Diego Sanchez: Im lifting again. I want to make a statement with how i look.
"I was injured the whole camp [for Thiago]. I had a hurt shoulder, [and] I had broke my hand, so I didnít get to lift at all for that camp. Thatís why I wasnít as big as I am now. Iím lifting again. Iím getting my strength back. I think the UFC is gonna be impressed with the way I come into this fight -- strong ... There will never be another fight for Diego Sanchez at 155. That was a brief hiatus. I told everybody I wanted to win the belt and go back up. Truthfully, I was never 100 percent at 55. I was always 75 percent. I was never strong. I was wiry strong, but I didnít have my brute strength that you have from lifting weights. I want to make a statement with how I look. I want guys to say, ĎI canít believe how strong he was in there.í I donít ever want to get out-strengthed in my career ever again."
Huh.. i wonder if itl be a noticeable change. It better be or he hyped it up for no reason.
I don't think it was his strength causing him problems, I think it was his lack of growth. Hopefully this means he is getting into the gym more and working with his trainers more as well. Will he get big enough that he will have to start cutting weight seriously to make 170? It would be interesting to see. But yes, I would agree, he did look smaller in his more recent fights.
