UFC 107 Made Official with BJ Penn vs. Diego Sanchez

– According to UFC.com, UFC 107 is official for December 12th from the FedExForum in Memphis. Also confirmed is the rumored main event of BJ Penn defending his UFC lightweight Title vs. Diego Sanchez. Dana White made the following comments on the event:



“In this sport it sometimes takes years for fighters to find the weight class where they’re at their best. I don’t think there’s any question that BJ Penn and Diego Sanchez have finally found their homes at 155 pounds, making the UFC 107 main event a fight between the best Penn and Sanchez we’ve ever seen. BJ hasn’t lost in this weight class in years, and Diego has looked unstoppable in his lightweight fights, and when these two meet in the center of the Octagon, it’s going to make our first trip to Memphis one fight fans will never forget.”
