Emmanuel Sanchez surprised by Marcos Galvao fight offer, wants fight performances to do his talking

The co-main event of Friday’s Bellator 175 will be a featherweight bout as Emmanuel Sanchez will face former Bellator bantamweight champion Marcos Galvao on the fight card coming from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

Sanchez (14-3) is considered one of the top featherweights currently in Bellator and has won six of his eight fights in the promotion. He is coming off a majority decision win against former World Series of Fighting featherweight champion Georgi Karakhanyan and he is 4-1 in his last five fights.

During last week’s episode of “The MMA Report Podcast,” Sanchez was a guest on the podcast to preview his fight on Friday against Galvao in the co-main event of Bellator 175.
