UFC lightweight fighter Diego Sanchez comments about BJ Penn’s performance during a UFC 94 teleconference:

“After seeing BJ’s performance against St. Pierre, man, I’d say it’s a bad time for him to fight anybody right now …. Man, that guy has zero cardio and he goes into the biggest fight of his life with that type of cardio and endurance? I’ve never gotten tired in a UFC fight. I’ve never gotten caught tired in a fight. And to see this guy be that exhausted after one round? I know GSP is tough, but comon. He burned himself out in the first round just defending those takedowns.”

“I think its a bad time for him to fight Kenny Florian,” he continued. “As long as Kenny Florian lasts past the first, second round, I think he’s going to take over with conditioning. I don’t care how talented you are. If you don’t have gas in the tank – if the Ferrari doesn’t have the gas in the tank, it ain’t going to finish the quarter mile, and that’s the bottom line.”

Sanchez will take on Joe “Daddy” Stevenson at UFC 95 on February 21st.
