Who's "0" will be 1st to go - Rashad or Diego
I like both these ultimate fighters and I think they have promising futures ahead ... I can't wait to see Diego take on the winner of Hughes St. Pierre .. that's just going to be a fantastic fight ... I know Diego probably wants Hughes more since he is "the" guy. Both Rashad and Diego say they plan to stay undefeated for a long time ... personally I think Diego may lose before Rashad b/c Diego has pretty much reached the pinnacle of the welterweight division whereas Rashad probably has several more tune-up fights before he faces a title holder

Diego is slated to fight Riggs isnt he?

yeah in december.

I agree with you for the same reasons. Just want to add that Rashad has the strength over many in his division to really keep the fight in his control. At 170 the tops guys are all about the same strength, and Diego is certainly not the biggest 170... Also I dont much care for Diego, he takes himself too seriously and his undefeated streak is not without questions...

riggs is a more dangerous fight for diego then forrest is for rashad. rashad has good boxing and can probably survive standing with forrest, he will also be likely able to find a takedown. diego is up against a guy that can end a fight with one punch or a small flurry. with far better standup and who is very very dangerous on top of you even if hes in his opponents gaurd. he ko'd groves with one elbow from the top and pounded out freakin joe doerkson

EVeryone says Rashad is a boring fighter

WouldLuv2FightU 11-01-2006 07:59 PM

he is boring but that's not to take away that he has better skills than me. Just an opinion...I also think Tito is boring but most would disagree...again just an opinion. What about u do you think Rashad is boring?

The difference between these two guys is that Rashad is improving. His ground skills are obviously getting better and if he starts to learn some boxing and some submissions he could be a real force. Let's face it, the UFC doesn't really have that many great lightheavyweights. I think that unless Rashad has to fight Chuck, Tito or Vera he'll keep his 0.

As for Diego, I never thought he was that strong of a fighter. He suprised me by beating Parysian, but I think now everyone is taking him a little bit more seriously. I really hope Riggs bulldozes him, not because I hate Diego, but because I think Joe doesn't get the props he deserves. Either way, eventually Diego has to fight Penn, St Pierre or Hughes.

In my opinion, Diego would get destroyed by a lot of the better welterweights in the UFC: guys like Drew Fickett, Tony DeSouza. Even a relative unknown like Anthony Torres has a shot at taking away that 0.

Diego goes first.

diego is the much betterfighter and doesnt get much respect, no way ironman, would fickett beat diego, thats crazy Kos owned Ficket until that last 30 secs..Diego is the fourth best Welterweight in the World.Rashad isnt on that level yet.I think he is gonna fight Babalu next and hes gonna get submitted in the first round.Diego will lose to GSP after Gsp beats Hughes
