UFC 107 | The Prodigy Destroys His NightmareCategory: MMA
B.J. “The Prodigy” Penn is currently ranked by Sherdog and MMAWeekly as the #1 Lightweight fighter in the world.
He is one of the best mixed-martial artists ever having been only the second fighter to win UFC titles in two different weight classes (the other being Randy Couture).
He is the current UFC lightweight champion and was the welterweight champion in 2004. Seeking constant challenge, he jumped from division to division. He won great fights against top competition but lost ones as well. 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 lightweight title against Kenny Florian on August 8, 2009 at UFC 101.
Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez is a former King of the Cage (KOTC) Welterweight Champion. He first came into the Octagon as 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.
B.J. Penn (14 wins-5 losses-1 draw) is one of the best in the business. He is an expert Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner becoming the first non-Brazilian to win the black-belt division of the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His stamina and conditioning were always questioned but he silenced his critics in a wonderful performance against Kenny Florian at UFC 101.
Diego Sanchez (21 wins-2 losses) is an all-around explosive fighter who is never afraid to mix it up with anybody. His last two bouts against Joe Stevenson and Clay Guida were a testament to his heart and skills.
Penn is in the best shape of his career. He will have a hard time against the relentless Sanchez but will keep him at bay on the way to Unanimous Decision victory.
