B.J. Penn vs Nick Diaz fight prediction for UFC 137 with Chael Sonnen (Video)

Chael Sonnen, former number one middleweight contender and self-proclaimed "Peoples Champion," breaks down the UFC 137 main event between B.J. Penn vs. Nick Diaz, which will take place this Saturday night (Oct. 29, 2011) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sonnen likes the 170-pound showdown a lot, even though he thinks it won't be "overly exciting." In the end, he predicts Penn to earn the victory, saying that his ground game, combined with Diaz's lack of recent top-level competition, will be the key difference makers.

Affliction's Tom Atencio, meanwhile, sides with Diaz. Whose side are you on?
