Well based on resumes there are a lot of LWs with better resumes. Gomi, aoki, Frankie, bendo plus some others.

Skill wise is a little more debatable. Like all the top LWs of today

Without a doubt BJ is HOF material.

Not even getting in to ALLLLL the shit he did in his career, being 1 out of only 2 men to ever hold belts in two UFC divisions, is HOF worthy.

BJ's weakness was laziness and loyalty. He quit the Marinovich program because Marv wanted to phase out his "yes" men friends. He performed like he did in BJ/Edgar 3 because he came up with a reason to skip his Nova Uniao training camp because of the Shogun robbery. He was always a fighter(bar the LW title run under Marv) that took the easy way out training wise. You don't sit on your ass for years at a time and expect to comeback and fight an animal like Rory or Edgar who has been training non stop to be a champion. When the people around you believe the hype...soon you do as well. BJ's talk of "starting my run to be the best ever"...every time that he said something like that, he got outclassed. BJ's later career is a tale of delusion.

This is all coming from someone that bought every BJ Penn walk out shirt and got goosebumps during every Penn walk out because it was so exciting to watch killer BJ Penn fight.

Sadly, Killer BJ Penn died at the same time that he sent the Marinovich bros. packing because he hated the structure and no nonsense business of the program.
