Finally we might have Sanchez's opponet.
Rising welterweight contender Jon Fitch (14-2 MMA, 6-0 UFC) could put his spotless UFC record on the line with a fight against Diego Sanchez (17-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) at UFC 76.

Well eventually one of these Diego vs _____ has to be true. I hope its this one, I'm a Fitch fan, and would love nothing better than to see him pummel Diego.

Once again, with the disclaimer "If this is true".

If this is true, is looks like Karo is the odd man out. Who the hell does he face unless its the GSP/Kos loser down the road like in Nov/Dec?

Maybe BJ, but it's a step down for him, I'm sure he'd rather have GSP/Hughes rematches.

How is fighting the ex-champ a step down?

BJ fighting Karo would be a step down for BJ, compared to fights with GSP or Hughes

About time they give Fitch a fighter! I know, I know, he fought Burkman(whatever) but this is really going to show how serious of a fighter he is in the welterweight division...and guess what???


I think he wins.....

Well, you can't really step up from GSP and Hughes.....Karo would be the next best thing unless KOS beats GSP and who wants that?? Not I.

There's been so many rumors for Diego's next fight... no Diego fight will be posted again until UFC.com announces it. Not sure if him/his camp's purpose is to generate some buzz to compensate for his last "performance", but I'd be surprised if this one has any more truth to it than his last 2 rumor'd "next fights" (Sakurai, then Penn).

As do i Kos is the best pure wrestler in the UFC. period. he cant out wrestle and take down any one in the welter weight division. That makes him VERY dangerous.

No way is Kos the best pure wrestler in the UFC.
Sean Sherk is the best pure wrestler in the UFC.

Kos' collegiate wrestling record definately outshines sherk's, his wrestling record went 42-0 and was a a four-time NCAA Division I All-American(placing 4-2-1-3 respectively).

and as far as fitch being untested, diego is definately fitch's toughest test to date, but it's not like he's been facing chumps since coming into the UFC... at all.

Alves is a legit top 20-15 WW in the world
Burkman is right on the edge IF NOT in the top 10 at 170.
Kuniyoshi Hironaka was coming off of a win over charuto verisimo and his only loss in recent memory (besides to fitch by decision) was to shinya aoki by cut.
Fioravanti and Carneiro are both guys that fought at 185 most of their careers and even in loss fight some very tough guys (A. Silva, Ryo Chonan, Gregory Bouchalegam, Chris Leben, etc.)

I see...it sounded as though you were stating it was a step down for Karo.

You may want to check your stats again! Kos has the best collegiate career in the UFC. As far as Greco Roman goes, Couture would be most decorated...soon to be matched by Hendo when he is official.

Kos is not a better wrestler than Sherk or Hughes. I could even say that Dan Henderson and Couture are better wrestlers than KOS...


Edit: I just noticed that a couple guys said the same thing I did...I read your post's after. My bad.

Who cares about collegiate record, I would say that right now Sherk is a better wrestler, Sherk was in college 10 years ago, he is 10 times the fighter/wrestler he was then....
