Thinking Hughes will simple overpower Diego after watching how much he improved after joining Greg Jackson is silly imo, but we'll see
You mean the Kampmann fight that Diego lost? That was a gift. Anyway Diego's fast pace don't mean shit because Hughes will use his wrestling and Matt not Diego will set the pace. Sanchez will not force Hughes to fight his fight. Diego is gonna sub Hughes? Funny Almedia is a much better grappler than Diego and Hughes was the one who subbed him. Hughes is a highly underrated grappler and IMO is the superior grappler and wrestler, that leaves striking which Diego may have an edge in but only in power IMO. Diego's brawling is garbage. I said it before the Penn fight that Sanchez is sloppy. Look for Hughes to easily take Sanchez down and easily keep him there.
