Sanchez: Those Are The Fights You Remember When Your Old
Diego Sanchez went to war last night against Martin Kampmann at UFC on Versus 3 and talked about his win post fight while getting cleaned up in the locker room:
"You know what, Iâ€™m feeling the pure ecstasy of having a war, you know what I mean? A lot of UFC fighters, we dream about going in there and finishing a fight in the first round, but itâ€™s the fights like I had tonight that, when youâ€™re an old man, youâ€™re like, Yeah, yeah, that was a war. When Iâ€™m like 65 I can call Martin Kampmann and be like, Remember when we threw those hooks in the ring? Those are the wars and the oneâ€™s you donâ€™t forget. Whether youâ€™re cut or, you know, you donâ€™t forget these no matter what, and theyâ€™re fun."
"The whole fight all I was thinking was, â€˜Itâ€™s going to land, itâ€™s going to land, itâ€™s going to land.â€™ I was planning on landing that right hook and dropping him. It landed a couple of times but he didnâ€™t drop. When it all comes down to it I kind of threw the game plan out the window and made it a street fight, and thatâ€™s what I did honestly."
"I promise Iâ€™m going to have a very fast recovery. Jesus Christ is going to heal me. Iâ€™m going to be back in the Octagon soon."
