Diego Sanchez, like many, had his eyes glued to see Benson Henderson take a close fight against Gilbert Melendez.
“After watching Benson Henderson’s performance against Gilbert Melendez, I must say, I wasn’t impressed,” said Sanchez on MMA Junkie Radio. “I see a lot of holes in his game and I feel like that belt’s there for the taking.”
For Sanchez to even think about a lightweight title shot, he must defeat whomever he’s given at UFC 164. No official opponent is known.
This year, Sanchez took a split-decision over Takanori Gomi in his return to lightweight. He did miss weight by two pounds.
UFC 164 is August 31 from the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI.
