Great Sig! Rep'd!Originally Posted by WadoKaiSakurai is a showman, and to his credit; he'll make Diego look decent before putting an end to his consciousness at a time that's convenient for him.
A lot of people would say both those bouts with Diego (Karo / Diaz) could've gone either way. Some would say Karo didn't train enough and didn't have the cardio; the implication being that he could half-ass train and give Diego a run for his money.
As for the decision loss to Koscheck; well, that was a horrible enough showing on Diego's part to really overshadow any 'spectacular' performances he may have had.
Sakurai is bad news for anyone at 170; and if Diego didn't overpower and TKO Karo or Diaz, he won't be overpowering and KO'ing Sakurai.
While I think Diego is going to come back angrier and training harder than ever before. If this fight goes down, no amount of pre-fight praying, or snarling, is gonna save him.
