OMAHA, NEBRASKA: SANCHEZ VS. ELLENBERGER
Multiple time ‘fight of the night winner’ Diego ‘The Dream’ Sanchez is looking to make another run at the title. This welterweight fighter dropped to 155 lbs. for a few fights, lost a lightweight title fight against BJ Penn, but is now back at 170 lbs. were he feels most comfortable. With a renewed drive and a more determined focus on the welterweight division, Sanchez is on the hunt for another title shot. A long standing member of Jackson’s MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, ‘The Dream’ is one of the most experienced, well-rounded and innately talented fighters in the UFC. Diego has the mental edge and always believes he is going to win. This is most evident in his ring entrance, as his focus and self-affirmation chanting is legendary. Winning season one of TUF was the start of a meteoric rise that saw Sanchez win 5 straight, before losing back to back fights against Josh Koscheck and Jon Fitch. A few fights later, Diego would make a run for the lightweight title, but come up short against BJ Penn. Sanchez has returned to welterweight, where he feels he is more suited, and is looking to continue his winning streak. His opponent, Jake Ellenberger is riding a 5 fight win streak and is coming off a first round KO of former UFC welterweight title contender, and former Strikeforce champ, Jake Shields. Diego will be up for the challenge and is ready to keep on winning and move one step closer to title contention. Hayabusa is excited to partner with Diego ‘The Dream’ Sanchez and wishes him the best of luck in this pivotal fight.
Stipe Miocic is ready to make an impact in the UFC heavyweight division. In his Octagon debut, Stipe stood for three rounds with Joey Beltran and won a unanimous decision. Now that he has that pivotal first UFC fight behind him, Miocic is ready to get down business and keep on winning. Undefeated in is MMA career, Stipe prepares to face off against fellow undefeated heavyweight Phil DeFries. DeFries is a solid grappler, but Stipe has great technical striking to go with an underrated wrestling game. Miocic, a former golden gloves champ, has finished 6 of his 7 fights by (T)KO and is one of the most dangerous up and coming fighters in the UFC heavyweight division. Look for Stipe to keep this fight on the feet and do what he does best, knock people out. Stipe Miocic chooses to train and compete in Hayabusa. Hayabusa is proud to partner with Stipe and wishes this rising star good fortune in his upcoming heavyweight showdown.
Hayabusa would also like to wish Jonathan Brookins and Ivan Menjivar the best of luck in their upcoming fights. These two athletes both choose to train and fight wearing Hayabusa. Hayabusa is expecting great things from these two warriors.
