UFC 107 | B.J. Penn vs Diego SanchezCategory: MMA
At UFC 107, B.J. “The Prodigy” Penn’s Lightweight Championship title is on the line against Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez.
Their matchup will headline UFC 107: Penn vs Sanchez to be held on December 12, 2009 in Memphis, Tennessee, USA at the FedEx Forum.
B.J. Penn is only the second fighter to win UFC titles in two different weight classes (the other being Randy Couture), after he won the lightweight title at UFC 80, having previously won the UFC’s welterweight title from Matt Hughes at UFC 46. At UFC 94, he challenged Georges St-Pierre for the UFC Welterweight Championship but failed after the referee stopped the fight in the 4th Round giving St-Pierre a TKO win. He successfully defended his title against Kenny Florian on August 8, 2009 at UFC 101.
He is currently ranked by Sherdog and MMAWeekly as the #1 Lightweight fighter in the world.
Diego Sanchez is the winner of the first season of The Ultimate Fighter reality series winning against Kenny Florian in the finale. After compiling a perfect record of 17 wins and no losses, Sanchez suffered two consecutive defeats against Josh Koscheck and Jon Fitch. He seems to be back on the winning track with four consecutive wins; his last two awarded with “Fight of the Night” honors.
