Great fight!

I feel bad for Joe 'Daddy' though. He's fought some tough people recently and Diego is gonna add another loss to Joe's record here.

I think that Stevenson is overrated. I don't think Sanchez will be able to compete with the top lightweights like Kenny Florian, Sean Sherk, or Penn. I know Sanchez beat Florian but that was at 185, Florian would beat Sanchez now.

wow, great fight...two guys that love to push it....joe i think its one of the top 10-15 lightweights in the world....but, diego is a relentless and i think he's gonna tear up the 155 division....i already have him in my top 5 without even seeing him fight...and thats saying something since i dont like diego..ha...joe daddy is tall order for his fight at 155 tho, see how the weight issues affect him...if he gets by joe daddy, then i think he deserves a title shot or title eliminator fight (of course after florian gets his shot).....maybe event down the road we will see a sanchez-florian rematch too

THis was the first thought in my head when I read this post. I feel bad for Joe Daddy too. I'm also sort of surprised there not giving Diego someone who is a smaller LW right off the bat. Joe Daddy is one of the bigger/stronger LW's out there. THis will be a great fight regardless, especially with Joe wanting to get back on track and Diego making his first (as far as I know) big weight cut.

The first cut to 155 is probably gonna take something out of Diego, and Stevenson is going to push the pace. I like Stevenson 2nd rnd Submission.

Another loss for Daddy. I hope it doesn't knock him out of the UFC. It'll be interesting to see how Diego is at 155.

Sad to see, but Joe is becoming the stepping stone of the LW division. Stevenson is a really good fighter, but he's just lacking in too many areas to become a champion.

Diego is bigger, the better striker, the better wrestler, and the better BJJ tactician. This is a sports betters dream. A one sided fight, but the line falls pretty close to even.

why not? wrestlers are his achilles heel, he could do nothing with sherk or diego and likely nothing can change that, a florian vs bj fight wouldnt even be close

I think Daddy takes this one. UD or early sub.

I hate Diego I like Joe, but I think Joe Daddy is going to be crying for his mommy in this one.
