Diego Sanchez is the Real Deal

This Kid is unstoppable. He throws bombs and doesnt run out of energy. I was watching him fight in KOTC and this kid is amazing and he is going to be tough to beat

yup, watch his fight with karo. dont think its debatable that he's a good fighter and danger to any1, but i dont think he can hang with the best of the best. meaning hes not at the point of holding a title. he might get to the #1 contender spot but once he gets there i think he'll end up with mixed results

I wont disagree that we haven't seen is full stuff yet....


But the real deal??? ummm besides Joe Riggs, he has went to a decision against Diaz (who when you see fight Gomi, you will see how "good" Diaz is) Karo, who isn't bad, but not a great fighter, and Alessio who really hasn't beat really great people...

So, real deal? that still has to be decided ... lol the jury is still out on this one....

i need to see him fight someone that can take him to the limit and see how he does.

For most of you, ignorance is bliss, but for me it's about the truth.

Bets won:
4-0, Admins taken down in bets 2 (asskicker, Jdun11)

Who are the top-5 welterweights?

Hughes, St. Pierre, Parisyan, Fitch, and Penn.

Diego has fought one, and it was a close decision.

Diego is a really good fighter, he is still young and he keeps on improving. He is going to be an even greater force in the future.

I don't see anyone finishing Diego for a long while. He has shown that he can compete when the pressure is on. Hell, I think he performs even better when he's facing a top quality opponent. He's the real deal, but this has been known for a year & a half now.

if you want to use that logic, who has jon fitch fought? joe riggs has fought way tougher guys than jon fitch. and bj penn? he came back to the ufc after being out for 2 years to fight st pierre/hughes, and now he's going down to light weight. it's ignorant to say diego hasn't fought top competition because he hasn't fought those people, he's fought the toughest WW's in the division minus the champs (hughes/st pierre) and managed to beat them all. if you don't think riggs, florian, diaz, and karo are 'tough' ww's then you don't know shit. and if diego beats koscheck he definitely deserves a shot at either st pierre/hughes

Jon Fitch has beaten Hironaka. That is a top quality opponent. He has also beaten Thiago Alves, another top quality opponent.
