Diego Sanchez: From Nightmare to the Dream

I've always been a Diego fan, its a shame he faded the way he did. I'm still bitter about his win over Gomi though ha. Its a shame he is going to get mauled against Gil

One of the few fighters whom I vehemently disliked initially. Then I realized this guy fights his heart out win or lose. His fights are usually very messy and bloody. Who can forget his quirky attitude.

He should be fighting the Diaz broz...STAT! They're going to brawl during the staredowns, press conference, inside the Octagon before + after, post conference, and most likely in the hospital...ahah!

Not a fan. I respect his heart. But his skills and in cage abilities are low. Similar to Guida.

He is basically Leonard Garcia with a mean face and more ground game. But nothing he does stands out. He brawls and gets beat to the punch all the time. He is the only guy who is awarded points for getting punched in the face, other than Leo of course.

I'm calling it now, Diego is going to drag Gil into a brawl and it will be real close. People will be arguing about it. Diego fights to the level of his opponents most of the time, aside from Penn he's always stepped up and taken it to guys he had no business hanging with on paper and he's lost to guys he should walk through.
