I have followed Diego Sanchez for a very long time and I just would like everyone else's opinions. I just feel Diego is a forgotten man nowadays and no talk of him is made anymore. But I do understand and appreciate that MMA is one of the sports which is based on "what have you done recently". Anyways, I really did think Diego would have become the WW champ a long time ago. Ever since I saw him on TUF 1, the guy won me over big time. He had an excellent ground game and had such a confidence and belief in himself that just made me believe that it was his destiny to become champ. Obviously, I have now come to the realisation that Diego won't beat GSP but what did all of you think of Diego as a fighter back before his 2nd fight with Kos (UFC 69)? Did you believe he was the real deal and a future champ? OR did you think he was just a UFC hype? I really believed back in 2005/06 that he would beat GSP and for many years I compared the 2 fighters. Just so you all are aware, Diego was on a big 6-0 win streak in the UFC over tough and credible fighters such as Parisyan, Diaz and Riggs. I was surprised that Diego never received his title shot after the Parisyan fight but I do recall Diego stating that he wasn't too fussed and "his time will come". Anyways, would love to know everyone's opinions of what they thought of Diego before his loss to Koscheck at UFC 69? Please set your mindset and views to Diego pre UFC 69 only.
