When Diego Sanchez called out Nate Diaz on Twitter, for those who remember the epic fight Sanchez had with the elder Diaz, Nick, it instantly seemed like an excellent fight.
After a little time has passed, those feelings remain.
Diego Sanchez is one of the few men in the lightweight division who is capable of matching the bravado and aggression of Nate; in his fight with Nick, the action was nearly nonstop and was one of the better fights of the year.
Now, with Sanchez coming off a controversial win over Takanori Gomi and Nate looking to rebound from his loss to Benson Henderson, both men would be hungry to make a statement at the cost of the other.
Not only is this an interesting clash of personalities, but styles as well; like his older brother, Nick loves to stand and trade, while Sanchez is all about the business of getting the fight to the ground and finishing it there.
So, should this fight actually be finalized, who would win such a bout?
It’s a hard fight to predict given just how aggressive both men can be; this is a fight that will no doubt be flying all over the octagon, with both men enjoying moments of success.
That being said, we can still do our best to find order in that beautiful chaos, and in doing so, we might get some idea as to who has the upper hand.
