I just dont see it.

Id say Diego probably has the best chance of dethroning penn out of all of the current lightweight crop, and at this point in time has a tremendous amount of momentum.

All im saying is I wont be surprised if the nighmare walks away with the title.
I agree with ya there. I just hope BJ is not taking him lightly and is training properly.
*fingers crossed* hope bj connects with the uno/sean shrek knee!

Dont underestimate Diego's chin, I believe Diego's got the hardest chin in MMA. BJ's gonna have to dig deep in this fight to get the win. Sanchez wins in the 5th by TKO is my prediction for the 12th. I just think Diego will be too determined in his first title shot to let BJ dictate.
BJ's will win the first 2 round's then Sanchez will slowly wear down on BJ's cardio.

...All this talk about B.J. gassing. What if Sanchez gasses out trying to put Penn away early and fails? If Sanchez goes after Penn guns blazing like he did against Guida, B.J. will stop him in his tracks. Penn is very calculating and wouldn't stand there like Clay did and trade bombs. Penn would use tie him up & use his elusiveness. Whatever the case, the fight is gonna be good.

Good point. BJ being quiet might just mean that he is getting serious. Diego's intensity will test Penn's conditioning. On paper, it doesn't look like Diego will come out on top...but just in case, BJ should tell his brother not to bring the towel.
