    At best I had Diego with one round kept watching waiting for the old Diego, but it never came. Agree Diego looked like crap hopefully his next fight won't.

    Always liked his intensity. Think the money, fast life, & the fact he thinks he's a elite striker has made his stock fall.

    Only Diego and the goofs at the judging table.

    I thought Gomi won as well.

    Just wanted to comment on what the good doctor said about him being an overachiever. I agree with him. It is also one of the reasons I like Diego and always watch his fights. His agression, cardio, and heart are awesome. Got to love a guy that wills his own achievement. Diego is not a philosopher that I would follow, but I do enjoy his fighting acumen.

    I also thought Gomi won.

    Sanchez's flat performance reminded me of his loss against Hathaway where he didn't turn up

    I always wanted to see a KenFlo/Sanchez rematch @155. I always thought Kenny would smoke him.

    I thought Gomi had all 3 based on the criteria of effective grappling, striking and octagon control but knew that judges would give Diego as they continuously tend to misinterpret effective grappling and octagon control by ignoring the stuffed takedowns and that you have to do something with the takedowns afterwards. I did not think any of the judges would give round 2 and 3 to Diego so the fact that 2 did is mind blowing.

    I had Gomi all the way in that fight. Diego looked slow, afraid to engage unlike previous fights, and fat as hell.
