Tough fight for both guys... and Joe daddy needs a win here. He's starting to look like a gate keeper due to his innability to beat top guys.

A win over Diego would definitely help him.

A win over Joe Daddy for Diego would show that he's in the top quarter of the LW division.

I say it's a tough fight to call because Diego is a beast, Joe daddy has looked less than impressive lately, and Diego has historically had trouble with good wrestlers.

I wouldn't bet on this fight even with someone else's money.

Well, Diego has had trouble against stronger wrestlers. Stevenson is smaller than Diego with stand up that isn't as good.

I'd pick Diego by submission, technical knockout, or even by knock out. Where ever this fight goes, I think he should win.

good matchup in terms of making sanchez fight up the ranks at LW. Bad matchup stylistically.

I can see Diego climbing the LW ladder rather handily. I'd love to see him go at it with Franca or Frankie Edgar. Though I must say I think that he'd gain wins in both fights.

It would be fun to watch though.

I see him beating Franca but Frankie would be tough.

Frankie is a smaller version of Fitch/Koscheck. Strong wrestling, very solid stand up and submission defense.

It would be a interesting match up.

I agree. I think Frankie's wrestling would be cause for a very boring decision loss for Diego.

I think the difference is, Edgar is alot smaller than both Koscheck and Fitch. Also considering the fact that some people scored the fight against Fitch for Sanchez and that he was fighting with a staph infection against Koscheck and there you go.

I think Sanchez would beat most lightweights in the UFC with Sherk and Penn being his hardest match ups.

Man this sucks I was hoping Joe would get an easier fight. Also this tells me that they want to set up Penn/Sanchez as soon as they can.
