I had their first fight a draw, and Diego has gotten progressively worse since that fight, where Diaz has gotten much, much better.

I think it's a pretty clear attempt to get a fight with Nick. I don't have Sanchez as a top 10 WW--maybe not even top 15, I'd have to think about it--so I don't think he'd be even getting a top 10 opponent, never mind a top 5.

Again, I just don't see any way he's going to win. He was able to eke out the last round against Ellenberger based on Jake's cardio...but he's not going to get that opportunity against Nick.
I think a lot of people hate Diaz's behavior so much that they pretend he's a mediocre fighter. He isn't.
If anything, I'd give Diego a rematch with Kampmann. They're both coming off losses, it gives an opportunity to put some of the controversy of their first fight to rest.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
