"I’m feeling the pure ecstasy of having a war ... A lot of UFC fighters, we dream about going in there and finishing a fight in the first round. But it’s the fights like I had tonight that when you’re an old man you’re like, 'Yeah, yeah, that was a war'.

"You get to call up Martin Kampmann when were like 65 and be like, 'remember when we threw those hooks in the ring?' Those are the wars and the one’s you don’t forget. Whether you’re cut or your hurt ... you don’t forget these no matter what, and they’re fun.

"The whole fight was, ‘It’s going to land, it’s going to land, it’s going to land.’ I was planning on landing that right hook and dropping him. 'It’s going to land, it’s going to land.’ It landed a couple of times but he didn’t drop.

"When it all comes down to it I kind of threw the game plan out the window and made it a street fight, and that’s what I did honestly."

"My plans are to eat green chill chicken chiladas ... hitting the gym ... running my mountains. I promise I’m going to have a very fast recovery.

"Jesus Christ is going to heal me. I’m going to be back in the Octagon soon."

"I love you all my fans out there."

Diego is a strange bird, but Ive been a fan ever since he beat Nick Diaz.

I like a guy that you know is giving it his all, and he's one tough little bastard.

Riley Freeman - Diego is a crazy guy, but he always comes to fight, and no doubt will be remembered as a legend and an ATG years from now.

YES!

 I think he's on drugs.  The drug of Charlie Sheen ... could you see it?  His face looked like it was melting off by the end of the fight!

Nothing but Respect for Sanchez. Cant say that I am fan, but how can you not love the kids heart. Glad his fight got the bonus with a bump up. Now, that being said, I do believe Kampmann should have gotten the "W". Compu-Stats has Kampmann winning the fight. But either way, great fight! Both fighters have made new fans.. Hell, I may start to like Sanchez... maybe a little.. :) Great job by two Warriors! Cheers

How can you not love Diego.

His heart and determination are both outstanding. He may not put on the most technical of performances but at least he always puts on a great show.

I will happily buy any PPV that Diego is on. You know what you're getting from him.

"His face looked like it was melting off by the end of the fight!"

He was weeping from the sight of his own exploded body. Healed himself after the fight in one nanosecond = what winners do (especially winners that just won the fight, which he did because he is a winner and always rolling like one)

I know he's a little crazy, and I DO think Kampman won the fight,

but I gotta love Diego's heart, and I am inspired by him.

He hasn't actually ever been stopped?
I know they called the fight against BJ but you know that crazy sum a bitch would keep fighting till the end. Went out on his shield on that one.

Diego takes his share of flak from fans and there's little doubt he's a strange cat.....but that dude has one of the biggest hearts in the sport (saying alot) and he can take a ridiculous amount of punishment and keep coming. Hes been in some real crazy fights in his time. Much respect to Diego. Phone Post

So you think Kampmann won? What does that have to do with Diego's performance, which was still an amazing display of heart--as usual. Kampmann had the fight he wanted, he kept it on the feet for the most part where he is a much more skilled fighter. And Diego just kept up with him through sheer willpower.

The judging last night rewarded moving forward and swinging for the fences over controlling range and landing a higher percentage of clean shots.

They also seemed to reward 1 successful takedown (that Diego was unable to do anything with) over 14 or so stuffed takedowns.

Kampmann landed more clean shots.. they seemed more effective. Just because Diego wanders forward like a zombie when he gets hit, and Kampmann moves to improve his position when he gets hit, doesn't mean that Diego's strikes / tactic was more effective.

Chuck knocked out a lot of guys moving backwards. Anderson Silva has also done so recently, too. And those are just two high-profile examples.

Great heart from Diego but a true warrior wouldn't have put his hand on the floor to stop his opponent from attacking. A great tactic yes, but not something you could use on the street.

Kampmann won that fight.
