UFC News: Diego Sanchez vs. Thiago Alves At UFC 89

UFC 89 is starting to fall together.  The show will for sure air on SPIKE and not on Pay Per view.  The fight will be headlined by a bout between middleweights Chris Leben and Michael Bisping.  In addition to that the card will also feature a welterweight match between Diego Sanchez and Thiago Alves.  It would seem from this match that a number one contender will be determined.

Thiago Alves dismanted UFC star Matt Hughes at UFC 85 in England in June.  Diego Sanchez look exceptional at the Ultimate Fight 7 Finale against Luigi Fiorvanti.  Dana did not say, but I would guess this would have huge implications for the title down the road.  B.J. Penn could throw a wrench in this as he said he gets the winner of St. Pierre vs. Fitch in December or January.  Also, you have to throw Josh Koscheck into the mix as well.  This should be a good match up though.
