Just a thought.....

I was thinking of what the UFC has up next for Roger Huerta and I came across a pretty sick idea. Have him fight fellow latino Diego Sanchez in Diego's LW debut! How sick would this fight be. I think this would be an action packed FOTY candidate for sure. Does anyone else love this matchup and think it could happen??

Ill throw in a poll, cuz Im curious who you guys think would win.

If the UFC ever goes to Mexico live, this oughta be on the card. I think its a great idea, but I'm not sure it'll happen. It'd be a great fight though. I think Huerta could hold his own early and Diego would overwhelm him late for the win.

Thats what I was thinking. Even a Socal location would be great. There is a huge Latino fanbase there and would get alot of hype. Not to mention these guys styles make for a salivating fight!!

i agree i think if huerta could catch diego early he could win, but as the fight goes on longer i would give the advantage to diego.

I think if they went to mexico this is VERY likely to happen, otherwise its a possibility but theres so many different fights that are possible i dont know if it'd happen otherwise.

Yea I think Diego would eventually catch Huerta in soemthing. Diego is a sick sick grappler, I dont think alot of people realize how good he really is on the gorund.

I'd have to go with Huerta. But it depends on which Deigo comes to the fight

Catching Diego is easier said than done in a sense where one big punch out of nowhere isn't gonna put him away. Koscheck was hitting him with some heavy punches and Diego was just taking it, the guys got a great chin. I'd say Diego would take this, he will be a large lightweight and you're right Jdun saying some people don't realize how good Diego really is on the ground. Yeah its true he lost to Fitch but he still had a good performance and it was Fitches superior strength and submission defense that got him the win in my opinion.

Which makes me wonder what kind of problems Sherk would pose for Sanchez. Huerta however, I'd say it would be a good first win for Diego at 155.
