I love Diego, but everyone is saying how good he's looked at 155...has he really? He couldn't finish Stevenson (BJ owned him), he started off great against Clay and only wound up winning a split. Diego's primary strength is wrestling, BJ has insane takedown defense (except against GSP).

Diego has a nice record and good wins in the UFC, but is not as impressive in his wins as it appears.

BJ 4th round rear naked choke



I will have to agree with you, he looks good but he has not look great. I think Penn had a tougher opponent in Kenny.

Pen wins by second round TKO

BJ reportedly has agreed to the fight, now I guess we're waiting on Sanchez. Also looks like the card is still scheduled for Spike in the US.

i will still be surprised to see penn defend his title on a card on spike... but it would be fantastic. especially right before lesnar/carwin the next week. would make 105 actually a great card.
as for the fight, i was leaning towards sanchez, but i think penn will be able to sub him. he subbed florian so nicely, and sanchez doesnt have the jitz florian does. hes a great wrestler, but even if he takes a couple rounds with his style, i think bj will be able to hang around to catch him. WAR PENN!!
