Diego won that fight cause he has enourmous amounts of endurance. The kid just doesnt get tired. Karo was gassed. He had some nice throws but nothing that proved to damaging, Like a tooth getting knocked out. Diego won atleast 2 rds in my eyes and maybe a third. Karo was out of it in rd one after that punch that cut him right below his eye. He was looking for the ref to stop it to check it but it never happened.

Lister fight was alright I agree with everyone saying they were gassed..Lister is just incredible on the ground and really needs to work on his stand up and he will move up fast. Sasaki is just so calm on the ground.

Many fighters would have been choked out multiple different times throughout that match. I was pretty impressed by his ground defense.

Heard Lister saying he dropped from 210 to 185...He definitely gassed hard midway through the 2nd round. I'm a big Lister fan and it's always nice to see the master of submission at work but that last fight looked real bad. I think once he drops the weight gradually he'll be all good. Some boxing work is definitely needed for Lister to make his game more complete.
The Diego/Karo fight...Man I was really pulling for Karo to finally get Sanchez off his high horse and give him some beat down. Karo had some nice throws but he also gassed in the third round. It was really close the first 2 rounds but gotta give Diego props for his superior conditioning. I was surprised to see Tito in Karo's corner, are they buds?

They've been training together. Saw it on this article. Not sure how long that has been going on for though.

Great article...I wonder if they'll throw Diego at the winner of the Hughes/St.Pierre fight...One of my co-workers was saying he heard some rumors that they may make Diego fight St.Pierre instead of having St.Pierre fight Hughes later this year. Anyone else hear of this? It's probably just rumor and gossip.

No way. GSP/Hughes would be a main event, diego GSP would be dissapointing. That would be a total mismanagement of talent. Do GSP/Hughes, if GSP wins give hughes a rematch, if hughes loses the rematch give diego a shot, if hughes wins the rematch set up another rematch lol, if GSP loses this match give diego a shot. That'd be the way to milk it properly

St. Pierre has a groin pull and may not fight Hughes. Penn may replace him....

That's what I would like to see. Diego is climbing, but he still isn't in the same class as Hughes, GSP, or Baby J.

I'd like to see Diego/Koscheck re-match. Did I really just say that?
