    These guys are effectively at the same point in their respective careers and even though they are officially retired, both have expressed a strong desire to compete and end their career on a high note. Penn has stated that he has entertained the idea of a move to 145 after his loss to Nick Diaz and Kenny obviously fought well and earned a title shot at that weight. Barring what the outcome of the contest is, either man could potentially begin a career resurgence after a win. IMO it would be a shame to see either guy retire from the sport completely. They both have talent to offer even at their age.

    i'd watch it... however, bj penn turned in a shambolic performance last time around, the guy has had his time and now it's over, i don't see any benefit to him coming back

    Kenny doesn't want to mess up that hair and BJ hasn't left the buffet since Edgar put him there

    I'd rather see Penn rematch Gomi or Sanchez just for fun.

    While I always hoped to see Crocop LHK KO guys again and Vitor KTFO guys again (and he did it), I have a very hard time imagining BJ having even an average performance (nevermind dominant performance) after his 3rd Frankie Edgar bout.

    As a huge fan, I have no interest in seeing BJ enter the octagon again.

    No....

    After the tippy toe gameplan, Im done with watching BJ fight. Not to mention, theres no yearning from fans to see Florian back in the cage.
