I think Diego's got a good chance. I would give him a 40% chance of winning. This isn't a boxing match, Penn as much as I love him has been known to get stuck if he can't bully someone. He's fighting a fearless Diego that's relentless with a strong chin, good striking (he might not be technical as BJ but he mixes it up more than BJ), has good sub defense, and has a longer reach (BJ won't jab away so easy like Sherk and Joe). Since the drop there hasn't been a point that Diego was ever in trouble. I still think BJ is at the moment an all around better fighter but I think Diego is alot more hungry than BJ and IMO is mentally stronger. By will alone, he'll be the hardest match for BJ in LW.
