He got hit with a big knee at the beginning of the fight, plus hathaway is legit.

Should be a decent fight, but I'm betting Diego will get tooled on the feet and controlled on the mat. Both guys will be angry as hell coming off losses, but I think Thiago will focus that anger more intelligently. Diego may revert to his YES mantra over and over, but just like in the Penn fight it'll go away the first time he gets punched in the face.

Diego has never shyed away from any foe. Bj whooped his ass, the doctor stopped that fight! the fifth rnd no less. Also I think Diego is going into a dangerous fight with Paulo. Both guys are very skilled and very determined. I am not picking a winner here but am leaning toward a Diego ud

I was kinda hoping that diego wins this fight also he is a warrior.

this is exactly what i would have said before diego fought hathaway, but after seeing him look so sluggish and crappy in that fight i just dont know what to expect from him. the day of the weigh ins is going to be the day i can pick the winner, because if diego is soft i will not pick him.

Maybe Diego gassed from his intense staredowns. I mean, sooner or later the guy is going to pop a blood vessel in his head from trying to look so mean in the staredown.

On a serious note, I think the reason Diego has struggled is the same reason fighters like Swick and other early TUF fighters are not on top of their game.I think they peaked already and the other fighters are catching up. I really haven't seen a vast improvement from Diego or Swick like I have with Kenny Florian.

I just think the competition is getting tighter at the top of the divisions and these once dominant fighters are not all as dominant as they once were. Diego has struggled a bit since stepping up in competition. Even some of his recent wins are against guys that are on slides or couldn't stay with the UFC.

I just think that Diego is going to be one of those fighters that will dominate the lower tier fighters, but might be 50:50 with the top ten fighters in the division.
