UFC welterweights Diego Sanchez and Jake Ellenberger know they have a great stage to put on a show Wednesday evening in the main event of UFC on Fuel 1, the organization’s first full event on the FOX affiliated network.
Sanchez is making his return to welterweight, with hopes of securing another opportunity at UFC gold down the road.
“It really gets me excited to know I’m going in there with someone who’s going to go in there and try to take my head off,” Sanchez said in a newly released preview for the event.. “I love these kind of fights, that’s why I signed up.”
Ellenberger is coming off the biggest victory of his career, as he stopped Jake Shields last year.

MMATraining Take: Ellenberger could vault right near the top of the rankings with another decisive victory over Sanchez, while “The Dream” may need a big performance and at least one more win before making a claim to a title shot. Either way, this should be a war.
