pellegrino is VERY underrated, the guy is a top level lighweight imo, his fight with joe daddy proves that.
Exactly. His boxing is excellent, his sub defense is top notch, his cardio is top notch, his subs are excellent, and his wrestling is excellent.
He's got a lot of what it takes to be a great fighter, and he's balls to the wall. Compare that to Nate Diaz -
Subs top notch, sub defense top notch, cardio top notch, boxing o.k., wrestling o.k.
By no means am I saying Diaz is a slouch, but I give Pellegrino a big time standup and wrestling edge. Pellegrino will probably outbox Nate whlie avoiding the takedown for a standing KO. Whatever happens, this fight is a GREAT addition to the card and I feel that it's exactly the fight Pellegrino needs.
