you mean the hole in his leg that was "the size of a coffee cup" is gone. Hopfully his ptpm (Punches Thrown Per Minute *A stat that I just made up) will go up for a 0.70

wow i guess that rumor on sherdog was right haha..

hopefully sakurai improves his TD... hes had trouble with wrestlers

I don't think that it's fair saying that Sakurai isn't good against wrestlers because he lost to Hughes(while Matt was at the height of his dominance) & Sheilds...

Either way, Mach has been a different fighter since hooking up with Hume & AMC Pankration in 05... He's rejuvinated his fighting career and seemingly refocused himself...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say... A clean 1st rd KO for Sakurai

Really tough fight for Diego to take after coming off his first loss

I would say the coffee cup staph is the bigger concern than the fact that he lost a fight in which he took a total of 16 punches in 15 minutes.

At this moment I would chose Mach, but I really really like both fighters and if Diego proves he is 100% going in, I would be inclined to change my mind. However, the chances we know whether or not he is 100% are slim, because as I recall, no one knew he had staph going into the fight with Koscheck.
