The thing with Diego is. He's really not that good. He looks EXACTLY THE SAME as he was in TUF. How crazy is that. In fact he was better then because he was ripped and had super cardio. He did beat Nick Diaz after all.
Diego at 155 lost a lot of muscle mass. But his striking is almost rudimentary. Guard high, moves quickly, but moves forward or backwards with his his head high always getting tagged when he does his right jab, left cross takedown routine. He does that over and over.
Having said that...Diego fights purely on HEART. That's his strength. If it were a five rounder I'd probably go with Diego w/ a split cuz Gilbert would just get tired of tagging him then Diego with a busted up face would land takedowns in the fourth and fifth...roflz.
I would very much like to see another Diego vs Guida type of fight tonight though. Just real messy...scrambling...knees, punches, elbows, etc. That would be a great warm up leading to the MAIN EVENT!
