After another fun, free MMA weekend we turn once again to the Potato Index to tell us where everyone stands. Those of you who are confused by what the numbers mean, just think of every fighter starting at his own particular zero coming into the event. Then we make up a number to reflect how far he’s climbed or fallen after his latest fight. Kind of like the stock market, but way more fun and only slightly more bullshit.
Diego Sanchez +104
Whatever you think the final scores should have been, Sanchez won that fight. He was a whirlwind on the feet and even managed to be the aggressor from the bottom when it hit the mat. But does a decision victory here equal a title shot? We wouldn’t mind seeing Sanchez vs. Gray Maynard to establish a clear contender.
