    This should be a good fight. One of Diegos problems is that his takedowns are not that good. Against certain fighters he could have trouble getting them to the ground where he really shines, and it would be a stand up fight where it could go either way.

    Guida has no stand up and wants it on the ground so I hope this stands into a ground war. Diego is a better scrambler and has better submissions and Guida is just a straight grinder who never stops pressuring. I think Diego will be too much for Guida both on the feet on the ground but I hope it takes place mainly on the ground.

    Our mod thinks any fight involving a TUF will be a good one.

    Enough stepping stone fights already. Seems like a handful of UFC fighters are being used to promote TUF guys. I think Guida is good, but he barely squeaked by Diaz and Sanchez has had so many fights like this. Sanchez will be favored and, instead he should be fighting for the title, or meeting Sherk or Florian, period.

    He won season 1 and think of all TUFs who have had already had title shots - Florian, Quarry, Evans, Forrest, Serra, Cote, Stevenson, Lutter

    I think any fight involving Sanchez typically will be a good one. I judge the fighters by their abilities you tend to knock guys because they were on a reality show.

    Guida is one of the better fighters in the division and has proven his worth with wins over Josh Thomson, Diaz, Danzig, and Aurelio and fights where he should have won against Griffin and Din Thomas. He also was beating up on Huerta before the big knee in the third which I think has led to him being more conservative in his recent fights. I am sure you did not see his fight with Gilbert Melendez but that was also a war.

    Sanchez just moved down to the weight class so I dont have a problem with him not getting a title shot just yet. Florian is next in line for the shot and he has earned it. After that I would expect Diego or the winner of Sherk/Edgar to get the next shot or perhaps they will fight in a number one contender fight.

    Diego would have received a title shot at 170 as they were beginning to push him hard but then he lost to Koscheck.

    Excellent fight.

    Diego did a good job not letting the weight cut affect him against Joe Daddy and that was my only real question about him moving down.

    Guida will push him like he does everyone. I'll be rooting for Guida but I think Diego probably takes this one.

    This should be a great fight. Guida and Sanchez will have a furious pace. I think that Diego can nuetralize Guida's takedowns, and will win by tko.

    Diego beats him up on the feet, is comparable as a wrestler and much better on the ground when it comes to being active with submissions, scrambles, position-grabs, etc., I see Diego taking Guida's back a few times on route to a finish or UD.

    I don't think Guida's going to be as successful cage-smothering Diego as he was with Danzig and Nate.
