To say that BJ Penn is better than Nick Diaz in BJJ is an opinion that I firmly disagree with, they are both amazing yet I think Diaz is STILL ON THE SAME LEVEL(I never said he was better).

How was I using MMA MATH? (he beat this fighters, and this fighter beat him, so he would beat him BS) I was just using past fights to dictate how I thought this one would go? If you didn't notice, I didn't say how this fight would end, I just stated that I thought Diego would win. Some of you are just posting BS because you are gripping on to BJ's nuts entirely too hard, (the whole funniest shit you have ever seen) Baby Jay D, with a username like that your obviously on his wangbone so your opinion is null and void because your completely biased.

And Toxic, I wasn't drunk when I posted this, but I did have a few tokes.

It's a shame his title reign will end tonight. Why? A few reasons, and here I will go into detail.

1. The only time BJ Penn has ever faced someone with intensity similar to Diego, he lost. Georges St. Pierre destroyed him. Look for Diego Sanchez to have a similar gameplan.

2. Better standup - Don't hate, its true. BJ Penn has good standup, I'm not neglecting that, but I don't think it is as good as Diego's. He does not have as much power in his punches, and isn't as quick. Diego Sanchez throws FAST. If this fight stays standing, BJ Penn will lose.

3. Better wrestling - BJ Penn has world class BJJ, but his wrestling ability is not as good as Diego's either. The Nightmare has very good wrestling, and I understand he was outwrestled by Jon Fitch and Koscheck, but that was at 170 and has nothing to do with BJ Penn. Since stepping down to LW, Diego looks like a different fighter.

4. More heart - This is based on opinion only, but I have the right to my own opinion and it's just how I feel about the matter. Diego has expressed time and time again how badly he wants this win, and all BJ Penn can talk about is how he loves to fight. It's almost as if Diego Sanchez lives and breathes because of fighting, and BJ Penn does it for fun. I'm not saying doing it for fun is a bad thing either, I'm simply just comparing the two and basing my opinion on it.

5. Defense - Diego Sanchez has very good defense. To my knowledge he has never been finished in a fight. And you will say that he has never faced an opponent with the level of BJJ like he will against Penn, but HE HAS! If you can remember correctly, he faced Nick Diaz on TUF finale and WON THE FIGHT. Nick Diaz is on the SAME LEVEL as BJ Penn when it comes to submissions, you're ignorant if you disagree.

Diego Sanchez will be BJ Penn's NIGHTMARE before Christmas.

P.S. Hope you enjoyed my reasoning, this was not intended to put down BJ Penn in any way, it's just my opinion on why I think he will lose the fight.

I Hate bj penn & hope he gets beaten, but its not gonna be by diego. He Does'nt hit hard enough, He won't be able to get off the mat if penn gets him there & Will be submitted pretty easily IMHO. Also, bj has better hands & hits harder then diego, who could'nt finish guida, Diego's best shot is to survive & completely exhaust penn in 5 rounds & then take advantage, even then he'll have trouble. Again I Hate penn but he could rule lihjt weiht for a lonng while, When he steps up!!! GSP owns him & others can beat him...

I agreed with cdtcpl and toxic's posts! You can call me a nut hugger if you want but BJ has better BJJ, better boxing/striking for SURE (it's ridiculous to say otherwise), better head movement and defense...just as far as wrestling I'll say BJ is better or pretty equal to Diego, but in the end he will beat Diego down and I'll use Diego's busted face as my avatar for a bit.
