Marc Diakiese demonstrated in jaw dropping fashion at UFC FN 107 why he’s viewed as one of the promotion’s top prospects at 155. But, according to “Bonecrusher”, he’s already one of the UFC’s best lightweights, period.
Following Diakiese’s electrifying, one punch knockout of Teemu Packalen last weekend, he appeared on the latest “MMA Hour“. While doing so, Diakiese made the following proclamation (quote via MMA Mania):
“For me, I’m number one. I’m right at the top. Listen to what I am telling you today, I am right at the top, believe that…”
“I’m telling you, I am right at the top and if anybody wants to fight me I will be there. I’ve traveled a lot and I know people who I’ve sparred with. I know sparring is different, but, I just know where I stand with these guys.”
It will be interesting to see if Diakiese gets a top 15 ranked fighter next, and if his undefeated run continues…
