he's long on ability and experience, but he just can't nut up in the big pressure fights...

i dunno... maybe he should take a f@ckin pill to calm his nerves, or try a hypnotist or sports psychologist or some sh!t... i'm tired of him pissing himself on the big stage, but i wouldn't write him off for good just yet...

yeah its true Diesel promises so much and delivers so little...i truly hope he comes back strong and gets on a roll. Its more than likely a mental thing more than physical now.

he will be back im sure.

"the diesal" physicaly has what it takes, even technique wise but he makes os many stupid decisions in his fights thats cause him to lose.

in his fight with diego he tried to beat diego to the punch with a huge looping shot cuz he probably didnt even think diego would hit him once standing, he ended up getting hit himself right on the button, then what does he do?

he still rocked so he tries to standup with diego running at him, on his feet just in time to eat a huge knee.

he could have saved himself twice in that fight, 2 bad choices caused him too lose. diego capitalized on those mistakes.

I was happy to see him get knocked out. I guess his mouth piece was right when it said "GOOD NIGHT"

1. He needs to change camps
2. Maybe gain the weight back & try the heavyweight division (On 2nd thought he may get knocked out even faster there)

Its not like this was a huge upset or anything. I dunno why people are going crazy over it. Diego was by far the favorite to win this fight. In the weeks before lots of ppl were talkin about Riggs knocking him out and stuff and I swear most ppl thought he was going to win and thats why they are all disappointed. But the fact of the matter is that Diego is damn good, I never doubted him losing this fight for a second and couldnt believe after watching that fight with Karo that people actually thought Riggs was goin to win. He is a decent fighter, but thats it. I would like for him to stay in the UFC cause I enjoy watching him fight but if he does stay you gotta admit that he will never really be a real title contender.
