While I agree that the result of their first fight would've made it (along with other reasons like losing and weight cutting) more natural for Penn to return at LW, the result of that first fight also sways perceptions of a 3rd fight in a too extreme direction.

Complaints would somewhat turn to praises if the judges had scored it the way the large majority saw it, like with the making of Penn/Hughes 3 after Penn's losses at LW.

He's a fan favorite and he's marketable.

With that, if he beats BJ, he'll have one fight, then a title shot.

Maaaaaaaybe two fights after Penn, if the division is clogged like it is now, but even then, thats a big stretch.
