    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.

    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 is far from a chump in regards to MMA but he will be not be champion. His one chance was against BJ and he didn't do enough to pressure him and in turn lost his only chance. If this were years ago Diego could give Pettis fits, for that matter even current Diego could give guys a headache due to his cardio and tenacity alone but he will likely not get passed Gil and would not beat Pettis, though I would love to see both things occur.

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

    Anthony Pettis would destroy Diego. But we will never see that because Melendez will destroy him tomorrow.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff
