Honestly, watching Diego in grappling tournaments to the Ultimate fighter to going all the way he has today...these pics sadden me....
I have to wonder what these dudes think when they look in the mirror the next day. My brother was a fighter (RIP) and I only saw him get whipped once. I thought he might quit at the time but, as do these guys I imagine, he just took the time to heal, started training again, and forward he went.
It's that fighter mentality...not just anyone can do this. And not just the physical side...the mental toughness, drive, dedication, and stamina is just as critical.
We'll have to wait and see "what" Diego returns to the Octagon but my money is that he will come back in true warrior fashion and dominate most all of the 155 lb division.
But I believe he'll be back...it's what he is. And anyone who steps into the Octagon knows what chances he/she is taking.
