If Diego drops to LW almost everyone should take notice because the guy is a beast and he's a pretty good wrestler his only issue is he has been facing bigger better wrestlers at WW but guys at LW IMO no one except possibly BJ would beat him.

I agree and I'm one of the few that think he can take BJ. I'm bias though so my opinion doesn't matter lol

He could give BJ some issues he would probably be the best grappler BJ has faced in MMA.

A lot of people were giving Diego crap for talking about dropping after the Fitch fight, but think it would be a wise move and I would LOVE to see fights against Stevenson, Sherk, Griffin, Huerta and a ton of other LW's

I posted this same story on bloodyelbow forums and this one guy is just crazy

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2008/12/3...z-i-m-dropping

He said Diego isn't close to a title shot in the WW division even though Dana said the winner of him and Alves got a title shot. He also said Diego hasn't beaten any contenders lol. Karo, Diaz, Florian, Riggs are all bums I guess

Thanks for the post screenamesuck.

Not sure what to think though. I can see him dropping to 155 but the timing is odd. He was just supposed to fight Alves for a chance at getting a title shot. Getting injured must of frusterated him to no end.

Plus, with one of the most stacked divisions (and BJ not really defending right now) who wants to fight at 155?

Was it stated that it was for the WW belt? Or just THE belt?

Hmmm, that it is good point. I think I may have just assumed that he meant the WW belt.

I may also be crazy cuz i dont think hes near a title shot at all. He lost two in a row and then beat two scrubs in Beilkheden and Fiorvanti. What part of that says title shot on it? And no this is not like the HW division where that could actually fly

gdog43 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I think at the moment he will want to be in the ww division. He will want rematches with Kos and Fitch for starters and then fights like Thiago Alves, Matt Hughes, Mike Swick, GSP for the belt, BJ for the belt if he wins at 94 - i cant see him dropping at the moment.

If he did then he would be a force in the LW division - i would love to see Diego vs Kenny Florian - that would be a great fight and way more competitive these days.

Im happy with him in either division - great fights in both
