    I dunno, I may be wrong as to his entrance but I think its a matter of his faith in god as to why he does that. (his hands together entrance)
    I personally dont think he is overrated because you dont see him getting handed title shots, all he has done was beat people that they put in front of him. Why blame him for them putting "mediocre" talent out there to use as stepping stones if you will. Although I dont think that Nick Diaz and Karo are stepping stones of any kind. The guy deserves credit when you beat those two guys. The only reason I asked why everyone disliked him is because when you read the posts its like 85-90% of the people on here dislike him. I just wanted to know if it was a personality thing because he has some pretty interesting fights.

    I dunno why you had to generalize there and say everyone hates Diego because I don't hate him at all. I just think he is getting more credit than he deserves and people are focusing too much on his undefeated record. Actually, if there is one thing I find annoying is his stupid ass entrance with his hands together like praying. He practices Zen I heard and he looks dumb as hell doing it. Maybe it works for him based on his record but he looks stupid doing it. I just wonder if he's going to keep doing that after he loses.

    Anyways, I think I already made my points in this thread that i think Riggs is going to put up a good fight. I wouldn't be surprise if Riggs wins this one.

    Diego's attitude sucks! that is why everyone hates him. plus everyone wants to see such an unlikeable, who just happens to unfortunately be undefeated, get his ass whooped! once he faces BJ, Hughes, or GSP, it's gunna happen!!! YAY!

    Tito has always dramatized his fights. But in the early days of the UFC they needed that kind of Marquee fighter and he was able to step in and become a personality not just a fighter. They also needed the drama of Ken-Tito 1 at the time. Maybe not good manners, but great business. And so he talks a lot(alright a whole lot) of trash before the fight but when it all goes down if you beat him he will own it. When he was taken out by Frank and Randy both times he put on their shirts and openly stated they where the better fighter on that day and took it like a man(and that was well before the show was even a concept)Unlike a good amount of fighters that cry and make excuses when they lose( wont name names cause they're all tougher then I am).

    Riggs is not a bad fighter and no one is saying he is. i want Riggs to win, i just dont see it happening. if he can land some bombs, then he has a definite chance. but the only one to take Diego down was Karo, and Riggs is not as skilled as Karo is...i dont see Riggs being able to take Diego down. man i HATE diego...God needs to place his hand on Riggs' forehead right before the fight...GO RIGGS!

    And like I said, all i am arguing is that Riggs is no pushover and Karo is one of many Mediocre welterweight at UFC.

    i do agree that riggs is not a pushover. and it should make for a fun fight. but if anyone is mediocre @ welterweight it is riggs. he is a tuff dude, but i just don't think he deserves to be fighting someone as diego's caliber.

    Sure Diego has a good chance of beating Riggs but he wont walk thru Riggs like you are suggesting.

    Don't get me wrong I don't like Diego but his bjj is awesome, Diego will take down Riggs in 20 seconds and just grapple until Riggs gives him an opening then its over.

    I don't think Riggs will get a chance to land a punch..
