I Agree with Adrnalnrsh in the thinking that Hughes gets gsp Next in a few months, IMO that IS fair to a Champ now former champ like Hughes - he's earned that..

As to who I think would win. I Like diego but I think Hughes would win, his Experience, Strength!!!!! and Game is better and more then diego has seen so far..

Now to last nights fight, it was nice but diego caught riggs with that defensive punch and then came in with a perfect knee to the chin,Boom, both were bullseyes,I don't think it was planned that way but it happened and diego finished it, He deserved that win...

So who do I think diego should fight?? I think diego should fight penn AND I feel diego beats penn!!!!! So I wanna see diego vrs penn..

I hate diego because he comes across as so arrogant but ***gy...yet he always knows what he is talking about. Diego is not overconfident, he is just very sure of himself. If Diego believes he can now beat Matt Hughes, he probably can.


I am DYING to see this fight, much more so than BJ penn vs Sanchez. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ammend the next matchups to have Diego vs Hughes @ UFC 67 and then the winner vs GSP @ UFC 69. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE oh PLEASE Dana. I do not want Hughes losing to GSP again and THEN facing Diego. Hughes has all the heart in the world but two losses in a row is a bit much, especially when they will probably come by TKO.

Most MMA fights...you can tell who is going to win. Diego for Hughes will be exciting if only because you cannot. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE dana white...PELASE!!!



I want to elabroate on my post. First off...I do not believe the Diego that beat alessio could beat Karo...and what happened? Diego beat karo. I also do not beleive the Diego that beat Karo can beat Hughes... The thing with Diego though, HE KEEPS GETTING BETTER and he KNOWS how much better he is getting. That's why I'm saying I trust that if Diego says he can beat Matt Hughes, he probably can. He said he doesn't want to fight GSP yet...and he'll only take the shot when he feels he can win (that may be never vs GSP). I love matt hughes and want him to beat the (@#$&$#($ out of diego by slam thrhough the floor, but I have a feeling Diego knows what he's talkin about.

This is a fight I'd be dying to see, because i really couldn't say who would win.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

Just look at the last fight with Penn, yes Penn was winning in the second but he still wasn't able to catch Matt and Penn is much better then Diego at subs.
WHAT?! How could many people believe Karo won? I thought it was quite clear Diego won. it was a good fight but not close enough to be even a split decision, definitely a unanimous decision. I'm not taking anything away from Karo and i thought it was a great fight but it wasnt debatable on who won. The decision was right.

Now Matt Hughes vs. Diego Sanchez.. im not even gonna vote cause i just dont know. I thought Matt Hughes was gonna take Georges St. Pierre but I was wrong and im not gonna under estimate a constantly improving Diego Sanchez.

So I'll put my vote as this. UNDECIDED.

I think Hughes/Sanchez is a great fight and would help to bolster up the crappy card when the TUF fighters get their shot at the title.

Definetly that would be awesome, and great for ratings. Diego said in the post fight interview bring on matt hughes. You know hughes seen that and he cant just ignore it and i doubt he would.

Let penn see how he does against Diego!!!! I then think Diego beats penn, Then he gets a shot a Hughes regardless if He wins or losses at gsp 3..

Now I keep hearing People say this and that but IMHO penn needs to fight someone other then Hughes or gsp, I think penn does'nt deserve a shot at gsp right away OR Hughes, so let him fight somebody like Diego and lets see how he does this time...

I think penn right now needs a win bad. A fight with Diego is probalby a bad thing for him right now. I think he should fight someone like Diaz, Kos or Fitch. They are all good fighters but i think Penn could take them all out.
