I really don't get his move back up to 170. He lost 1 fight at 155 and that was to BJ Penn and he really had no chance in that fight from the get go because he got taken out on the feet. It had nothing to do with his strength and everything to do with his wild, sloppy stand up. His battle with Guida may have got him FotN award, but it also illustrated his sloppy boxing.

He had 3 fights at 155. Stevenson, Guida and BJ Penn. In which of those fights did we see lack of strength as a factor anywhere?

At 170 we've already seen his lack of strength in the Hathaway fight. I can tell you where we are gonna see lack of strength and that is if he ever fights Kos again, or Alves, or Story or GSP.

I saw the UFN weigh-in pics and it looks like the same 170lb Diego to me. He looks like a flabby, undersized WW and several inches shorter than Kampmann.

I'm not saying that Diego can't have success at WW with certain match-ups that favor him, but there's no way he's going to be a contender at his size, where he definitely was at 155.

Diego and Joe Stevenson looked excellent when on The Ultimate Fighter and I believe they were 185lbs. They were strong and powered through guys..

I know a lot of people wanted to see pics of Diego with or without clothes to see his new look. But after seeing his flabby body I think many would agree No Thanks

I think by 'lifting weights' he was lifting a fork with a bit of pie on the end of it.

Nice jabs as always by Kampmann and top-notch TDD. The jab was progressively weaker as dominant cardio too over.

Close fight, Diego got the 2nd and 3rd by brawling.

Where did he ever show signs of bad cardio?

Diego shot for multiple td attempts every single round and was still punching with power and speed at the end of the third.

On top of that he had to deal with blood pouring from his mouth since round 1.

Diego's cardio was def strong, as usual, but man.. his physique was terrible. Just flabby. Not impressed, plus he didn't look like he was working out with weights either

I hate to say this but maybe the reason Diego looks flabby and not like a body-builder is because he ISNT on steroids and lifts weights and gains muscle naturally.................

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back
