I wouldn't even rank that in the top 10 MMA bouts of the year. Too one sided and there's a whole lot of talent outside the UFC, mind you.
Sanchez stand up is far from top notch. The way he runs behind his punches doesn't generate a lot of power, he pushes his punches and they're nothing more than arm punches. They're fast though. Not fast enough for BJs head movement

Penn looked the best hes ever looked and i dont see ANYONE at 155 that can match up to him.
I've thought for a long time Shinya Aoki will be the only real contender but even he wont be able to handle BJs stand up... and you'll never see that fight in the UFC. Eddie Alvarez would be entertaining as hell too.
