Come next Wednesday, Diego Sanchez will be taking on "The Juggernaut" Jake Ellenberger in what is likely a No. 1 contender battle for the welterweight strap, which will be hosted by the UFC's first endeavor on FUEL TV.
Sanchez earned his top-spot in the division with impressive decision victories over former contenders Paulo Thiago and Martin Kampmann.
The victory over the Dane was especially important, as both men garnered high praise for their all-out war, which had left Sanchez battered and visibly worse for the wear.
After three hard-fought rounds, Sanchez earned the contentious decision win, though many felt that Kampmann was robbed of the decision. Should Sanchez come out victorious, and Kampmann as well in his next tilt, how will a second bout between the two fan favorites pan out?
