This is a funny, but important, difference that you touched on. Alessio was trying not to get submitted and he wasn't thinking about how he could have submitted or KO'd Diego.

I actually think that the fight would have gone to Alessio if he had worked a little bit harder to get Diego's hooks out, but there's no use whining now.
I would love to see sanchez v parysian, because I think that Karo does everything that Diego does, and I think Karo does it better. I definitely think that Karo has better subs, better takedowns and better striking.
