UFC 107 Wiki Update Wiki

After a string of underperforming Pay Per View efforts from UFC 102-106 due largely to a rash of fighter injuries, UFC 107’s Lightweight Championship fight between BJ Penn and Diego Sanchez, coupled with a heavyweight battle between hype machine Frank Mir and Cheick Kongo, drew a healthy 620,000 buys for the UFC.


In the main event, Penn thoroughly outclassed Sanchez before finishing him with a TKO due to a cut inflicted by a vicious head kick in the final round, while Mir returned to form by knocking down and choking out Kongo in the co-main event.
