Diego moving down to 155 according to Dana

http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/...7756&zoneid=13

This is cool I can't wait to see it.

Diego IMO will be right with BJ and Sherk as the top LW's.

Diego vs Florian 2 makes sense to me with Kenny having to wait until after 94 and then Thiago's shot if BJ wins.

Fantastic move on Diego's part imo. He was a beast at 170 and will be even more so at 155. Cannot wait for his LW debut!!!

Now my sig is out of date though b/c I have two Elite LW's and no Elite WW



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

Diego vs. Florian would be a great fight. I think Florian could take it in a rematch... although it may be that Diego has a style that stops Florian.

Diego.. I find it hard to say anything bad about him. It seems that he never really lost it.

diego vs. florian 2 would be fun, but it makes no sense and if i were florian i wouldn't take the fight

diego has to work his way up the LW division, maybe a lil faster than normal cuz of his rep at 170, but a florian fight would be really really unfair to florian

Yea but he has big time name value and that would help Kenny.

I mean what can Kenny do if BJ wins the WW title or gets hurt against GSP?

A match up with Diego would really help him.

Good to see more information on this. It would be awesome if he was given a fight with Florian and the winner got a title shot while waiting on Penn to return.

oh no joke. even if florian was comfortable taking this, he shouldnt. if he loses to sanchez which is a good chance hes back at the beginning and he doesnt gain anything from the win except a loss avenged.

The last thing Kenny wants is a fight with Diego. It does NOTHING for him! He already has his title shot and he is at the top of the divsion.

But Diego at 155 is awesome!! Tyson Griffin vs Diego, lets do it NOW!!!

1.Shogun
2.BJ
3.Fedor
4.Kos
5.GSP

Dana clearly stated in an interview that Alves will be the first fighter GSP or BJ will be facing. He also said that Kenny definitely earned his shot and will be fighting for the belt in his next fight.

Considering that lazy ass BJ fights every 6 months, it means if GSP wins to BJ, Kenny is getting his shot around July. However if Penn wins, Kenny will get it end of 09...

Yea but lets say BJ beats GSP. With BJ not wanting to fight too much in one year that means late 09 at the earliest for his title shot.

Do you really think Kenny wants to sit out for a year?
