Man I have been watching mma for over 20 years and how I feel about what I saw it's as if it was my first time watching an mma fight. I am just so proud of Diego Sanchez and what he brings to the table. I have watched football for even longer than mma and I don't get new emotions for football like I did when I saw Diego/Melendez.
What made it even more special is my 7yr old got to watch the fight with me. It was a special bonding moment as he knows how much I love and talk about fighting, but he rarely gets to watch fights with me. Well, he watched Melendez and Sanchez and during the fight he looks up at me and smiles and says, "man this is a good fight dad". I told him I know.
Proudly, I told my son, "Do you see this guy son?(Diego) He has blood all over, he's losing the fight, but he keeps coming forward. He keeps trying to turn the fight around, no matter how badly he appears to be down. He is not giving up Antonio, he's GOING FOR IT. Do you know what that is son? That is what you call, HEART. You cannot teach that but it is amazing to watch".
Thank you Diego Sanchez. You showed my seed, my blood, my son, what heart is all about. I cannot think of a finer example. Thank you Diego, THANK YOU.
Btw I told my son before the fight I was picking Gilbert to win. During the 3rd round, him and I both were rooting for Diego-COME ON DIEGO, YOU CAN DO IT!!! This is a special moment that I will remember forever.
