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.

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

Sanchez sat on Alessio's back for like 2 minutes and he couldn't get a submission. The guy clearly needs work.

I'm not saying that he won't be good, but if he tried that on a really good fighter, he would get his ass slammed and KOd.

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.
