    BJ was always a fighter who lived off his immense talent, he was never a hard worker.

    He relied a lot on his talent and reflexes.

    One of the first attributes to go when a fighter ages is the reflexes, look at Roy JOnes Jnr. Went from unbeatable to getting KOed left right and centre almost overnight

    BJ just isn't the type of fighter who will age well in the Octagon

    Good, if that's the case Yair will have a solid, durable dummy to show off his flashy TKD skills.

    He also has a legendary chin, these 145ers will have a tough time stopping him. If BJ does lose it'll be most likely by decision imo..

    I'm a big Penn fan but agree that most fighters, particularly the lighter guys rely on speed and reflexes. Penn is 38 years old - his reflexes are not what they were when he was 30. He very well might take a beating.

    Penn already got stopped by TKO in his only FW fight yet.

    Those legendry chins tend to fade away when you hit 38... Henderson, Fedor, Chuck... seen it happen so many times, and his chin looked shaky vs Edgar, of all people, in his last fight.

    I think actually BJ's best chance is to keep on regressing in terms of combat style from 19th century boxer to....

    This will be the equivalent of a street fight between a trained fighter and random nobody. Its not gonna look competitive, and i really wish they would stop giving him chances.

    He doesn't take it serious enough, he just takes fights to inflate his ego and hope to relive past glory days.

    Awful is always better than atrocious. BJ has looked atrocious for the last 7 years....

    Penn also hits like a truck so he has a chance to win a few more
