    I like Diego, I just think he'd had to have a serious gameplan and a serious commitment to it to be able to win, unless something unusual happens.

    we use percentages for betting

    at least i do

    i measure the percent chance i give a fighter against the actual odds

    diego is getting about 2/5 odds..... for me to bet it would have to be 4:1

    i would've said maybe once, ha.

    personally I don't even think that fight was a fluke so much as it was exposure of gsp's vulnerability on his feet. Not that he sucks, but he isn't anderson silva.

    he is athletic , which makes up for lacks and lapses in technique

    cant train a chin though

    and that punch was really awkward

    Diego has a pretty good chance in this one I feel. BJ won't submit him because Diego lasted with Marcelo Garcia on the ground who is widely considered to be one of the best grapplers out there. If Diego can push the pace for the first few rounds he might have a chance of stopping BJ in the championship rounds the only thing is can he get BJ to the ground to GNP?

    Penn is better striker and grappler, but well...Diego actually has a chance on the ground(if he gets on top). In the stand-up, he'll be outclassed.

    What I thought was gonna happen is EXACTLY what happened. Diego would come to the center of the ring and get dropped and either stopped or his entire game plan would change because he would see his hands ain't fuckin' with BJ's. I knew he wasn't going to even get close at taking BJ down. Like I said, he had a KICKERS chance... Not a punchers because his hands aren't good enough to land on BJ and the only way he was gonna drop BJ with a kick was if he took the center of the ring. There's more traction there where everywhere else you don't get as much power cuz you can't plant on the ground there. So as soon as I saw BJ take the center and control the center for most of the fight, I knew his 5% chance went to 0% and the fight was over.
