Sherdog.com is now withdrawing its claim that Diego Sanchez will be taking on BJ Penn at UFC 74. Sherdog withdrew its claim after BJ Penn’s camp released a statement denying any deal between the two fighters for UFC 74. The news of the fight seemed awkward, because BJ Penn is in line to fight for the lightweight title against the winner of Sean Sherk vs. Hermes Franca at this weekends UFC 73.
“B.J. Penn’s camp informed Sherdog.com that the 28-year-old Hawaiian would not face Diego Sanchez in August, though the possibility wasn’t ruled out for a later date.”
