He will lose to Josh Koscheck on april 7th.
ha ha ha ha yeah koscheck beating a striker come on koscheck can only wrestle
I wouldn't call Diego a striker persay. He's probably going to get that rep amongst new fans (i'm not calling you a new fan so don't get mad at me.) because of his impressive KO against Riggs, but his bread and butter is wrestling and jiu jitsu. Diego's striking has MUCH improved but I don't see a lot of striking being a facto in the Koscheck fight. I also see the Kos fight going the distance. Unless Koscheck controls Diego all three rounds he will lose the decision.
If Hughes fights Diego and Hughes comes in and fights the way he fought before he sat in the la-z-boy that was the WW title and remembers what the feeling of attaining is as opposed to defending, he will stop Diego.
If, and most likely when, Diego beats Koscheck I think realistically his first loss will come at the hands of GSP. He's being groomed for a title shot and I'm sure the UFC wants him to remain undefeated so they can use the "undefeated phenom vs. reigining champ" headline. I'm actually surprised they threw Koscheck at him and I think a lot of people are underestimating him. My pick is Diego by U Dec. but I won't be surprised if I'm wrong.
