This summer will see one of the most important fighters in the history of the UFC come to Pictou.
That is no other person than Diego Sanchez.Sanchez is expected to headline the Chokes by the Ocean event holding on July 29 and at the Decoste Performing Arts Centre.
The fighter, who is more commonly known as The Nightmare, will be in the main event. He is expected to face Mike Wacker, a second-degree black belt who currently trains out of Black Hole Jiu Jitsu in Wappingers Falls, New York.
Sanchez began his fighting career back in 2001 as a mixed martial artist. However, his big break came in 2004 after he became one of the 16 competitors chosen to be in the first season of The Ultimate Fighter.
The Nightmare was able to scale through the middleweight tournament whilst also defeating Kenny Florian to become the season one winner alongside Forest Griffin.
They were part of the group that included the likes of Chris Leban, Stephen Bonnar,and Josh Koscheck.
