Sanchez Staying at Welterweight For Now

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.
