Of course! Yeah all fights are about money, I'm just stating my disgust with the situation lol.

Basically the winner of this fight faces GSP. That's all this is.

You're just a cook...

Koscheck's a dangerous opponent. I think Diego will pull off the win, but I can't count out Kos just yet. The guy is a better wrestler, and has improved greatly since their first fight(Which I dug a lot). I'm looking forward to this fight. Yea, Diego should face Hughes, but lets see what happens afterwards.

I actually would love to see Joslin vs Diego personally. That would be one really good fight.

This tuf 4 show ruined everything for Diego, he was deserving of a title shot already and then matt serra has to come along and earn a shot through TUF 4. There really is no point because he will lose and diego just has to wait longer until he gets his chance.

I know- Sanchez does deserve a title shot.

But this fight has some upsides, if Diego wins, which he probably will (although it will not be easy). It will shut Kos up, and maybe force him to go to some smaller shows and get some more experience. It will guarantee that the fight can't happen agains for a long time. And it will show that Diego can definitely deliver against superior wrestlters.

His fourth fight was against Tito WHO WAS A TITLE CONTENDER, and he lost, therefore Tito went on to a title fight and not Forrest. All I'm saying is that Diego has fought 6 fights and he still is not fighting CONTENDERS!!!!! Such as a BJ Penn or a Matt Hughes. They still have him dancing around when he should be having some major fights now. I'm not the asshat here, any person with an IQ larger than their age can figure this one out...
Sorry Buddy, Atom Danger is right. You make it seem that the fight with Tito was a title fight. Now despite how boring Koscheck may be, he's no can at 8-1. If Diego wins I'm sure he'll be up next for a shot at GSP. I do understand what you're saying. Diego vs Hughes would be a sick fight, but where would Diego go if he lost that? This is a great lead up for him with GSP.

Why is this happening? This Brazillian guy got whupped in his last fight. Why don't you let him go fight somewhere else and get some experience? This is ridiculous.

I think the Diego/Koscheck fight is a good idea. Kos has won some good fights and he is a much better fighter now. He is much more complete. Diego got the bullshit decision over Karo. I think this is a good test. It will be great to see how different the fight is to their previous fight.

bullshit decision? i hope you arent saying Karo should have won...Diego won that fight cleanly.

Anyways, i think fighting Koscheck is a step down for Diego Sanchez.
