I don't know if anyone saw it, but Riggs caught him at the same time Riggs himself was caught putting him down. What made Diego's punch more effective is his full weight being behind his hook, while Riggs was doing a NO-NO in pulling back while firing a punch all in one motion. Diego can't **** around getting touched like that while initiating his offense because if Riggs had turned his shot over we may have seen a double knockdown and a different result.

I really hope he catches that NOW and makes the necessary adjustments to set his punches up better.
I agree with most of what you said and yes Diego still needs much improving but his stand-up has come a long way and he seems to be getting better all around...period

Yo, check this out. When I first saw the fight I missed the poke (he was poked) but I did see Diego in the corner afterward with his eye closed and his lips moving. Dude...I thought he was chanting in victory...or some shit.

There is no way Diego thinks his stand up is as good as GSP. That is why he knows and has said that he isnt ready to fight him. Diego is a very smart fighter, he knows that if he fights GSP that he will probably lose because he knows GSP is better than him. I dont think he was saying his stand up is as good as GSP in that interview, more so that it is better than Matt hughes, which it is. Diego is a training machine, the only things he needs to work on for a fight with Hughes is ground game and takedown defence cause I think Hughes will be smart enough to not keep this one standing especially after his last fight and watching Diegos last fight.

And even if Matt does get on top of him, remember Diego is crazy slippery in a Penn sort of way. He is very good at taking the back of his opponent from the bottom, not as good as Penn but you know what I mean. I really do see Diego winning this fight if they can get this too happen. He definetly has all the tools and he has never been proved wrong before.

Now, I have respect for Diego, but I don't think he should try to compare his stand-up to GSP's.
Where did Diego compare his stand up to GSP? the quote you typed simply said he hopes Hughes wants to stand with him like he (Hughes) did with GSP. He did not say his stand up was as good as GSP did he? It sounds more like he was saying if Hughes decides to stand like he did with GSP that the fight will be ugly. Had nothing to do with him comparing himself with anyone

Sanchez hasn't fought the top-three in the WW yet. Great news that we'll get to see it happen (so long as Penn keeps going up and down in weight class).

Diego was saying that if Matt stands up with him like he did with GSP, Hughes will get knocked out.

Diego saying that he can knock Matt out like Diego did.

This, I do not agree with.

Thats not even what he said. He said if Hughes stands with him it might get ugly. If Hughes does stand with him Diego will mess him up. Diegos stand up is better. If Diego thought his standup was good enough for GSP he would have challenged him.

diego knows gsp has the best stand up and diego also knows he can't beat gsp yet, sanchez is in no rush to fight gsp, i can't wait untill hughes and diego get it on because i think it will be a war, diego can sound cocky and arrogant in his comments but i think alot of it is his huge confidence maybe if he lost to hughes it would make him a better fighter
