    Anthony Pettis would destroy Diego. But we will never see that because Melendez will destroy him tomorrow.

    I get why you said what you said, I was just providing my opinion that he is not a chump.

    I'm a big Diego fan but no. His striking is no where near where it needs to be to get a td on Pettis. He has conditioning true but other than that & heart I just do not see it. He is half the fighter Bendo is so just no. I would love to be proven wrong though.

    Diego hasn't looked good at LW in a heckuva long time and for me, Gilbert on Saturday night should be able to pick at Diego's bones piece by piece, if Diego simply comes walking into punches with that haphazard gameplan he's seemingly had for the past few years. I don't even want to think of the damage Diego would incur in one round with Pettis.

    Diego is probably the biggest overachiever who like Guida has gone pretty far up the ladder (at one point) based on heart, tenacity and aggression without having a strong skill set. Diego's comment is based on the fact that he thinks he will take Pettis down and outgrapple him but Pettis' TDD, in my opinion, is better than Diego's overrated TDs.

    Nonetheless, this fight most likely will never happen as I strongly believe Diego's best days are behind him. Gilbert, who is better than Diego at every part of the game, will solidify that in 3 days.
