Diego Sanchez Offered UFC 105 Title Fight With BJ Penn
With the UFC headed back to the UK for UFC 105 in October, the card is beginning to take shape and it appears a lightweight title fight between Diego Sanchez and BJ Penn could be headlining the event.
A source close to Diego Sanchez has confirmed to Fighters Only that he has been offered a fight with BJ Penn at UFC 105.
“The fight has been put on the table,” the source said last night. “But nothing has been signed and nothing is confirmed at this stage.”
Sanchez is the top contender in the lightweight division following Kenny Florian’s unsuccessful title challenge earlier this month.
Florian lasted four rounds before being taken down and eventually submitted by Penn, who has not lost at lightweight since 2002.
