MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

UFC 107 Extended Trailer: Penn vs. Sanchez, Mir vs. Kongo, Florian vs. Guida


(Props: YouTube.com/UFC)

The UFC hits Memphis for the first time on December 12th, and even though the card is short an Alves and a Duffee, it’s still going to be an enjoyable night of fights. Headlining the card is BJ Penn‘s latest lightweight title defense against Diego Sanchez, who Joe Rogan describes as "crazy in the best way possible." Sanchez already believes that he’s the best 155-pounder in the world, and looks forward to proving it to the rest of us. Penn is only looking to have some fun out there, and live his dream for one more night. "I’m going to race you to the center of that ring, player," Sanchez says. "Feel your legs burning in the third round. Feel your lungs gasping for air, but you don’t get no oxygen. That’s what BJ Penn’s gonna feel come 12/12."

But wait, there’s more. Frank Mir wants Cheick Kongo to know that "he’ll never be the same human being when I get out of that cage with him…when I get a hold of him, it could be the last time he ever gets to compete as an athlete. You’re going to see the difference between a well-rounded martial artist versus a guy who never expanded upon his abilities." Kongo, whose feelings are clearly hurt, warns Mir about his big mouth. And finally, Kenny Florian and Clay Guida look to get back to lightweight contendership following recent high-profile losses. The complete UFC 107 lineup is after the jump; your predictions are appreciated.

BJ Penn has gone from elite to borderline boring, I wish he would just hang it up already.

Can't say that BJ Penn has it anymore, we have a mutual lawyer and he says Penn has been partying too much. Check out Pro Bono Divorce Lawyers

Guida didn't show his talent in this fight. The following 2 years he showed a much better approach. I think he changed his diet and eating habits which transformed him.

Penn via 4th round gnp face smashing (followed by glove licking)
Mir via Congo's complete lack of ground game
Fitch via 3rd round rear naked humiliation
Guida via annoying chimp-style lay 'n' pray decision
Struve via 2nd round strangulation

I wonder if Diego is bringing his buddy Dan Quinn to be in his corner. Do you think the athletic commission tests for Stevia? You know he'll be snorting lines of that shit between rounds.

Penn... always

Frank Mir subs Cheick Kongo

Jon Fitch decision every time

Kenny will cut Clay's melon wide open in the first 30 seconds of that fight. I'd love to see Clay win; because, I've been pulling for him ever since KotC. My heart says Guida, my rational mind says Florian.

Paul Buentello vs. Stefan Struve, huh? I'd way rather see Wiman, Palhares, or DaMarques. I really don't care about this fight.

I'm surprised there are as many people picking Sanchez over Penn.. How soon we forget how Penn made Florian look like an amateur.. Sorry Sanchez, you're hungry, and you're skilled, but you're not beating Penn in his prime (which, to be honest, I consider this his prime. He hasn't looked as good in training or in fights as he has the last couple outings..)

Man, the UFC needs to get some HBO 24/7 type stuff going. I need more of Diego's craziness.

Best card in a while, really excited about it.
DICK_KICK- November 30, 2009 at 10:14 pm
Penn, f#ck Diego
Mir, sub
Fitch, beastly and still gets no respect from the UFC
Guida v Florian could go either way
Struve, Buentello is a boxer

Yeah I got Diego by TKO stoppage.
Mir should submit kongo cause Kongo has no ground game.
Fitch by total and complete destruction, maybe KO of the night.
Florian will get beat to hell but win by sub, most likely rear naked.
I think Buentello will chop Struve "chop it down with the edge of my hand-Voodoo child" style , ha.

When Sanchez goes after Penn the same way he went after Guida, forget about it. Penn's gonna think GSP has a little latino brother. Then he'll accuse him of greasing, steroids, and crystal meth. He'll have to bring meth in because that's something new.
Mir's gonna take it since I have never seen Kongo do anything. Who the fuck is Mustapha al Turk? Sounds like something out of the WWF. Building him up is reminiscent of using Rashad Evans' big knockout of Sean Salmon as fuel for the publicity machine. Salmon was a big pile of insignificant shit then, and look at his awesome career today!
Florian reads too much of his own press. As in, after seeing GSP destroy Penn, he was telling himself, "Hey, I'm technical. I've been working on my strength training a lot. I have good cardio, I can take the title..." Kenny, you got smoked by Penn because you forgot that you're not in his or GSP's league when you got your shot, and you looked like a guy who was fighting way above his level. He embarassed you. Remember that, 'cause Guida is going to make you wish you had called in sick that day with his, shall we call it, "uniqueness".
Fitch.
Buentello - is this guy still around?

My Prediction?

I'm picking Diego by positive thinking. YES! YES! YES!

Penn
Mir
Guida
Fitch

The only thing Sanchez is winning is the award for awesome focused entrance. Hopefully Aoki is watching.

WARRRR PENN!

Yeah, only Barnett didn't cheat he's just such a bamf that his body produces abnormal amounts of hgh and other performance enhancing drugs.

Just like sherk.

Skeletor calling someone a troll is like Josh Barnett calling Cyborg a cheater. Take that shit with a grain of salt, homie.
exes.for.iballs- November 30, 2009 at 4:32 pm
@skeletor

Trolling? Anyone who's seen Palhares fight would never say such a thing. You better jump on the band wagon now that way you can say you liked him before it was cool.

Kinda like how I liked Leonard Garcia back when he was shoot fighting in rodeo arenas. Although I guess its not really cool to like Leonard Garcia.

Sanchez wins the foot-race to the centre of the octagon, loses the fight in the octagon

Kongo by big mouth-shuttage

Guida climbs on Kenny's back and refuses to get off for 15 minutes

@exes.for.iballs
You've got to be trolling for arguments with that one.

Penn-Just so Diego finally kills himself

Mir-Talk Congo into suicide with his overinflated sense of self worth

Guida-what the fuck do you think

Fitch-Will continue to beat nobodies until the UFC forces him to start fighting team mates since he'll never beat GSP

Buentello-who the fuck cares
exes.for.iballs- November 30, 2009 at 3:55 pm
What the hell!? Why is Palhares fighting on the undercard when he's our only hope of beating Anderson?!


Anyway, Penn by KO from flying crotch thrust


Palhares by flying gogo in 14 seconds.

The rest who cares..
se7ensenses- November 30, 2009 at 2:51 pm
BJ will win by TKO from drinking the blood of his enemies
Kongo by stoppage due to kneeing Mir repeatedly in the junk
Fitch by EAR naked choke
Guida by lay and pray cave man hammer fists. unga bunga
and Struve by random act of freak show height

A lot of FFF's.
