Sanchez is one of the legends of mixed martial arts. We know him for his uncompromising attitude. ‘The Nightmare’ is a fan favorite due to its approach to fighting. He started his journey in MMA in 2002 and had an 11-0 run before joining “The Ultimate Fighter”. He won the tournament and was signed for promotion. The former UFC lightweight title challenger maintained his unbeaten position and was 17-0 before suffering the loss for the first time.

Sanchez last entered the Octagon in September 2020, where he lost to Jake Matthews by unanimous decision. He was then released from promotion and currently holds a 30-13 record in his professional career. The UFC veteran will return in action in March against fellow UFC alumnus Kevin Lee.
