UFC 107 is only days away and you can rest assured that Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez is mentally ready. He is calm, focused and ready for war. Is he the one to finally dethrone BJ Penn long time title holder in the lightweight division, well Diego himself believes it’s his time now.
“If you want to beat the best, you have to fight the best. I suppose I’ve wanted to fight him since back when he beat Matt Hughes for the [welterweight] title. I always wanted to train with B.J., but it never happened. I suppose it was for a reason. It’s a good thing we never got together and trained. Now, we’re going to go to war. It’s going to be like chess…. I’m rigged differently. In my mind, I’m going to beat whoever I’m in the cage with. You’ve got to believe in yourself. I believe it’s my time. Everything in my career built up to this moment. Everything feels right.”
