    The Ultimate Fighting Championship has released the full fight card for the Feb. 21 UFC 95 event in London. The main event features Diego Sanchez in a lightweight battle against Joe Stevenson.

    UFC 95 will be televised on a same-day tape delayed basis on Spike TV, featuring Sanchez's 155-pound debut. Following the first two losses of his career – against Josh Koscheck and Jon Fitch – Sanchez won back-to-back victories at welterweight before deciding to drop down a class. Stevenson has struggled recently, losing two of his three most recent bouts, and will be looking to the Sanchez fight to get back on track.

    Other bouts scheduled for the Spike TV broadcast include a defining middleweight bout between top contenders Nate Marquardt and Wilson Gouveia, Josh Koscheck welcoming Brazilian Paulo Thiago to the Octagon, Demian Maia putting his undefeated streak on the line against former WEC light heavyweight Chael Sonnen, and Brit Dan Hardy against former IFLer Rory Markham.

    UFC 95 Main Card Bouts:
    -Diego Sanchez (#8 Welterweight in the World)* vs. Joe Stevenson in a lightweight bout
    -Josh Koscheck (#4 Welterweight in the World)* vs. Paulo Thiago
    -Nathan Marquardt (#4 Middleweight in the World)* vs. Wilson Gouveia
    -Chael Sonnen vs. Demian Maia
    -Dan Hardy vs. Rory Markham

    UFC 95 Preliminary Bouts:
    -Junior dos Santos vs. Stefan Struve
    -David Baron vs. Per Eklund
    -Justin Buchholz vs. Terry Etim
    -Neil Grove vs. Mike Ciesnolevicz
    -Paul Kelly vs. Troy Mandaloniz

    Yeah maybe, though if it doesn't end in the first or mid second I don't know how Diego will do with the cut. I mean, he started as a middleweight on TUF and you know Joe Daddy can go 3 rounds hard cause it's his class.

    I think I'm taking Stevenson, I dont think Sanches should stay LW

    Unless he just comes out and destroys Stevenson, then I'd eat my words

    Sanchez was 198 lbs at Christmas - he said that in the press conference.

    43 pounds in 2 months. :wtc::wtc::wtc:

    I have a feeling Diego is going to look like Brandon Vera when he tried cutting to 205. I'll take Joe daddy.
