he's going to be a vegetable.
Entertaining? Yes. Close? Not by a long shot.
Those asking for Diego vs Nate, do you remember Diego vs Nick? Great fight ! Check out Diego vs Karo Parysian too.
For those talking about Diego's cognitive state going forward, there's a fascinating PBS documentary relative to the subject matter I'd recommend watching.
To me, Jones vs Gustafsson is still the best fight of the year by a very long way
Not only brazilians can do this stuff
It was entertaining but I wouldn't call it the best fight ever nor even of the year. As some people mentioned before, the first 2 rounds was a showcase of Diego taking a beating. I enjoyed the Jones/Gustafsson fight more because it was entertaining AND pretty evenly contested the whole fight. Same with Hendricks/Condit.
The third round though was very climatic with the near finish. I still don't think that round was crazier than the first round of Wanderlei/Stann, but still extremely crazy.
Nonetheless, it was an entertaining fight and it's still surprising [at least to me] that Diego to this day can still get close finishes against better skilled opponents like Melendez and Ellenberger based on heart, aggression and tenacity. I do fear for his health in years to come.
