I actually think Diego has a chance in this fight. Its pretty much like the Hughes fight. If he can get past rd 2 he can take it. But I think BJ wins this one.

BJ by sub. He is a man on a mission right now. I don't see him losing again for a while. He is the most talented and well rounded fighter in mma outside of Fedor. He will be back.

I think that BJ realizes he is at a cusp of his career - if he pulls himself together and starts to attain his potential he'll have a long career with more title shots and maybe a belt in the future, otherwise if he continues to lose he will be yesterdays news in the short term.

I think Bj has such raw talent that if he focuses himself he'll be able to move forward and put his loss to Hughes behind himself. And yes I think that he can take Sanchez, although BJ has to be in awesome shape to handle Sanchez if it goes to three rounds. If this fight happens and it should, I predict BJ by submission in round 2.

That also could be a good fight, Diaz and BJ have both underachieved this year...both great fighters. Either way id be pumped to see Bj fight Sanchez or Diaz, it would be a good test, but we will have to wait until january/february to see BJ go round again.

They could do a Belfort vs Ortiz type deal with Diaz vs Penn. One guy goes on to better things, and the other fades away into obscurity. I'm a huge fan of both men, so I'd watch it.

Everyone is hating on penn and they don't even realize it.

"penn needs to get his act together"

"If penn trains hard...."


Do you guys realize that Penn was dominating hughes and it is very likely the only reason he didn't continue that dominance was because of an injury? Everyone gets that If the injury didn't occur, hughes would probably have lost 2nd round. But what people dont' get, is that its very possible that BJ trained well enough so that he would have continued to dominate 3,4, and maybe all 5 rounds of that fight if it went to decision.


BJ Penn is a natural talent and has had some rough luck; if he just comes back with what he already brought vs hughes; I find it unlikely for anyone besides GSP or a completely matured Sanchez(under fedor's training) to compete with him. To be honest I think the only man as skilled and smart as penn is Fedor himself.

I can't see this fight happening. It makes no sense from a business perspective for the UFC. If Diego wins, he becomes the next contender for the belt, which he would be regardless. If BJ wins, he remains #3 in the division and I don't think there's much interest in seeing BJ vs Hughes or GSP so soon after losing to both of them. At the same time they lose Diego as a legitimate contender in the near future, which they sorely need. Seems like there's nothing to gain and everything to lose.
