Diego to 155 (source)

I personally think this is a great move for Diego. He has a real shot at winning the LW title. At 170 he would have no chance against GSP. Alot of cool fights for him at this weight.

Great move for Diego, look at how well Kenny is doing down there.

Diego I think might be able to actually beat BJ. Even if he loses, he would make BJ have an incredibly though time, because BJ ain't subbing Sanchez. The only people I think he would have a lot of trouble with is Sherk and Florian and BJ, but I actually think his best chance is against BJ out of all of them (oddly enough).

Heard this a few times before and it's not happened still cant see how KOS is getting alot more chances then Diego at 170 when Diego would in my opinion tko him,in a rubber match, but he knows better than anyone what weight he should fight at.

what alves did to kos probably scared the shit out of him

diego vs. sherk....wow...that would pretty much be amazing...both need a fight and diego's rep at 170 should launch him into the elite at 155....probably 2 fights from a title shot....make it happen joe silva

Wow. Diego at 155??? Holy crap.
He's gonna be a huge LW. I'm still finding it difficult to picture him as a LW though. I mean, thats a massive weight cut. We'll see if its going to affect him.

Bravo, smart move IMO. Like people already stated in the thread, 170's too dangerous and risky for him, with GSP, Alves, Fitch, and even BJ who might be there after the superfight. Definitely love to see a rematch against Florian.

On a sidenote, I'd like to see Serra drop to 155................after he gets his ass handed to him by Hughes

This is a pretty good move. For once, he will be one of the bigger guys in his division which was his only weakness when he fought at 170. If you thought his chin was good at 170, imagine it at 155. I don't see anyone really hurting him.

I think he can take Edgar, Griffin, Diaz, Guida, Franca, Maynard, Stevenson, Pellegrino, Florian, etc.

I believe he would beat Sherk but, that would be a great fight.

BJ Penn is the only guy that he probably won't beat in my opinion.

Diego at 155 is scary.
