I struggle to see how a 23-2 record isn't impressive, it's not like he's been fighting all can's in the UFC.
I'm not saying Sanchez will beat Penn, I don't believe he will, but I think he's getting pretty harshly criticised on here. I think he's a talented fighter that's going to push BJ Penn hard, challenge him in the stand-up and challenge him on the ground. This isn't going to be an easy fight for BJ Penn.
