Stevenson banking on small differences to be a big factor against Sanchez

It is only a tiny factor, but it is still there and all those little things like the weight-making, the jet lag, the different weather in England, little things like that all start to add up. Like I said, I think Sanchez won’t be at his very best in this fight as compared to his second or third fight at 155lbs…. I think he is underestimating me, too…. I want to stop Diego. I want to stop him or submit him. That will be a statement right there.”

I agree with Joe that it can play a part and that is why I think this fight will be closer then the experts think but I am still picking Diego.

Ya I actually feel bad for Joe. He reminds me of someones little brother whos just trying to "hang with the big boys".

The way he phrased that is almost like saying "but if all things were equal his skillset is better than mine".

Maybe I am readin too much into it.

I think Diego is a little bit underrated because of the way Kos dominated him when Diego was sick, and because most people dislike him. I think he'll kick Joe's ass.

I feel bad for Joe, i just don't see any way for him to win this fight other than catching a guillotine when Diego shoots in.

Stevenson might be getting close to joining the recent cuts. Win or lose, he needs a strong showing here. He sure as hell can't afford another outing like he had against Florian.

Or even against Gleison Tibau he was losing that fight IMO and got lucky when he caught the choke.
