Diego Sanchez beat Takanori Gomi at UFC on Fuel 8 in Japan, via a spilt decision (see below). The judge's call raised some eyebrows, including those of UFC president Dana White who tweeted “How the f--- did Diego win that fight!? Crazy s---”.

In his defense, Sanchez was coming off a year long layoff due to injury, dropped to welterweight, was fighting on the other side of the planet from home, and, was fighting Takanori Gomi.

Sanchez with Fuel TV after the bout’s conclusion.

“I feel fortunate to be off the injury list and back in the Octagon doing what I love,” said Sanchez. “I don’t think this victory was given to me, I think I earned it.”

When asked who he wanted next, Sanchez was direct.

“Nate Diaz,” he said. “I want to be the first one to say I beat both the Diaz brothers. I got the big brother, I want the little one next.”

What do you think UG? Do you want to see Diego vs. Diaz? And who do you think would win?

I see no way he beats Nate Diaz at this point in his career. Nick also beats him in a rematch. Phone Post

I think he should have to prove himself against someone like Varner first, work his way up. Phone Post

Nates win over Gomi was the very definition of one-sided. He lights Diego up any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Gomi must have hurt Diego worse than I thought. Nate would absolutely destroy him, hell maybe even end his career. That being said I would love to see Diego go out in a blaze of glory albeit going out cold. Phone Post

Makes the most sense but UFC will probably give it to him since they seem to love call outs and they could sell it pretty well if they act like Diego is still in his prime. Phone Post

My first thought was "What the hell is Diego doing calling out a contender after a loss? Oh... wait..."

I've never seen Diego in such bad shape. Nate would probably finish him.

If diego fights tentative like last night he would lose, but if he went after him like he did with nick and like how he usually does he can beat him. Would be a great fight.

In an age where people are fagging out of any fight they might lose and laying all over people to get a cheap W, it's kind of refreshing to hear a fighter say whatever pops into his head, and call out top comp.

Diego just doesn't give a damn...and I like it.

Came to say exactly this. Diego has had some amazing fight in his career but he's at the tail end. Nick and Nate are at the top of the food chain in their careers right now and both of them would whoop that ass. Phone Post
