    That will be a good fight. Roan doesn't have the best record but he is more than a handfull for alot of fighters. He is pretty strong and has good chokes (anaconda choke) witch he almost caught Jon Fitch with twice in there battle. Deigo is already a pretty slippery guy with great groundskills, but I hoped he upped his strength training as he seamed to have a problem with Fitch's strength and Roan has about equall in that aspect.

    The guy's losses are from some of the best like Anderson Silva, Fitch, and Chonan. I thought he matched up well against Fitch too. I think its going to be an exciting matchup and a good add to 82.

    Who else is on this card? I like Diego, and if the rest of the card looks good I might just go to this one.

    Yeah, I don't think this will be an easy fight for him. Although, just by styles Diego may be a little harder to catch in a submission. I think I'd give the edge to Diego.

    ya thats true when i think about it i think this fight is a good one for deigo but i still dont think it will be easy by any means

    Is Deigo shrinking? On season 1 of the TUF he was 5'11, but if you look up his stats he is 5'10, and last he was introduced in a fight he was 5'9. They always get that shit wrong. I think a drop to 155 would be best for him, being his size a few years ago wasn't that big of a deal, but now we're getting some taller bigger welterweights who are cutting some serious weight to make the division.

    Although i still think he could be very good in the WW division, not champ, i believe a move 155 would be smart esecially if he learns to strike. Once he becomes a good striker Diego will be a serious threat
