BJ Penn credits Manny Pacquiao for his sensational win in UFC 107

Penn punished Diego Sanchez all night long en-route to a 5th round doctor's stoppage victory to retain the UFC Lightweight Championship with a swift head kicked that busted Sanchez's forehead open.

When asked by the media in the post-fight press conference of UFC 107 about his sensational performance, "The Prodigy" BJ Penn was quick to point out another heavy-hitting small man from the Philippines who knows a thing or two about knocking people out. Penn said,

"Just like watching Pacquiao how he throws punches in bunches fast. You might get away with from the first 2 or 3 but the next 2 or 3 coming behind that are gonna hit you.. kinda figured that out," and so did Sanchez as Penn steamrolled him with aggression, running him over as if he was Pacquiao himself pummeling Ricky Hatton last May.

Perhaps that is why Penn now faces a similar problem Pacquiao goes through. Who else can beat him in his division? Penn might have to move back up and take another shot at GSP or somebody in the welterweight division because he has absolutely cleaned-out the lightweight stable.

Incidentally, Frank Mir, who defeated Cheick Kongo in the under card also admitted that he had been studying Pacquiao's lethal left punch coming into the bout. Mir knocked down Konglo with a hard left that set up his gillutine choke. In an article by Gareth A. Davies of the Telegraph, Mir had this to say about his overhand left he threw, “It’s something we’ve been saying the whole training camp. We call it “The Pacquiao,” because Manny Pacquiao will step off as a southpaw and throw the overhand left. As soon as I hit Kongo I went to catch him with the uppercut and I didn’t see him, he was on the ground,”
