Looked like poor sportsmanship on Diego's part to me.

Yeah, I watched it live and was surprised Diego did that. It has now turned from childish shots at each other on the internet to complete disrespect for the other. It was very poor sportsmanship on Diego's part but at least Koscheck didn't take it over the top. I now have more respect for Koscheck.

either poor sportsmanship,or a smart gameplan.....looks to me like he really wants Koscheck to stand with him....plus i think Diego is mentally tougher and that much emotions and adrenaline in front of 20.000 people is harsh on your conditioning...regardless of your conditioning in training


i have a feeling Diego will KO him in the 1st with a knee....but im still gonna pick Diego for UD in my "event picks"

Man I can't wait for this fight, they didn't need all this drama to sell this one... everyone was already hyped for it. Interesting to see how all the added emotion helps each fighter.

I thaugt Koscheck was going to fall off the stage and break his leg or something. Koscheck throws a hard overhand right, but he throws it wildly. If he chooses do stand with Diego he will get KO.

Diego looked in better shape than ever....and Koscheck looked scared..

i hope Diego wins since i picked him to win on this site,but if it wasnt for that i really dont care who wins.....i just respect the winner(as a fighter at least..)

Yeah it sure was. I think Kos has got in his head. But I wan't Diego to win since I bet on him, and am not a real big fan of Koschek.

It was Sanchez building the fight up with his usual antics... Is it me or does Sanchez look a bit like Justin Timberlake?

Don't like either one personally, but they are great fighter's . I hope they beat eachother up and Diego pulls out the win, since I picked and bet on him.

I think alot of people are overlooking Kos. His standup, submissions, and his gnp have improved by leaps and bounds since TUF imo!

ive picked diego on here, but i really hope kos pounds the shit out of him for the full fight, then diego pulls out a sub from the bottom in the last 20 secs, that way i win my bets and i get to see diego get pummeled. Perfect.
