    Granted, Diego isn't remotely a Mensa Card candidate but after listening to his post fight interview, he sounded more "punch drunk" than normal. Yes, he JUST finished fighting but how much more damage can he take with his type of "berserker" style without sustaining permanent damage? What say you?

    No, he's still got plenty fights in him and the entertainment is never ending.

    However, he'll never be a champion.

    Man Sanchez needs money. Honestly he knows the way he fights is dangerous but it's all he can do.

    He isn't fast.
    Doesn't have knockout power
    Isn't strong

    OP needs to give up starting threads.

    What are you expecting after than? The most epic post fight speech in the history of the sport?

    he is probably at the peak of his fame in the ufc now that its bigger than ever. I think he has a shot at making big money in 2-3 fights before he should retire. he didnt sound too great in the interview i agree. Im sure he spars like an animal too.

    He sure takes a lot of punishment in his fights, but he could have had some kind of swelling in his mouth that made him speak like that.

    Hell of a fight!!

    he sounded severely concussed. he took huge damage in that fight, as he usually does.

    it's too early to call but he could easily end up down the gary goodridge path

    the ufc needs to look after his health

    having said that, the fight was amazing.

    Yes. He's come this far though I don't know if he'll go out but "on his shield." Unfortunately. He's been in way too many of these wars. And yes he has to be partly brain-damaged. Not all of that garble is just Diego-talk.

    Diego has a great chin and decent power, but damn the guy will never be champion. He's lucky Gil didn't try any head kicks.
