    Betting odds set Pearson as a clear favorite. Is that right? Cause i fon't see him knocking out Diego or making him tap.

    Pearson by decision?
    Diego by decision?
    Diego by RNC?

    What do you think?

    His striking is worlds better than Sanchez. Pearson also has sound TDD, and cardio.

    It's the right choice.

    Having said that Diego is probably going win due to bat shit craziness.

    I think Diego's stock is at an all time low and public opinion of him is lower than it should be. I expect a close fight especially with Diego in front of the home crowd. I am betting Diego @+150.

    Pearson by decision seems like the smart pick, though I agree that it's unlikely Diego can be finished here.

    wouldn't be surprised if Diego overwhelmed him.

    Well you can throw the Kampmann fight out the door as well. Martin got robbed big time. Diego should be on a 5 fight losing streak and his latest win should be from 2010.

    So Diego hasn't really won in almost 4 years. He brawls and hopes he can get a lucky KO. If he doesn't, he's done.

    Pearson should take this handily, unless Diego gets lucky or the judges are in his favor yet again.

    The Gomi fight. He actually won that. It says so on his record. :icon_chee


    Oh and Pearson should be a clear favorite. He's gonna box Sanchez up something fierce. We should see footwork and good angles from Pearson which is Sanchez's worst nightmare.

    Diego is one of my fave fighter but lets be honest, he is becoming terrible. Awful striking defense and his takedowns suck now. I still hope he gets his shit together though.

    Pearson doesn't have the power to keep Diego off him imo. Diego will eat a few hundred punches and have his face turned into hamburger mince once again but will catch him eventually.

    Pearson is a striker while Diego is a brawler. I'd put money on the former every time.

    Diego seems like a good bet considering the absolutely absurd robberies he's gotten vs Kampmann and Gomi.... he doesn't even need to win the fight to get the W.

    Diego has become a brawler at this point. The only people he's gonna beat is someone who stands there and trades with him, and even if someone does that, he's still not guaranteed to win.

    I expect Ross to stick and move. Incorporate some clinching and maybe work for a TD. It won't be on Ross' best interests to stand and trade.
