BJ Penn vs. Nick Diaz: Countdown to UFC 137Posted on October 26, 2011, 06:00 PM by Trent Reinsmith
Nick Diaz and BJ Penn, the fighters that will face off on Saturday, October 29 in the main event at UFC 137 have been fairly quiet during the lead up to the fight. That quiet is most likely due to the mutual respect that is shared between the two. Both fighters have acknowledged that they are on friendly terms and have gone so far as to say that they are not happy to have to meet each other in the Octagon. However, both fighters know what their job is; so don’t expect any punches to be pulled when the cage locks behind them inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Saturday night.
