"I don't think Diego belongs at 170. I think it's easier to be at 170. He looked soft. He looked real lethargic and slow and heavy. [One] fifty-five, Diego. Fifty-five. He's a tough guy. I'm not his manager, but I think he should stay at 155. Listen, a loss to B.J. Penn doesn't mean you go back up to 170. It means you stay at 155 and you do what Kenny Florian did. You stay in there and keep grinding it out and beating the top guys, and you get back in line and work your way up to the top again. Diego does not look good at 170."
And after UFC 121 Dana White said basically the exact opposite.
"I love Diego Sanchez at 170 lbs., I think he's strong there"
Here is a link to the video, it is at around the 6:30 mark.
Dana is full of shit, I think we all knew that. It just gets really annoying at times and I wanted to call him out. As for Diego Sanchez, I also like him at 170. There are several good match ups for him there, Nate Diaz, Carlos Condit, rematch Jon Fitch, either way, I know I will be watching.
