If BJ wins in spectacular fashion at 145, why not. He has a huge fan base already. However, i dont think BJ will make that much of an impact to the sport at this current time.

A lot of people could do a lot of things.

I don't think so though. I hope Edgar finishes him this time. 3rd times the charm!

Hope his mama keeps any losses out of the courts or state commissions this time!

I love Penn but come on man. MMA has evolved past him and I love for him to KO Frankie, jump back in and dominate his weight class but that's not happening.

Greatest of all time but he hasn't been all too consistent lately.

I don't think so, it's time of the new starts. Cain, Jones, Pettis and guys like that.

I expect BJ to not win. He, in my opinion is doing himself no favors by continuing to fight, other than padding his pockets with some cash.

Only fighters I like by weightclass
BW: Barao
FW: Aldo
LW: Pettis
WW: Hendricks
MW: Weidman
LHW: Jones
HW: Velasquez

Penn has been a draw in the past and could draw again of he beats Edgar. That's a big if though.

Not hating, BJ is a legend, but he's a bit more of a fighters fighter / hardcore favourite than mainstream star, especially in 2014.

Motivated Penn is a P4P Great, along with Healthy Shogun, Strikeforce Diaz, Chuck With That Look In His Eyes, In Shape Rampage, and Prime Crocop. Much respect to these legends and their diehard fanbases. We all know the reason why Shogun lost to Jones and Sonnen was because he was not healthy for the fight. We all know Chuck did not have that look in his eye when he got knocked out by Franklin and others towards the end of his career. Poor Rampage was not in shape against Bader and Glover, or he would

have whooped both of them. Diaz lost because Condit ran and GSP missed weight. Crocop was not in his prime or he would have knocked out most of the top HW's with his kicks. Much respect to these legends. All 6 of them have never lost a MMA fight according to their fans. Wait a minute- I thought Penn fans were saying that he was motivated for Rory and would destroy him? Penn fans clear this up for me- was Penn motivated or not motivated against Rory?
