It sounds as if Diego Sanchez has officially signed a contract to fight in March at UFC 171.
Sanchez posted his own “breaking news” on Twitter recently, confirming his plans to be on the March 15 fight card from Dallas.
He is expected to meet Myles Jury from the American Airlines Center on a night when Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler meet for the vacant UFC welterweight title.

Sanchez (24-6) is coming off a decision loss to Gilbert Melendez last October. That fight took place in Texas as well, going down in Houston. He is 3-2 in his last five overall.
Jury (13-0) has scored four straight victories inside the Octagon, including two last year over Mike Ricci and Ramsey Nijem. In facing Sanchez, he will continue a string of UFC bouts against former Ultimate Fighter competitors.
