Diego Sanchez Returns to Greg Jackson’s for UFC 121 Fight with Paulo Thiago

Following back-to-back losses to lightweight champ BJ Penn and John Hathaway, UFC welterweight Diego Sanchez has returned to Greg Jackson’s team in his native Albuquerque, New Mexico ahead of his return to the Octagon against Paulo Thiago at October’s UFC 121.

After leaving Jackson’s in 2007 following the arrival of Georges St-Pierre, The Ultimate Fighter 1 winner Sanchez (21-4) won four-straight over the likes of Joe Stevenson and Clay Guida to earn a shot at the lightweight title, but suffered a fifth-round TKO to Penn in December then dropped a unanimous decision to Hathaway in June in his return to 170-pounds.

Sanchez’s teammates at Jackson’s include Rashad Evans, Jon Jones, Keith Jardine, Clay Guida, Brian Stann, Joey Villasenor, and Melvin Guillard.
