hopefully Sanchez punches the air a bunch of times and they score him points for it.

Just saw the Gomi fight again. Every time I watch a Sanchez fight I come away thinking he is a worse fighter. Melendez should be like a 6 to 1 favorite.

Yeah, he looked absolutely awful in the Gomi fight. It was completely mind boggling. I'm hoping his excuse after that fight is legit and we see a different Diego here. If he does lose, people shouldn't hate on him too much because Gilbert did just lose a split decision to the current lightweight champion. I guess it would depend on how badly Diego gets beaten if he does.

Really hoping Diego can make something happen here.

When I watch that fight everyone screams his cut was hard. I saw no real cardio issue. He just has terrible striking. You can see what he is going to throw from a mile away. His hands are just charging hooks that are slow. He has no power. His kicks are decent. But his hands are terrible. And his defense is worse. He failed to take Gomi down many times and the times he did take him down, Gomi got RIGHT back up.

My dislike of Sanchez stems from the same dislike I have for Guida these days. They punch at air and it is scored for some reason. Sanchez is the better grappling version of Leonard Garcia. In fact, Garcia at least makes punching at air look good.

This was Gomi we are talking about here too. He basically lost in every aspect of that fight to a maybe not even top 20 LW. Think what Melendez is going to do to him with his patient striking.

Same here. Diego hasn't looked the same for some years but i hope the move down to 155 has helped him.

Help him? Did you not see the Gomi fight? Sanchez is slow. His size advantage did nothing as he couldn't even get Gomi down or keep him down. He looked like straight ass. Sanchez is Leonard Garcia. People just don't know it yet it seems.

This fight is going to be awesome, or at least has the potential to be. Both guys usually have high paced fights always move forward. They both have decent standup but Gil has the advantage and on the ground I think they are pretty even. Looking forward to this!

Good potential for a FOTN. Sanchez is a challenger and Melendez is champion material. I expect Melendez to win this fight by decision but he wont stop Sanchez because of his willpower.
