    I'd say fame fortune, parting, and a ring girl he lost his fire that made him

Having ground and pound as your best skill is great, if you can get your opponent down.

    It must be just me but in a weird way i think of Diego a lot like I think of Tito, minus the championship history. Both guys hard tons of heart but when heart alone couldnt win them the fight everything crumbled. Talking about the champions in their respective divisions they have in depth assessments until they start dreaming of their chances.

    I doubt we'll ever see Diego with a title.

    To be fair, nobody had Chael Sonnen in the top 50 at lhw, but they made that happen.

    Diego fights dumb and has too many strikes against him(with regard to technique holes and gaps) to ever be regarded as a top tier fighter.
    Poor guy, marijuana ruined his career.

    Or they could just give it to him based on nothing. The UFC doesn't seem to be above that at all lately.

    We want to see the best fight the best. Or, in some cases, see the best fight someone who has no business being in the same cage as the best. Thank you Dan White.
