Diego by sub late in the 2nd, early in the 3rd after a very competitive bout with Sanchez getting the better of the stand-up and Kos getting some good takedowns.

KOS by KO!!!! I hope this guys bang it out. Kos has been gettin some awesom stand up lately. See his fight with Goulet? He dropped him with a right hook. And Diego well he is coming off of a KO victory over Riggs.
Kos KO 3:18 of round 2
Calling it right here!

Kos. Hes better than Sanchez at everything except for jits. Which is why its going to be important for him to get top position if Sanchez wants the fight to be on the ground. His wrestling is better, his stand up is better, so he should be able to control the fight, or lay and prey if he has to.

This one is going to go to the ground pretty quickly. They might start out banging due to rivalry they have, but the first one to get stung is going to shoot.
Diego pretty much has this one wrapped up. he has the experience, the skill, and the record behind him to prove this.
Koshcheck is a good fighter with proven skills on the ground. Just not as good as Sanchez.

Sanchez, unanimous decision.

Oh man, I have been wanting to watch this fight for a while. If it wasn't for the TUF 5 deal, I think Diego would already be fighting GSP for the title but whatever. I know Diego likes to fight and I doubt he wants time off before a title match up, so im not surprised that he took this fight even though he has already proved himself with his 6 wins over some tough competition. I would have to pick Diego for this fight. He is constantly surprising me, and I know he will put together some crazy gameplan to neutralize Josh Koscheck. Although, it is possible for Josh to win a lay and pray decision over Diego, but not likely imo.

Good fight I'll bet. My money says Sanchez beats KOS again! This time before it goes to decision.

Kos by UD

If all else fails, Koschek will most likely resort to his wrestling and GNP his way to a UD

More like LNP for a split decision.

Koscheck has not done anything in the UFC yet that makes me thing he has any chance vs Sanchez whatsoever. What exactly has he done/beat that makes any of you guys think that he has since the last fight which finished with a black and blue Koscheck who could barely stand up.

Since then Sanchez has been beating top WW contenders whilst Koscheck has been decisioning gatekeepers and no hopers.

In addition it's a bad match up of styles and could lead to a pretty boring fight.
