Diego Sanchez, nicknamed Nightmare, is a Mexican-American Lightweight mixed martial artist. He was the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 1 middleweight title, defeating Kenny Florian by TKO on punches. He fought in the UFC's Welterweight division for most of his career, but moved down to Lightweight to fight Joe Stevenson at UFC 95 (a fight he won) after seeing Florian be a title contender when Sanchez had beaten Florian. He defeated Clay Guida at the Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale by split decision a few months later. He later got the first title shot of his career against BJ Penn at UFC 107, but was absolutely neutralized and lost by TKO in Round 5 due to a massive cut.
