The UFC has a big decision to make as there is virtually no buddy in the 155 pound division that can even compete with BJ Penn. For 5 rounds BJ Penn beat down Diego Sanchez until Herb Dean called the fight at 2:37 of the 5th round.

It was one-sided from the opening seconds, as Sanchez had no answers for Penn. The Hawaiian knocked Sanchez down in the fight’s opening seconds and nearly finished him in the first 45 seconds. After that, it was just a beatdown until the fight was stopped because of a massive gash on Sanchez’s forehead.
