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.
I don't ever remember him missing weight before, I expected him to trash Gomi and he didn't but I think his next performance will be better, he had not cut that amount of weigh in a long time and to do it in a foreign country can be disastrous.
I think he can be top ten and I think he's a bad match up for Nate but he'll clearly have to be better than he was last night.
