Re: Diego Sanchez vs BJ Penn

UFC 105 I've heard.

He deserves the shot. I think BJ wins.

Re: Diego Sanchez vs BJ Penn

Once BJ beats Diego, who's really left at 155? He'd smash Frankie Edgar or Maynard.

Re: Diego Sanchez vs BJ Penn

I believe this could be better described as. BJ Penn vs. BJ penns boredom. I don't think Diego can touch an even half way motivated Penn but Penn is notorious for not staying motivated long.

Re: Diego Sanchez vs BJ Penn

I think it is funny that no one gives diego a chance....good wrestler, scrambler and BJJ guy, who unlike Kenny will push BJs cardio hard. The only place bj dominates is standing. I am actually really looking forward to this fight. That being said I did think Forrest and Anderson would be close.

Re: Diego Sanchez vs BJ Penn

I think Diego is a great fighter, but Penn is the man. I like them both, should be a good fight.

Re: Diego Sanchez vs BJ Penn

What is Joachim Hansen going to UFC now? I wish the UFC would open up and allow fighters to open contracts.

Eddie Alvarez would definitely give BJ a battle. And Shinya Aoki would really put his jits to the test.
