its a win win fight for me i like both fighters, however i feel Sanchez is the fighter that has the higher chance of winning.
I think the plan will be keep it standing for the 1st couple of rounds working at a very fast pace, i would expect Sanchez to consider take downs etc well into the 3rd round for G'n'P.
Sanchez wins maj points

Stefan Struve
Donald Cerrone
Glover Texiera
Cub Swanson
Kim Dong - Hyun.

I think Sanchez will try to implement the same game plan as GSP as he has excellent conditioning and a similar physique strength wise. Think this fight is going to a lot closer than most people think.

I see BJ subbing Diego round 2 or 3. BJ will stuff Diego's takedown attempts and work the jab, Diego will get reckless and BJ will get him down and probably choke him out.

My hatred for BJ has lightened over the last few months. He seems to be focusing a little more on fighting and a lot less on telling everyone how great he is. Having said that, my money is still on Diego. I think Nightmare will set a pace that will overwhelm BJ. BJ is great at keeping things where he wants them, both in position and in timing, but I don't think he'll have that option against Diego.

I will say this though, if BJ wins, it will not be by decision, Diego will be looking at his first stoppage loss.

Sure, Diego has a good ground game. But BJ is one of the best. Arguably the most talented fighter in MMA at the moment. In the past he hasn't used hard work to go with his undoubted natural ability, that looks to be changing.

I think BJ will end this fight the way he ends most fights against guys with a good ground game:

Expect that to happen in the second or third round.

Yep once he takes his opponents' back it's game over usually. He's like a boa constrictor. Still think he should have won against Hughes II. Simply ran out of time by like maybe 10+ seconds. But it's those losses that made him to what he's become today. He was never into conditioning before. With Todd working on his strength/conditioning program don't think I've ever seen him in that shape. He looked phenomenal against Kenny Florian. Too bad it got overshadowed by Silva vs Griffin that night though.

hehehe, people who think Diego will win make me laugh, Sanchez is a glorified brawler stand up wise, he pushes the pace but swings wildly and leaves his face wide open something somebody as acurate and powerful as Penn can expose, his wrestling is average maybe a little above average but Penn has the best TD defense in MMA so that is nullified and frankly if anyone thinks Diego is gonna submit Penn they are delusional, simply put Sanchez is a brown belt (fairly good one but a brown belt none the less), BJ is a world champion black belt, thats like saying the arena football champions are gonna beat the superbowl champs, not saying that playing arena football is not an accomplishment but your not even in the same league for a reason.

BJ Penn is far and away the most overrated fighter in mma. Sanchez comes out like he did against Guida and wins via TKO RD1
