Sixteen years after they argued and almost came to blows over asparagus heads on the legendary first season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Stephan Bonnarand Diego Sanchez will be on the same team at UFC 253.
Bonnar, who last fought in 2014, will corner Sanchez (30-12 MMA, 19-12 UFC) for his welterweight fight against Jake Matthews on Saturday. The fight tops the pay-per-view event’s preliminary card portion.
Sanchez announced the news in a recent interview with MMA reporter James Lynch.
“The world and the universe goes full circle,” Sanchez said. “We came full circle. This is my boy and he’s going to be supporting me (and) helping me. I’ve got another cornerman.”
Did Stephan Bonnar see UFOs in the Albuquerque mountains? “Beyond a shadow of a doubt.”
