Gilbert Melendez-Diego Sanchez On Deck For Late 2013 UFC Event

According to a report by, lightweights Gilbert Melendez and Diego Sanchez could be headed for a collision later this year.

Melendez, the former Strikeforce champion, was bested by Benson Henderson earlier this year in his Octagon debut. Sanchez, meanwhile, is back at lightweight after a 2-2 run at welterweight.

On his Twitter page recently, Melendez asked the fans who they wanted to see him match up with, and Sanchez was a popular choice. Nothing has been confirmed by the UFC, though fall appears to be likely.
