I often wonder if Diego gets too little credit because he is such a phenomenal weirdo. Prior to his two decision losses - one a unanimous against Kos; the other a split against Fitch - he was 17-0, and currently has a 21-2 record. He hasn't necessarily fought what I would consider the absolute best competition, but it has been fairly tough. I am liking Diego more and more lately.

I do think he needs to be stronger in the LW division though. His cuts seem to leave him a little weak as he even said after the fight with Guida.

I definitely agree, and that is something I stated before as well. He was average as a WW in terms of strength, and rather than import some of that strength, his strength loss seems to be proportionate to his weight loss; he is, more or less, now average in terms of strength as a LW. With some strength and conditioning, though, I think Diego could do some damage. Oh, and some improvements to his guard.

no, i do believe people remember his streak and know hes good. the media does make him look werid by saying hes regrouping himself and all this.

Yeah, as much as I get irritated at seeing him win, he is great fighter. I think Dana wants someone to take out BJ real bad and was probably happy as hell Diego moved down. Assuming he didn't go to Diego with the idea in the first place. If Ken can't put the spurs to Bj, I think Diego will for sure. It be nice to first see a knock out from him at this weight.

I know people with family from Northwestern New Mexico. They are interesting people to say the least, so I am not at all surprised that Sanchez is so eccentric. People in that part of the country are very unique in their history and how they live their lives.
I enjoy watching Sanchez fight though because he is so intense and optimistic. He seems like he was probably that odd, little dweeb of a kid in middle school that would just go off on you unexpectedley if you bad mouthed him.

Middle school possibly...
He told Stephen Bonnar that he used to hide in the bushes at frat houses and jump out at the last second and knock people out and take off running. He wasn't the sensitive kid that his family thought they had...
Stephen's stories were a lot more cool... he said that most guys at bars took him as some pretty boy and would start sh!t with him and he would end up showing them otherwise.
