UFC 69: Shootout

WHY THE HELL IS SANCHEZ FIGHTING KOSCHECK!?!?!? Jesus Christ can this guy get in title contention yet!? Shit even Forrest Griffin got a shot at Tito and it took a lot less time for him to get there than it is for Diego. Don't get me wrong, Kos is a great fighter but I think Diego should be fighting top contenders in the WW division. He should be fighting BJ Penn or Matt Hughes... Shit put him against Parisyan again... But not Koscheck... Sorry I'm a little disappointed. Also the Serra v. GSP fight is a waste of time for GSP. Jeez I hope they never do another comeback show again... This is so dumb that we are forced to watch these idiotic fights. Who knows, Maybe Serra won't make weight either like his TUF counterpart. Lutter is an idiot.

Well, you say you want Diego to get a title shot and compare it to Forrest getting to fight Tito..... Tito wasn't cahmpion lol.
There are other people in line, thats all there is to it. Serra "earned" his shot at the belt, and Diego has to wait.

Actually no, I did not say that... If I would have said that then I'm sure you would have seen the mention of current champion Georges St. Pierre in the post, which you didn't. However, what I did say was that I feel that Diego should be fighting CONTENDERS not Koscheck. IF you remember correctly, Tito fought Griffin and then went on to fight Liddell, this would incur that Tito was a CONTENDER. Ummmm, so Parisyan and Diaz aren't good steps to contenders? Joe Riggs is washed up and Florian was not as good as he is now when he first faced diego. IMO he should now be fighting BJ Penn (assuming he's not going LW) or Matt Hughes, not Kos. So do me a huge favor and read my posts a little better before you comment back on them. It'll save me time from having to explain myself a second time

P.S. The main keyword in my first post was "Title Contention" not "Title Shot"

This is somewhat dissappointing. I seem to remember Hughes asking for Diego. Instead he gets Chris Lytle! Diego stated that it was his mission in life to fight Hughes. Instead he gets Koscheck! Its frustating that the UFC are not making these potentially good matches.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Jesus man are you that clueless!? It was a comparison, they both were the winners of TUF 1, therefore they both have been in the UFC for the same amount of time, forrest fought three fights in order to get a fight that would put him up against Chuck. 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...

A lot of fights are all about the payday and timing. They build these fight up until the dollar signs are right. Diego will get his shot but only when he can pull some money in as a headliner on a PPV. Thats only my opinion, so take it as such.
