It may be for different reasons, but two-weight-class champion BJ Penn believes that both he and his UFC 137 opponent, Nick Diaz, are in must-win situations on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
“I kind of look at it, we’re both in a must-win position. I love to do this. I love to do mixed martial arts. I love fighting for the UFC,” Penn stated about his own situation, before adding, “Nick’s here to prove himself, that he’s here to stay, and that he is a title contender.
“Both of us have a lot of pressure on us come Saturday night.”
