Diego is better than I initially gave him credit for, and he does have excellent cardio. He finishes each fight at an extremely high energy level. When your opponent is winded, and you are going 100 MPH, the energy will outshine the fatigued competitor even if hi ie technically superior.
The question is: "Can Diego last long enough to make his excellent a factor?" If he can wind BJ, or cause an injury (like the rib with Matt Hughes) he'd have a chance. But, BJ has to know this, and his experience should prevent it.
My money's on Penn. 2nd. round submission. Maybe 1st.round.
