    I used to agree. there was nothing entertaining about his performance last night. he did absolutely nothing for 15 minutes. his top 2 moments were getting fired up cause he got rocked and catching a kick

    At this point he is literally one of the worst fighters in the UFC, so no.

    ^ this. I was waiting for Diego to just start brawling and go crazy, but he only did so for a couple seconds after he got hit with some good shots. Diego didn't win that fight and it damn sure wasn't a 30-27 for him

    Nothing is more entertaining than a fighter on the decline walking into punches.

    Pearson's gameplan didn't help much either in that fight.

    Agreed. Whenever Diego used skill as well as aggression to break his opponents, it was always fun to watch. Now, he's target practice for 4 minutes and 50 seconds followed by inaccurate hooks.

    I find him entertaining in the fact that he is so terrible at fighting and just walks forward and gets punched in the face. Also his silly metal faces and screaming are funny but I always root for him to lose which he always does unless the judges don't watch the fight.

    Yea it's so entertaining watching him throw an ineffective flurry of punches at the end of every round and then win a bullshit decision. MMA needs more guys like that.

    I do not find watching a guy swing wildly at air, no matter how many punches he wings, while blocking his opponent's punches with his face, all that entertaining to watch.

    I had a feeling Diego would get the nod in that fight. Judges seem to love him. He clearly shouldn't have won that fight. It really wasn't close and shouldn't have even been a split decision. Ross took every round. But, as we all know, this isn't the first time Diego has taken a bad decision. At least one judge didn't feel the hometown pressure. He actually scored it like it should have been.

    He was at one point. Now he is entertaining in the sense that you can't believe someone is as delusional as he is.

    I never thought Diego could get a worse decision than the Kampmann fight

    Watching him fight is just terrible. Sloppy body with no technique.

    You are the sort of guy who thinks Boxing is boring. Taking punches on the chin with no attempt to block or avoid whilst windmilling at your opponent is not entertaining. You can see millions of fights just like Diego Sanchez fights in pubs and clubs all over the world.

    Watching someone with actual ability and talent is way more entertaining.
