The Diego of old perhaps (you know, the one who could actually utilize his wrestling). But the Sanchez we've been seeing lately is a shell of his former self. You can't honestly sit there and tell me that the Sanchez who fought last night wouldn't get creamed by Nate. I mean, let's put all of the BS aside... Sanchez flat out lost to Gomi, who was destroyed by Nate. I don't normally embrace MMA math, but there's no question who the better striker is, regardless of pace and cardio - which Nate Diaz has for days. If Diego is dumb enough to stand and trade with Nate, and he might not be given the choice because his wrestling truly has deteriorated, he will get battered.
