Conor McGregor challenges Diego Sanchez after disqualification win

“Conor McGregor vs. Diego Sanchez"

Shortly after the co-main event at UFC Rio Rancho ended, Diego Sanchez, who won his fight via disqualification, was challenged by Conor McGregor.

The Ultimate Fighter season 1 winner Diego Sanchez returned to action last night, taking on explosive Brazilian Michel Ferreira. In the third and final round, Perreira landed an illegal knee to a downed opponent, which lost him the fight via disqualification. Sanchez put in a solid effort, and caused a reaction from none other than Conor McGregor. The Irish superstar took to Twitter to tease a fight with the TUF 1 winner.

“Conor McGregor vs. Diego Sanchez,” McGregor wrote in a tweet that was later deleted.

This is not the first time that he has challenged Sanchez. In 2014 McGregor teased a bout with the UFC veteran at UFC 180 ini Mexico. However, the bout never came to fruition.

“I am fighting @DiegoSanchezUFC in Mexico, November 15th,” McGregor wrote. “He spoke a big game. Now he will pay with his career. VIVA LA EIRE!!!”

McGregor returned to the UFC at UFC 246 in January of this year. The event saw McGregor finish fan favourite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone via strikes in just 40 seconds. McGregor used an array of strikes and kicks, as well as some well-placed shoulder strikes in the clinch to secure victory. With the disqualification win, Sanchez has now won three out of his last four fights.
