The UFC has officially announced a welterweight fight between Diego Sanchez and UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes. The promotion did not announce any details for the fight, but they did indicate that it would take place this fall.
Sanchez is coming off a high controversial decision victory over Martin Kampmann. Despite being soundly out struck according to both Fight Metric and CompuStrike, Sanchez walked out of the cage with a unanimous decision victory at UFC Live 3.
Hughes, who is widely considered one of the best welterweight fighters of all time, went 2-1 in 2010. He defeated Renzo Gracie and Ricardo Almeida before being knocked out in the rubber match against rival B.J. Penn.
