Does Diego deserve a title shot? Definitely
Can he beat GSP? Not likely, but he can
Would he beat GSP? No

Still, I hope this fight happens as it would be a good experience for Diego. GSP could pick Diego appart and expose weaknesses that other fighters couldn't. Hopefully this would keep Diego's ego in check and get him to train harder and round out his game better. A loss to GSP (In my opinion) would be a great learning experience for Diego and make him a better fighter in the long run.

MMA weekly is never wrong... Ima lovin this fight two guys that really push the fight. I think its gonna be a much better fight then most people say but GSP is gonna come out on top.

MMA Weekly has been wrong before. In the news section even, and this is just under RUMORS.

But that would be pretty idiotic i think.
Diego is going to get killed, he isnt ready.

Diego is ready for this fight and I believe he has the best shot at GSP. Others have already said it, don't count Diego out. I will go a step further, Diego has the mental advantage in this fight. Diego intimidated by GSP, Puuuuleaz. Diego thinks he is the best fighter in the world. I cannot wait for him to stare down GSP. And yes GSP is a bad matchup for Diego, guess what? GSP is a bad matchup for everyone at 170. Diego is just as bad a matchup for GSP. I see this coming down to discipline, who is going to land the first counterpunch and then capitalize. I know I am in the minority but I say this one could go either way but I think it can and I hope Diego wins. He can, make no mistake about that and he has more then a small chance.

I am pretty sure that Diego knows he is not ready for GSP or else he would have called him out instead of Hughes. He knows he is ready for Hughes and definetly has the skills to beat him. Yes GSP is a bad matchup for everyone in their division because he is so well rounded. Definetly right now Diego has the best chance at beating him. I really wanted to see Diego fight Hughes first, and Hughes does want a fight before he goes for the belt again. But if Diego is getting the title fight at 69 he is in for a war and the Canadian crowd is definetly not going to be on his side. Either way I think it will be an awesome fight.

Smells like GSP defends belt vs Serra, GSP defends belt vs Sanchez, GSP defends belt vs HUghes for the 2nd time...and bam, GSP already has 3 title defenses and it's already august.


If I were GSP, I would be looking to beat koscheck/Fitch and defend vs Penn. If he successfully did that he should seriously consider moving up to 185 and taking down Anderson Silva. Is that going to happen? I don't thnk so. I don't think GSP is ever goign to beat anderson silva, but the point of any career is to strive to leave your mark and accomplish the most you can, and I'm just sayin...I think that's what GSP should be lookin at.


Or he could be liek bhop and attempt to defend his WW title for the next 5-6 years.

If true George has his work cut out for him. Thankfully GSP has a tremendous work ethic and he'll customize his training to counter Diego's G&P style.

It will be an explosive match and, if successful, will legitimize GSP as the premier 170 in the world and a deserving champion.

I'd rather see Diego vs GSP then Hughes vs. GSP for two reasons!

1. Diego deserves a title shot!
2. I'm not that eager to see Hughes/GSP 3 so soon after thier second fight! I'd rather see Matt face Karo first! This match was promised to us last year and it never happened! Instead we got Hughes/Riggs! I think Karo can do a better job then Riggs!
