During the UFC Lightweight Championship bout at UFC 107 between BJ “The Prodigy” Penn and Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez, BJ Penn delivered a high kick to the Diego Sanchez’ forehead opening a nasty gash which quickly covered Nightmare’s face with blood.
Judge stopped the fight after the kick and later ended it declaring BJ Penn a winner by technical knockout. It was a 5 round fight which lasted all 5 rounds, though BJ Penn dominated Diego Sanchez throughout. If it wasn’t for Diego’s heavy chin, the fight would have ended much sooner. The man can take a lot of heavy beating.
Out of 214 attempts, BJ Penn landed 150 strikes, of which 137 struck Sanchez’s head. Diego Sanchez on the other hand attempted to land 198 strikes, but only landed 8 in the entire fight. That being said, I still consider BJ Penn to be the pansiest of all MMA fighters who only had good flexibility going for himself, but was otherwise vastly useless.
UFC 107 fight was held on December 12, 2009 at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee. Video of the kick which ended the fight is below:
