Diego would be a beast at 155. There aren't that many fighters that would be able to handle his pace, size, and grappling ability.

On a sidenote, I'd like to see Serra drop to 155................after he gets his ass handed to him by Hughes
Agreed on both fronts, I think the LW class would be amazing if it added Diego and Serra to it's roster. Right now, I think the only person who could dethrone BJ would be Kenflo, you add those two and Sherk into the mix that's a good UFC LW top 5.

I think Diego would be a beast at 155 and there are only two guys right now that I would pick over him off the top of my head and that is of course "The Prodigy" BJ Penn and this one I would have to do a little more thinking but I would still probably pick Sean Sherk over him.

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.
He would come into fights weighing 168. Which is generally a sign they can make the lighter division i.e Kampmann coming in at 182, Hendo at 203 etc.

Wooooow....this is some of the best news i've heard in a long time. Diego in the LW division makes it that much more interesting. Diego v Kenflo 2 anyone? i reckon that'd be a ripper

i wanna see him again, cause i luv his new found stand up.

A world GP of the best LW's would be sick, so basically dream and ufc + Gomi (of old) and Thomson

If Sanchez is able to retain his cardio @ 155, I can see him being champion one day. Diego vs. Kenny II, make this happen!

Wow, just wow! My favorite WW gaining a weight and strength advantage by moving down? He is already a top contender at 170. At 155 he would be damn near unstoppable. I like it. I like it a lot.

Great time to do it as well since he needs a couple solid wins at WW to earn a title shot. If he were to move down and get two good wins at LW I could see him getting a title shot as well. And BJ/Diego would sell PPVs!!

Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21
