    What is the point of this fight ? On one end you have a young prospect, and although I'm not really seeing the hype with Yair he does have potential. And on the other an old legend of the sport coming out of retirement who hasn't won a fight in years.

    I'd understand if BJ had been active this whole time and they were just using him to have a name on Yair's record, but as a return fight it just doesn't make sense.

    I think Barao or Maynard would have made much more sense for BJ. Yair should be facing someone top 10.

    They wanted to give Penn an easy win.

    Considering the amount of misc cards and fights they've been throwing together, this should come as no surprise.

    Then they picked the wrong opponent. Yair will smoke him.

    Perfect opponent for him. Yair will throw his goofy kicks that don't land and get boxed up.

    Passing the torch showcase match for Yair to mess up BJ via crazy kicks and stuff.
