He looked good last night considering he didn't even make weight. I think this would be an awesome fight

I think Diaz would have schooled the Sanchez that showed up last night. I'd rather see Diego fight someone closer to the middle of the pack. Someone like Edson Barboza or Jamie Varner

He shouldn't be asking for anything after missing weight and then losing to Gomi.

Disagree. I thought he looked horrible. He barely won the 1st round and Gomi schooled him for the last 2. The fact that anyone could even begin to think he won that fight just blows me away.

Nate would wreck the Sanchez that fought last night. I'm still pissed about my Gomi-Wanderlei parlay, that was gonna pay off real sweet....

He got a gift last night, IMO round 1 was close, but rounds two and three were all Gomi. I had it 30-27 Fireball Kid. I'd give him a surging Rafael Dos Anjos...a guy who could use a big name under his belt, against a fighter (Sanchez) who may have reached his peak at the young age of 31.

Agreed Budge, Diego vs Varner would be fun

The way Gomi was able to pressure, and frustrate Diego with his boxing leads me to believe that Nate would ko him rather quickly. Honestly the Diego that took out Nick was a relentless ground and pound wrestler, the Diego that showed up in his last five fights thinks he is some sort of Mexican boxer. He has gone too far away from what made him a success.

I've always enjoyed watching Diego fight but he hasn't been the same since he got beat down by BJ, he doesn't have that edge anymore.

sanchez did not look very good. im sure im one of the only people that thought he did in fact win that fight and did not rob gomi. that being said, he looked slow and clumsy IMO. if he doesnt do something drastic he'll never survive the current LW division.

Nate's already fighting Josh Thompson. Which should be an amazing fight.

Agreed on Varner v Diego.

I actually agree, I thought the same about Pulver and Stevenson as well. I'm currently debating whether the same happened to Kenny and Sherk..
