Diego Sanchez vs. Mickey Gall in a welterweight contest has been added to UFC 235 on March 2.

Sanchez (28-11) is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Craig White at UFC 228 in September. Sanchez is the only member (and middleweight winner) of the first season of The Ultimate Fighter to still actively compete in the Octagon. He has defeated the likes of Kenny Florian, Nick Diaz, Clay Guida, Takanori Gomi, Ross Pearson, Jim Miller, and many others since joining the UFC in 2005.

Gall (5-1) made his UFC debut by defeating former WWE champion CM Punk (who was also debuting) via first-round submission back in September of 2016. Gall holds a notable Octagon victory over Sage Northcutt and most recently submitted George Sullivan in the first round in August.
