UFC’s Dana White: “I Think Diego Sanchez Is Probably Next In Line For A Title Shot Against BJ Penn”

Dana White BJ Penn

BJ “The Prodigy” Penn defended his UFC lightweight belt this past Saturday night against Kenny “Kenflo” Florian at UFC 101 ‘Declaration’.  The Hawaiian fighter acquired a victory over Florian via a rear-naked choke in the fourth round.  Penn answered many media questions as how complete of a fighter he really is, dominating both the stand-up and ground game throughout the entire fight.

During the UFC 101 post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White tells us that Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez is “next in line” to face the UFC 155-pound– BJ Penn.  The former UFC welterweight fighter Sanchez entered the lightweight division immediately after his win against Luigi Fioravanti.  Sanchez is 2-0 in the lightweight division, but has an overall UFC record of 10-2.

From UFC President Dana White:

“The great thing about the 155-pound division is how stacked it is. And I think Diego Sanchez is probably next in line for a title shot against B.J. (Penn).  It’s a great fight.”
