UFC 107 reshuffle as Penn vs. Sanchez replaces “Rampage” vs. Evans
MMABay can EXCLUSIVELY confirm that the inclusion of the lightweight title fight between B.J. Penn and Diego Sanchez at UFC 107 in Memphis, Tennessee on December 12th has been done in order to replace the clash between former light heavyweight champions, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans.
The move comes just days after “Rampage” signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to film the big screen version of the A-Team, which has already begun filming in Vancouver, Canada. The timing of the shoot would have left the Tennessee native with next to no time to prepare for the fight and therefore it has been scrapped from the card.
An announcement on this is expected to come in the following days by the UFC who have already secured a new main event that they hope will appease some of the disappointed fans who hoped to see the two season ten coaches of “The Ultimate Fighter” throw down after months of hype.
I guess we will all have to wait until next year.
