BJ Penn has officially agreed to face Diego Sanchez at UFC 105 November 14, 2009 in Manchester England. These reports come directly from Dave Meltzer from Yahoo Sports and The Wrestling Observer.
Penn will look to win two in a row after a win at UFC 101 over Kenny Florian.
Sanchez is 2-0 as a lightweight with wins over Joe Stevenson and Clay Guida.
Meltzer also reports that this will be on Spike TV and Not PPV.
This fight will compete directly with Manny Pacquiao vs. Miguel Cotto which airs live on PPV that night. Time will tell if this strategy will reduce the number of PPV buys for Pacman’s fight since it will be at night on Paid TV and the UFC free during the day.
