    Yeah for sure, I agree...and if Diego can thrown in a TD or two, he could EASILY steal that fight on the judges' cards!

    Which is why the fight makes sense, it would still be a fairly credible win for Duffy should he win it.........with smaller risk than a better fighter with less name value.

    Agreed, so he watched all the boxers have issues and thought, "hey it's not boxing so I'll be good!"

    Exactly...And like I said, soprts aside, head trauma has ALWAYS been known to have negative effects, so why would an abundance of punches be any different?

    Then it proves that he's not a "Top guy" at all, and it really doesn't matter. If the guy can't beat Diego, he's not going to be able to beat a top-10 LW.

    True enough
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Exactly what I was going to say.

    Not to say he wouldn't get 1 more fight against a much lesser guy and try and build it slowly, but losing to Diego at this stage definitely tells a story.

    Yeah everyone is ASSUMING he's a top guy because of the Conor win, but that was 5 1/2 years ago! I feel like people are putting FAR too much weight (and likely because of the UFC saying it over and over and over) on that fight, and SO MUCH can change in 5+ years.
