    Respect to Diego!

    One of the very rare guys who isnt a rankings-Diva and who is willing to pay it forward.

    If he beats another fighter from the Caucasus people will have to call him the Caucasus killer.
     
  5. All the best for both fighters! Hopefully after this Islam gets more high ranked fighters!

    This will shadow the Olivera vs Fighter bout, even though UFC would keep them as the main event (assuming its the same card)

    tough fight for Islam. Diego is a bjj monster and has way better striking than Ramos. This will truly show if Islam is ready for the top 5.

    diego would be a live dog here i think. islams size might be the problem, getting to him and through his reach will be trouble as islam is a patient striker who dosnt lunge in and over commit and also dosnt wait for one big counter strike.

    grappling wise its interesting. i want to say islams size and skills should keep him safe but diego will find his back if they grapple long enough.

    Islam is an inch taller but has 3.5" reach disadvantage (according to UFC stats)

    I would argue ready for the top 10 and not top 5.

    Diego is very skilled (I made a thread giving him props) but I haven't seen any evidence that he's top five with a win over Pettis.

    It's a better win than anything Islam has though....
