wow he really did wreck him! i hadnt seen Bielkheden before but believed what i heard about him being tough so picked Diego by UD - couldnt have been more wrong! Diego was always going to finish that guy, oh well, cant wait to see Diego fight next, hope its against Chris Wilson

Hate it when fighters tap out due to strikes, screws up the picks on here as they wont change the system for the better, he should just cover up and wait for the ref to stop it (which he should have doen by that point!), i know im not a fighter but if i was i wouldnt tap to strikes!

The whole "I am one with the Earth" thing about Diego annoys the piss out of me.

Diego looked great. I had him by UD, too, based on what I had heard from some guys who had trained with him (namely that his BJJ was too good to be subbed). When I saw Bustamante in Bielheden's corner I was reassured of that. But Sanchez is that new breed of grappler who uses aggressive wrestling to improve BJJ positioning and he just went to work. I don't think he will lose to anyone who is willing to work from the bottom against him.

Thanks for the video!

I would've liked to have seen some standup, but a gameplan is a gameplan.

Good call, well it would have been had it been TKO. Anyways, I had the same analysis of the fight as Cornish did. David had fought some bigger guys in the past and made Charles McCarthy tap out to strikes in the first round. Granted, Charles isn't the best fighter, but he is a big guy who fights at MW. Also, David has a great background in BJJ and trains out of BTT. I figured for sure the fight was going to the scorecards. Sanchez proved me wrong and ran through the guy! Damn, that was a dominating performance!

That was either super impressive or the guy was a can. I hope this is the motivation Diego needed.

It was hard to tell. The whole fight seem to hinge on Diego's first takedown.

not against Fitch or Koscheck

i am still upset Diego lost bc i wanted to see GSP annihilate that sob



He almost retired the night before the Kos fight, he had bad staph. They need to rematch. Fitch, he's just the best WW in the world IMO because he proved he takes every fight seriously. GSP hasn't defended the title once to prove he's the best.

If you ask me, Diego would beat GSP badly, maybe not in the 1st or 2nd, but that cardio is sick and GSP wouldn't be able to keep up. His chin is suspect to so I wouldn't be surprised if Diego KO'd him.

Congrats on Diego for killing all that horse crap that he should drop down. One of my favorite fighters defintely.

I love how a fighter loses by TKO for the first time in their career and they have a suspect chin. He took some good shots in that fight that would have put a lot of people down. He was never out though and he took a beating. When their next find rolls around and he ends up getting KO'ed by Serra, then I think you might be able to say he has a suspect chin. Yet, I think it would still be a stretch. Serra isn't known for taking people out with his fists, but the guy has some heavy hands and if he is able to connect they are going down.

As far as Diego beating GSP, it is a possibility, but I'd take GSP over Diego most definitely. I'd even go as far to say that GSP takes 8 or 9 fights out of 10. Diego looks to be back on track, but I don't think his cardio will help him get past GSP. It sure as hell didn't help him against Fitch and I don't see it helping him against GSP. GSP would win in impressive fashion, and control his way to a decision.

I'm not going off the Serra fight, he just hasn't been tested too often and Serra was the first do test it and he stopped him. The only other was an out of shape BJ who was no where as good as he was today.

As for Diego vs GSP, I'm talking a 5 round fight. I don't think GSP could take that non stop pressure that he will get in the 1st that will last until the final horn of the 5th. Just think Diego will outwork him.

I don't think so. I think he'll be less 11 pts in that event.

Yeah, I agree with you. It's just we know how unpredictable mma is.

I agree about that, but the only way Diego can impose is will against GSP is if he can take him down. I think Diego has a better chance of having a puncher's chance for a knockout than taking Georges down.

I agree...GSP has made the top wrestlers in the division look like amateurs. Diego's best chance would be to replicate his fight with Riggs, but even that's a long shot.

It should be noted that GSP has never faced anybody like Diego before who just keeps coming at him non-stop with amazing cardio. Diego is just as good of a grappler as GSP. Hits just as hard except GSP is more technical.

I say it before and I'll say it again. GSP is only dominant because of those long limbs because it makes it easier to sprawl and keep distance. As long as Diego keeps coming at him and closing that distance, I really think he could take it. Same with Fitch except he's not as aggressive but he's strong enough to get GSP down.

Gsp would go for the takedown dude, same strategy as the Koscheck fight. He's faced much better Bjj(Bj Penn) than Diego brings so he wouldnt get subbed either.

Yeah but Diego is too explosive and too much like a pitbull for GSP to be able to just lay on him like GSP did Kos and Karo. I don't think he's as strong as Fitch to pin him down too.

Yeah, but BJ would either KO or submit all of them, wait after BJ mauls Sherk then he comes up in weight and claims his belt back..haha

WAR PENN!!!
