diego Sanchez will remain at welterweight for the time being according to an announcement Sanchez made through his MySpace account earlier today:
Thank you all so much for your on going support and patience, I will be back in the ring really soon. So to answer ALL the questions about when, where, who and at what weight. Here you go. I will know by Feb. who I will be fighting. Probably Vegas, but site not decided. Whoever UFC puts in front of me, does not really matter, I will be ready! 170lbs. Hope this helps.
Sanchez announced that he would consider a possible move to the lightweight division following his loss to Jon Fitch at UFC 76 last year.
Touch of gloves to MMA Mania for the find.
