Penn I think. Champ at two different weights and crushed all his competition when he was a his best, wiped out a division until Edgar came along.

The reconstituted LW division that BJ dominated was very weak compared to the one Edgar came into when he took the belt from Penn. BJ had a tiny run in that division and his record is very thin.

His win over Hughes keeps BJ in the conversation, not his LW run. Without that win over Hughes no would talk much about BJ and his LW run.

Succinctly the correct answer.

Hughes actual MMA career >>>>>>> Bj Penn.

That has nothing to do with BJ being a legend.

100% agree. BJ Penn for many years fought off of pure talent. if he actually had training camps for fights and was that motivated Penn we always want to see it would have been different.

Penn all the way. Hughes sure as hell wouldn't have survived 3 rounds vs Machida.
