diego is good, he'll get to be "great" in time. he needs to shut his mouth and pay his dues. yeah, he's fought a lot in KOTC and stuff, but the fact is, he's still got a way to go. give him the top guys in a line, work his way up. but i don't see him beating any champ any time soon!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

Diego is better than Kos. And thats taking nothing from Kos. His stand-up is not close to as good. Knocking out Goulet is nothing compared to exchanging jabs with a much taller fighter in Diaz and peppering his face all fight long. Kos is a good fighter but he wasn't fought ANYONE yet. Slate him to fight someone with some skill lvl before they get compared. It doesn't have to be Diaz or Karo. He needs a bigger test to see where he's at as fighter. I'd like to see him fight someone who is near the top of the division or that could give him a challenge. Josh Burkman, Joe Riggs, maybe even Josh Neer. I would love to watch Koscheck VS Joe Stevenson fight because the grappling would be phenomonal. It would be a wreslting clinic for the crowd.

John Alessio and Josh Koscheck are easy opponents, Diego didn't try against them. When he knows he has a chance at losing and is a really tough opponent, he will fight for his life like MMA1990 said, he nearly TKOd Karo Parisyan in 30 seconds at the beginning of the fight.

That, and Goulet has a chin made out of egg shells. I'd like to see Koscheck vs Diaz actually.

Diego sanchez beat the crap out of karo, anyone that thinks karo won are just in denial.

Hopefully diego fights bj penn or hughes because i dont think he can beat george, that guy is on another level.

Diego vs Karo was definetly best fight of the year and Diego definetly proved himself as a top level fighter in that fight. His striking has improved, his takedowns are good and when he is on his back all you can say about that is that he is just that much closer to turning it around so he is on top. That guy is slippery as hell. Karo is a great fighter but he just couldnt stay on top and his striking was not on the same level as Diegos as you can tell by the way their faces looked at the end of the fight. I wonder if Diego kept Karos tooth as some kind of trophy.

As for Diegos attitude that most people dont like. I like it and I think he is very good for mma because even if you hate him you wanna watch all his fights just to see him loose, and then after he dominates you just wanna see him fight again. I have been a Diego fan before TUF and I would love to see him get a title shot.

Koscheck is also getting a lot better and him versus Diaz would be a good fight for him and I have heard rumours about it, but I dunno for sure. He needs a test instead of fighting bums just to show his true skill. Right now I dont think he should fight Diego again, I think he would just lose again, but give him a year or 2 and I could see one hell of a fight.
