Sorry mr Sanchez but Bj is in a different class to every single 155 fighter out there. I say this fight goes no longer than 3 rounds.

This is not to Sanchez isn't a great fighter because he is but Bj is in a different league, much like gsp + silva are at there respected weight classes

Give the guy some credit.

It took BJ 4 rounds to finish florian (although it did feel like he could of finished the fight at any given time) and Diego is going to put a lot more pressure on Penn and just keep coming, he's got a good chin on him.

Diego is a very well rounded fighter, its clear his stand up has improved vastly, his ground game is solid, he's extremely aggressive, great cardio and has the ability to finish fights. Plus he's a naturally bigger guy than Penn. To say he doesn't stand a chance in this fight is just stupid really, its going to be a great fight.
As a Penn fan, really the only thing that has me concerned is Diego's explosive speed. He dropped and nearly TKO'ed Guida with some powerful shots. But honestly, Diego was going pit for pat with Guida. He threw caution to the wind in many parts of that fight. If that isn't indicative of a brawling type striking style, I'm not sure what is. BJ has crisp and technical boxing that he's used to pick apart the likes of Sean Sherk, Joe Stevenson, and there are plenty more. I don't think it's at all unreasonable either to say Diego probably isn't going to be too eager to take BJ to the ground. That being said, I also believe Diego won't be as aggressive on the feet as he was against Guida. The last thing he wants is BJ to be on top of him with a take down. Realistically, to me, it seems like BJ has the advantage wherever this fight goes.

I love them both but Diego for all the above mentioned lacks power and you might see BJ out box him.....

The problem is, which BJ is going to show up? The fat out of shape gas in 30 seconds BJ or the BJ we saw againsed Kenflo. BJ was plenty motivated for the Kenflo fight because there was a score to settle and he trained his ass off for it. Will he be motivated for the Sanchez fight --> at this point, who knows.

Very true dude, but then since bj has gone back to 155 we have seen the dominant bj show up for every fight. He dominated Stevenson, Pulver, Sherk and looked pretty convincing in his win against ken flo. I personally think we will see the best Bj ever for this fight as i genuinely believe he wants everyone to see how good he actually is. What's the best way to showcase your skills, by making great fighters look mediocre and that's what i personally believe he will do

I did eat crow on that one, won't be the first person or the last one, but I don't mind eating crow when Im wrong hell I'm not even gonna hide behind what could easily be considered a questionable stoppage (Kampmann was on his way out).

I honestly don't think Diego has a chance, his "improved" striking does not impress me at all he swings wildly and leaves his chin wide open.His ground game may be solid but BJ's is phenomenal, Aggressive? Yeah so was Chris Leben and he pushed the pace when he fought Anderson Silva how did that work out for him? Fact is that that BJ's striking is accurate and precise but also powerful which makes it that much more precise. Really the only advantage that Sanchez should have is cardio and judging by BJ's last fight it would appear his new conditioning program is doing wonders for him so I don't see it being an issue even if Diego does manage to survive into the later rounds. I don't dislike Diego, I think he is extremely entertaining to watch and I would absolutely love to see him and Guida go at it again but he won't win this fight but because his tools are simply not on the same level as Penn's.

Hey without insulting the poster who went after Toxic for being wrong against Daley I just want to voice that eating crow is part of being a good contributer on this site and its really not cool to bust balls for someone having to eat crow. Why do I say this? Coz when I analyze fights I sit at the table and put a bib on. Come Saturday night Im either eating steak or crow...usually steak but the fact is I appreciate a post that that doesn't waffle that ends in "It could go either way" yada yada. I thought it was shitty when I saw all the other posters ribbing Toxic for his wrong pick. But people can do what they want but if you think someone's full of shit (I am plenty) then make a sig bet. Don't ignore their opinion for eternity for making a wrong prediction that happened to be biased...its called being a fan.

OK, Someone posted and reminded me Kenny made it 4 rounds...so true! That gives me more Diego hope, YES YeS YES!

You reversed my post predictions, then argued against them back to my original predictions.

Teammate vs teammate? Fine with Tyson Griffin — if it’s for the lightweight title

http://mmamania.com/2009/09/25/teamm...tweight-title/

Quote:
“As far as fighting teammates, it’s kind of an unwritten rule that it happens for titles. If Gray got the title shot, I’d be happy for him and I’d help him train for it. I’d train with him to win. The weight division is stacked. There’s tons of other guys that we can fight if the title’s not on the line. It did feel great (to end a fight by stoppage) but I’m sure that monkey will come right back as soon as a fight goes to another decision.”
Embattled UFC lightweight Tyson Griffin finally gets himself a finish inside the Octagon after knocking off Hermes Franca at UFC 103 on Sept. 19 in Dallas. The talented Xtreme Couture product is the winner of a staggering five “Fight of the Night” bonuses but had gone to a decision in seven straight bouts dating back to 2006, taking heat from fans and media alike in his inability to seal the deal. Does last week’s stoppage over the purple-haired pop tart signify the arrival of the 14-2 Griffin as a serious title contender? Or will he make a “decision” to lurk in the shadows for another year? One thing’s for sure, he has no problem taking on a teammate if that’s the only thing that stands between him and the gold.

I posted on another thread he said this and KOS was sitting next to him agreeing, so why doesnt KOS call out team mates????
