B.J. Penn

Two of the most popular and talented fighters in UFC, BJ Penn and Diego Sanchez, will meet in a welterweight showdown at UFC 74 on August 25, according to Sherdog. Com. Penn, of course, just stopped Jens Pulver at the Ultimate Fighter finale in the Lightweight clash. He was at top in terms of competing for the 155-pound title, but it appears that the Hawaiian is more comfortable at 170 pounds. Sanchez was already rumor to be on card that evening at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, report from a local television station in his hometown of Albuquerque, NM, last month reported that his opponent would be Hayato Sakurai. That seems to no longer be the case, thanks to inside sources from Sherdog. Sanchez is looking to rebound after staph infection and terrible showing against Josh Koscheck at UFC 69-his first career loss. Nightmare was on track to contend for the Welterweight Championship before the upset. Without doubt, winning over uber-talented Penn would put him right back in the hunt. Likewise for Penn, former 170-pound Champion, win over Sanchez will get him that much closer to avenging his losses to Matt Hughes and Georges. Pierre and reclaiming his title. Pierre and Koscheck are also fighting on the UFC 74 card for the right to challenge the winner of UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra and Matt Hughes early in 2008. With UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture also defending his belt against Gabriel Gonzaga, addition of Penn-Sanchez clash would no doubt make UFC 74, once again, one of the more stacked cards in recent memory.

Khabib Nurmagomedov

After the most unpredictable week in UFC history, it felt good to regain some sense of normalcy. Khabib Nurmagomedov beat Al Iaquinta in the main event of UFC 223 on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. He's new UFC lightweight champion. This outcome was expect. Iaquinta was task to face Nurmagomedov only 24 hours prior. Dagestani bruiser is daunting enough for those who are prepared for him; stepping up at just one day's notice is foolish at best. Though there is no such thing as guarantee in mixed martial arts, this fight was as close to one as you can get. Less expect were the twists and turns that brought Nurmagomedov to Saturday night. Here's brief refresher: Conor McGregor, upon seeing Nurmagomedov confront his teammate Artem Lobov in New York City earlier in the week, decided to load up his private jet with a bunch of his friends / goons, fly to New York overnight and show up at Barclays Center on Thursday. Oh, and Nurmagomedov was originally scheduled to face Tony Ferguson, who was replaced by Max Holloway due to injury, only for the New York State Athletic Commission to determine Holloway wasn't medically fit to compete. McGregor's hooliganism caused a total of three fights to be pulled from the card, but it gave Iaquinta opening for an historic upset. Exactly 11 years after Matt Serra upset Georges-Pierre for the UFC welterweight title, Serra was in Iaquinta's corner as he tried to pull off a similar feat. Nurmagomedov continues to be man apart in the UFC lightweight division. He moved his record to an unheard-of 26-0 and has cement himself as the best lightweight on the planet. But it wasn't all roses for 29-year-old; that Iaquinta was able to last all five rounds must be considered as much negative for Nurmagomedov as it was positive for Iaquinta. The new champion bullied Iaquinta on the ground in the first two rounds, but beyond that he decided to keep things standing and trade punches with the hard-head New Yorker. This strategy did not go quite as well, though Nurmagomedov still handily won these exchanges. Nurmagomedov was able to keep his calm demeanor despite fight week that would've upset anyoneand in the midst of preparing for the biggest fight of his career. He passed the test with flying colors. Still, we must remember that Nurmagomedov's experience against the upper tier of UFC's lightweight division is minimal. He's never faced anyone ranked as high as Tony Ferguson or McGregor. It's far from a sure thing that he'd beat either man as easily as he has the rest of his opponents thus far. But for now, in this McGregor-and Ferguson-less moment, Nurmagomedov is clearly the best. After being considered one of the best fighters in the world for the past few years, it is now officially Khabib Time, and Ferguson and McGregor are on the clock.
