UFCThe Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed martial arts organization, recognized as the largest MMA promotion in the world. The UFC is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and is owned and operated by Zuffa, LLC. This promotion is responsible for solidifying the sport's postion in the history-books.
UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.
And here I thought I was the only one who thought Diego was greatly overated and living off his TV popularity. The fight against Allessio was quite one sided and not in favor of the winner of the fight.
Location: Ken Shamrock the greatest coach of all time
don't claim to know exact scoring methods of UFC.... but Alessio fighting diego sanchez.... it was like watching Ali dance aroud Sonny Liston... he blocked every chute he attempted.... i dont see how that one ref gave all three rounds to diego.... is he living off of his TV popularity... would like to hear everyones opinion
Sanchez took his back and got a take down..He was also pushing the action
Diego Sanchez is over hyped like anyone else that wins Ultimate Fighter. His first matches while coming to UFC such as Kenny Florian and Brian Gassaway were great domination but now he is over hyped. That match against Alessio he should have lost and they gave him decision because he's UFCs golden boy. I hope Parisyan beats him at UFC 62 (rumors have circulated this) but I doubt it because I believe he will win by unanimous decision once again by those judges.
I have been impressed with Kenny Florian since TUF and not impressed with Sanchez. It would be interesting to see a rematch of the Sanchez/Florian match. Maybe it would end the same way, maybe Florian opens him up with an elbow.
