Time for Diego Sanchez

Dana White has matched up everyone but Diego against Matt Hughs. While I think GSP is the number one contender and deserves the shot the argument could be made that he had his chance and lost.
Diego should have been next in line.

Why has Sanchez not got a title shot against Matt Hughs.

I kind of agree with you but Dana knows what he's doing. I'm sure that Diego is next in line for a title shot after Georges. Is Sanchez still fighting Riggs in Dec?

Because Diego just came into the title scene with his win over Karo. Before that Diego was nowhere near a title shot.

14-1 in Forum Bets

I seen the fight against Karo. The Judo throws by Karo where impresive. When the third round came about Diego took over. He threw a knee and knocked Karo's teeth out. The impresive thing about the knee was how high it went to catch him in the mouth. I think Diego has a great chance of winning when the time comes.

Either Matt Serra or Chris Lyttle are in line for a title shot before Diego.

If GSP and the TUF winner both lose, I think there is momentum behind a third Penn/Hughes fight before Sanchez gets a title shot.

Sanchez should have to beat GSP and/or Penn, IMO, before getting at Hughes. Just to make it even all around.

I agree with that one, to be a contender you have to beat a contender.
