Karo Parisyan, Nick Diaz,Kenny Florian, I’ll throw Joe Riggs in there. These are nobodies? If so who is somebody? And how many of those somebodies does he need to beat before you feel he is good enough for a title shot.
The only reason he hasn’t fought the bigger names in the UFC is politics and nothing more. The UFC has to get the most out of the fighters they have already established and put money into. Sure we’d all like to see Diego vs Matt Hughes or GSP now or whatever, but when you have previous fights that take precident you’ve got to make room.
Matt vs BJ part 2 had to take place, so Diego fights lesser dudes, Matt vs Gracie, GSP vs BJ, Matt vs GSP 2, GSP vs Serra due to the tv show taking precident etc etc.
Diego is a good fighter, he has fought other good fighters, he will eventually get a chance against the best fighters, win or lose tonight.
Dislike the guy all ya want, but to dislike him because of his opponents or lack thereof (in your mind) makes little to no sense. He isn’t ducking fights and I doubt you somehow think he has the ability to pick his fights. If you want to be upset be upset at the UFC.
Blows my mind.
