I hope they Shogun him and gift him a title shot at Pettis, I think he matches up very well against Anthony and could beat him.
Oh God. I guess anyone with decent wrestling matches up well with Pettis. But Diego's wrestling is just that these days....average. He wouldn't be able to hold Pettis down at all. On the feet he would get brutalized by pin-point accuracy while he swings away like a goofball.

Sanchez is not a top 10 fighter. I don't want to see him gifted a title shot at all. He didn't even beat a washed up small Gomi.

My God. He would lose all 4 of those fights. If he wants McGregor he better fight him now before he gets a bunch better. Diego's last true win was in 2010 vs. Paulo freaking Thiago. He is the Leonard Garcia of the 155lb division.
