Sanchez vs. Pearson set for June 7 in Albuquerque...
Seeing Albuquerque hero Diego Sanchez fighting in his hometown on the UFC Fight Night card on June 7 was a wish made by all his fans, and they will get that opportunity, as "The Dream" has verbally agreed to meet British star Ross Pearson at Tingley Coliseum.

The bout is Sanchez' first at home since May of 2004, and it's likely to be an emotional night for the always fiery ABQ native.
