Diego Sanchez vs. Luigi Fioravanti - This should be one of the more entertaining fights of the night.

Sanchez is a huge fan favorite after winning the first Ultimate Fighter. After defeating Kenny Florian in the The Ultimate Fighter 1 Finale, he proceeded to roll through UFC veterans such as Nick Diaz, Karo Parisyan and Joe Riggs. He looked almost unstoppable until his fight with Josh Koscheck. Since that loss, he has a win over David Bielkheden and a loss to Jon Fitch.

Luigi Fioravanti is a striker that looks to end fights with every punch. He does have good takedown defense, but he will have his hands full with Sanchez. I believe Sanchez will get him to the mat and find some submission win. The question is how fast can it do it and in what round... I am guessing Sanchez chokes out Fioravanti in the first round.
