Best card of the year imo and there are fights on the under card that could easily be on the main card. Surprised Belcher's not on the main card but im sure we will see that fight (hopefully they do the prelims with that fight and the Palhares fight). I honestly cant wait for this, i wasnt that excited about 106 but the 107 card has given me an erection
I would of loved to see Fitch-Almedia, and Buentello-Duffee instead but yeah this card is very good. Extremely excited for Kongo-Mir.
I'm giving Sanchez a good chance against BJ to, 50/50 on that right now.
Gudia-Kenny is also interesting.
Whether its the best of the year, idk this card has had to deal with injuries as well.
guida will want to keep it hugging. the guys last few fights were like that. i know, i know, that's how he wins, still makes for a boring fight. i think mir/kongo will be a quick tapout by mir, once he gets hit a couple times, that will be it for a standup war.
I think a lot of the luster of BJ's legacy will be gone if he loses to Diego Sanchez. BJ is supposed to at the height of his powers: more mature and humble after GSP handed him a butt whoopin', stronger and better conditioned after hooking up with Marv Marinovich, and obviously at just 30 years of age, his skillset and athleticism are still unquestioned.
BJ has not lost at 155 since his unsuccessful title shot against Jens Pulver years ago. He's got to keep his winning streak alive, and Diego, while a fine fighter, does not possess the heavy hands or crazy BJJ skills that Penn has.
It's another important fight for BJ, who, despite his phenomenal talent, remains a mercurial unpredictable fighter even as he enters his prime.
