Chael Sonnen Says Nick Diaz Knows He Can’t Defeat BJ Penn Within 15 Minutes

UFC middleweight contender, Chael Sonnen claims that Nick Diaz knows he can’t get the job done against BJ Penn in fifteen minutes and that’s why he’s offered to make it a five-round fight.

Sonnen, speaking via ESPN’s MMA Live, said:

“Let’s not miss what’s really happening here. If you’re a Diaz fan, you’ve got to swallow real hard when he tries to change the parameters that have already been agreed. What he effectively did was come out and say, ‘Look, I can’t get the job done in 15 minutes. Let’s change the agreement’. BJ Penn then says, ‘Hey, I’ve got no problem with it – I can put you away in 15 minutes.’

“The third angle to this is as a fan. Listen guys, I want to see you compete but you’re getting 15 minutes of my time and that’s it. After three rounds, fade to black, roll the credits, I’ve got other things to do.”
