this is an intersting match up but i def feel that diego wins this by submission, this is just a tune up fight for diego fighting the winner of GSP Hughes




Mancrushes
1.Shogun
2.BJ
3.Fedor
4.Kos
5.GSP

I dont think a Riggs victory is an upset, yes he has lost some crummy fights, but that dude has cement hands, he could easily put diego to sleep if he connects.....and hes so incredibly strong, its not gonna be easy for Diego.....I like Riggs in this one

After his fight with Parisian I thought Sanchez would be in line to fight one of the top-3 WW guys, Penn, St. Pierre, or Hughes, depending on how they work the title shots out. A battle with Riggs will be a good one but I wonder if Sanchez think's he's treading water right now.

I think Sanchez knows they want to give him a titleshot but the champ has to fight GSP and then the TUF finnaly guy first before he will be able to get a shot. I am guessing he took this fight to stay on the top of his game cause he doest wanna go too long without having a fight. I think this should be a pretty good fight.

Diego always seems to damage people either on the ground or in the scramble, he's never really been able to stand with anyone.
When is NIck DIaz going to be considered for a shot?
he wont be considered because after ufc 65 he is leaving the ufc. yeves edwards is leaving also to fight somewhere else.

Diego will probably eat him alive, Riggs isnt that difficult to take to the ground and Diego will work his magic on him.

Yves leaving still breaks my heart. Yea, he lost twice in a row, but he's still someone who can boost the already stacked LW division.
