    Tons of respect for the fighter, pretty much the only one left in the UFC from the "legendary" original TUF. The man is a true warrior that leaves his heart inside the octagon every single time. At this stage of his careerr, is he still able to change his strategy and fighting approach (yeah, I know it´s awesome just the way he fights) to try and make a last run? What are your thoughts? diego sanchez.jpg

    Unless he suddenly develops a fight iq, he's pretty much done. He has amazing jits and even competed in a final against Roy Nelson. (Think that was the same one where Nelson beat Mir) if he would set up some take downs, instead of getting in these slug fests, or using sloppy shots, he could definitely win some fights. I don't see that happening tho but he's definitely as tough as they come, and will put on a few more wars before hanging them up.

    If he focused on mainly his ground game and got rid of his brawling i think he could stick around with a few more wins

    Nope, pretty sure he has brain damage. He should really think about hanging them up.

    Not unless he's scheduled to face Ross Pearson in Albeuquerque every 3 months for the next 2 years. Even then I have my reservations.

    Dude has one of the greatest chins ever, an aggressive style, decent ground game, but Jackson/Wink couldn't figure out a way to turn him into a winning fighter. He had a great career for what he was, if that makes any sense.
