And even when he's won some decisions he shouldn't have, he always gave his best and his all, and he's a tough SOB. He isn't judging the fights. He's just fighting in them. I highly respect Sanchez.
good post. he gives everything he has in every fight, every position, every minute, every second and hopes for the best. how can you hate on someone like that?

He said the same thing around the Penn fight. He might get beat to a living death!

I'm a fan of Diego, but does wanting to see him up against BJ one more time make me a sadist?

I've slowly . . . very slowly . . . come around to being a legit fan of this guy.

His personality is unique and makes him stand out from the crowd, and I just have to admire anyone who is as passionate about life as he apparently is. He's very driven to succeed and takes his shit seriously. Respect.

It's the things that other people criticize him for that make me like him.

I don't think he gets hated on... People make fun of him, but it's good natured

I don't think that's really the case. I think a lot of people genuinely consider Diego's weirdness as a reason to not really respect him. They consider him more of a punchline than a man to be respected.
