...I'm not counting Diego out but his chances are slim...

...We all know in this sport anything can happen. Diego Sanchez has to bring it like never before. I think the only way Diego can win is to try and knock B.J. out, which is nearly impossible. Penn would have to eat multiple flush shots on the chin to get dropped. It won't happen. Penn is too slick and elusive. B.J.'s takedown defense & dexterity is insane.
...Diego's best chance is to not shoot in & keep it on the feet hoping he can get Penn to gas. If B.J.'s cardio is like it was with Ken-flo, he won't gas. If it somehow goes to the ground, Sanchez is toast. Diego has very good ground skills but B.J.'s is world-class and then some. Sanchez, like Ken-flo pushes a blistering pace but I still see B.J. retaining his belt. Penn is just too damn good...
