Diego Sanchez I think he has a match coming up soon but where has he been. After he won Spike show he just kinda disappeared.
He's actually had a few fights. I only know this because I'm watching for the fight where someone smashes in his punk mouth. His only "test" was against Nic Diaz a few months ago. He won on deciscion and only proved that he ain't ****. He couldn't close on a mediocre guy and lost some of his hype as a result.
Yeah, I'm waiting for Diego to get his face pounded in too. It's funny that Chris Leben, who didn't even win that show has fought the most legit guys, and is winning decisively. I think he's the best fighter to come out of that whole show.Originally Posted by BingeAndPurge
Soon as Diego steps it up he's going to lose big time. I think Diaz was a good opponent, but that was a bad style matchup. Soon as Diego fights Sherk, Trigg, GSP, Hughes, Miller, etc he'll get killed imo. In fact I hope he fights Sherk (my fav fighter), and gets ground and pounded into oblivion.
Diego destroyed diaz, just my opinion, untill he does get his face smashed I think hes a awesome fighter.
Wow a lot of hate for Diego. Not a big fan, but I thought he did very well against Diaz, who imho is a very good up and coming fighter. His ground game is very strong, but i would of course like to see him up against some tougher guys.
As for Diaz, I know he talks ****, but it brings a little something extra to the game
He's fighting John Alessio at UFC 58 I think. Should'nt be much of a test for him. Diego's a pretty damn good fighter, determined as hell. I don't like the guy much though. I loved it when Stephan Bonnar verbally destroyed him on TUF1.
What's going on with Sherk? Is he still fighting?Originally Posted by fbxdan
Go ahead and neg rep me whoever you are because I don't like Diego and think he's part of Dana's hype machine. He won his only "test" thus far by decision and didn't do any damage to Diaz at all. Until he beats a real name convincingly, he's going to get criticized. People do it to Arlovski, and they're doing it to these TUF guys. Deal with it. The kid talks too much **** for what little he's actually done.
I'm sure he is. He lost to GSP, but let's face it, GSP is a level above everyone else in that division. So that makes Sherk's only two losses to GSP and Hughes. Supposedly the UFC is opening back up their 155 division, so who knows maybe he'll go down there. I don't think he could cut that much weight though, he's a powerhouse and shredded. To get down to that weight he'd have to lose some muscle mass. I hope people don't count him out yet, he's a force to be reckoned with. I gotta root for the short man.Originally Posted by Sir Savage
Whoever is negging me, thats gay as ****. We're talking about fighters for the love of god. So gay
We disagreed, but it wasn't me. Have a few back on me.Originally Posted by GoFast
Not sure what you were watching but he did not destroy him. Yes he is a good fighter but doesnt undertsand that he got the easy road into the UFC. Most of the guys first fight comes on a 3 week notice or less as a fill in. If they do good (which they are not expected to) then you will see them more often. If not, then you never hear of again.Originally Posted by somewhatgifted
Diego needs to get butch slapped then we will see his true skills.
With that simple statement, Someone neg rep me, What a petty display. Diego rules mwuahahah hes the best, who gives a f&^K, just a conversation. Clearly DIaz got his ass handed to him, as a fighter myself I know what im saying, but you are also entitled to your opinion.Originally Posted by revodrew
Im not sure who neg. repped you and I dont think it was called for. It really doesnt matter to me if you fight or not, I still compete myself, and dont think he got his ass handed to him. Just my opinion, and I do think if it happened again, Diaz would knock him out. With contrasting styles, you never know. In the fight, Sanchez was the only one who was stunned, Diaz didnt capitalize, and that caused him to lose. Anyways, you are right, you have your thoughts, and I do mine. The neg rep, might have been a bit much for your statement though.Originally Posted by somewhatgifted
this is getting recockulous
I was just neg repped too by somewhatgifted. I have no idea why...
Dude Sean Sherk is a joke at 170. He is 5'6 and he is too small to be competing at 170. He needs to hope for a lightweight division ressurection and cut to 155. He would be a FORCE at 155.
Whoever says Diego proved he is horrible in that decision with Diaz, you are crazy dude, do you know ANYTHING about MMA? That was a classic mat war and Diego proved he had pretty solid grappling in that fight. Diego isn't good enough to compete with Hughes, BJ or GSP yet...but I say lets throw him in there with the test for all Welterweights and see how he does (Frank Trigg) my guess is he would beat him.
Diaz lost to Diego because of the weight difference. Diaz is another guy who will never do anything at 170 because all the fighters are just simply to big at 170.
Sherk is no joke at 170 bro. Just because he's 5'6" doesn't mean he can't fight. Hell, he gave your boy Hughes one hell of a close fight. Did you see when he picked up hughes, walked him across the octagon and slammed him? SICK! At 155 though, he would do much better. I think he'd dominateOriginally Posted by 502 Country Boy
Sherk is a joke at 170. Riiiight.
28-2, with those two losses (barely) coming from probably the top two welterweights in the world.
