I think Sanchez will beat Koscheck and then finally get a chance at the belt. What do you think?

I think Diego has the tools and the record to be considered a top contender, but I don't see how beating Koscheck would solidify #1 status.

I'd like to see him fight Hughes first then GSP (or the other way around depending on who's champ)

Beating Koscheck doesn't help Diego at all, people will still question his ability against top 5 opponets.

But the way GSP cut through Hughes like butter was totally unaceptable. Something is off with Hughes mental state and motivation. I wish Hughes had a better opponent lined up than Lytle so that we can see if Hughes is still mentally fit and still motivated to try to reclaim the belt once again. My hunch is that Hughes is no longer a contender. My hunch is that his hunger is gone. As such I don't see a point in Diego fighting Hughes at all.
Beating Koscheck matters because they are both from the Reality TV camp and they're both #1 on that level and they're both hungry. The mental game can make the difference between a win and a loss. Once the smoke clears on these two, then the winner should totally fight GSP.
Otherwise who should GSP fight next?
And othewise who should Diego fight next?
And who is in this Top 5 you speak of?

I for one will question his ability untill he beats a top contender and stops trying to rack up his record.. I see right through what he's doing. Racking up records has been in the boxing game for many years, It gets you a big fan base and more $$ when you do fight a top contender. Sanchez should get into the marketing business, cause thats what he is!

Taking a fight against Karo was him just trying to rack up his record? I admit, some of his opponents have been less than great, but imo he has shown that he will fight anyone they put him up against. By the way, he doesn't make the fights and has said from the very beginning he wants a title shot. If you say him wanting to fight Hughes or GSP is trying to rack up his record, you have no clue what you're talking about.
