I am really pulling for Diego in this fight. I hope he bounces back and does great things. It will be interesting to see how he does after BJ beat him so badly.

Hathaway is probably the best british wrestler we have, he is good.

Rooting for Diego, because, hes diego, always have been, always will be a fan. Hope he comes back strong after the BJ loss and brings the nightmare.

Diego is a badass dude and alot of fun to watch, but his last fight exposed a ton of holes in his game. He got raped by the big dog at lightweight, and I can't see him doing any better against the likes of GSP. I love to have Diego around, but he will have to do alot of work to get in the title picture at WW. I'm not even sure he can make it past Hathaway.

Pulling for Hathaway in this one, he's a great prospect and wouldn't be surprised to see him pull this one off.

Hardy vs Sanchez would be epic.

As for this fight, I don't see how Hathaway wins personally. He's a good wrestler for a Brit, but he's not on the same level as Diego as far as grappling goes. I don't see him beating Diego on the feet either, so this should be a pretty comprehensive return to the WW division for Sanchez.

Hathaway is HUGE WW with very solid Wrestling and i see him exposing Diego mediocre MMA wrestling and GNP him to decision .

I've seen a lot of savvy bettors on Hathaway in this one. His line moved signifantly down from the open. I'm gonna have to give him a good look... could be a nice dog play.

I want Diego to win but for some odd reason I think John Hathaway will put it out.

Diego isn't a big power striker and I can't see this fight vertical long enough for him to take John apart. John is a huge guy and my first impression of him is how strong he was. He's strong as a bull against a guy who was last at 155. Bad combination. I like Hathaway by decision.

Been an English MMA fan I have to route for my home boy John Hathaway (its the law here) but I really can't wait to see Sanchez at WW, I have always thought he was one of the most enjoyable fighter to watch.

Diego was my first favorite fighter! I love his aggressive style more then any other, Machida's Style inspires me, and Diego gets me Pumped! I know very few fighters that would have the balls/confidence Diego did after getting completely owned for 4 rounds to go in there as he did....

Yeah that fight showed he had no chance to beat BJ, but it also proved that he will NEEEVER quit and will ALWAYS come to bring 100% win or lose! WAR DIEGO!

Think this one has got FOTN written all over it, Diego never gives up and Hathaway is a promising up and comer, add to that they both will want to prove a point (Hathaway that he is ready for the step up in comp, and Diego that he can be a force at WW) and you got yourself a quality fight.

Plus even if the fight is a let down, Diego's staredown won't disappoint!

I'll be cheering for Hathaway but really I think this fight comes a year too soon for him. This is a big step up in competition and against a seasoned name like Diego Sanchez I can't really see him pulling off the win. Still, it's good experience for him and it says a lot that Joe Silva would put Hathaway up against someone like Sanchez this early in his career.

Sanchez by decision.
