    Minutes after weigh-ins:


    Morning of the fight:


    I'm surprised Diego's excuse wasn't "It's my first day"....what a goof.

    No Diego you just lost to a better and more rounded fighter. Diego striking has never evolved. He just lunges in and throws punches witch is very predictable and easy to avoid with good movement.

    Not only that, he looks like he is about to take a shit before every punch he throws. Just by watching his face you can see the strikes coming.

    Chris Leben claimed gummy bears made him sick before the Brian Stann fight, and that was why he got his ass kicked so bad.

    That is fucking great, thank you. Leben is definitely on the same intellectual level as Diego.

    Meh, Bonnar was coming off some serious knee issues he was trying to rehab and said he took the steroids for that. Bonnar was not expecting to fight, Dana White publicly told him to retire, then a year later, Dana asked Bonnar to fight Silva... I believe he thought he was retired from MMA / UFC, was rehabbing his knees and was looking at taking a run at pro wrestling... Til Uncle Dana came knocking.. Ha Bonnar vs Silva makes me chuckle.

    It is possible, eating something bad before exercising always throws me off. Eating raw meat or gummy berries is dumb in general, doing it before a fight....
