    Yes....and no.

    He fought Machida and weighed in at 191, Machida 220ish. So it was considered an heavyweight / open weight fight.

    He fought a guy over 205, so that's good enough.

    I always found curious that Machida gained weight for that fight, dude was scared of Fat BJ.

    They were both super pudgy in that fight. Kind of hilarious to watch.

    Or, he didn't see BJ as a threat so he didn't train much

    This might even be more likely, but Scurred Machida is funnier.

    Are we speaking in riddles and poems? There exists did ever a Penn which weighed 191 against that of Machida.

    Is he visiting the Diaz brothers in Stockton in that pic or something? Because BJ was born rich and that sure ain't his house!

    Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at his best was kinda like a HW version of BJ Penn.
    Good boxing with great BJJ. Both with great chins. Although Penn never really showed great BJJ off his back in MMA.

    When bj fought machida he did very well and though machida won decision I really thought bj did more considering the size difference

    I don't see how getting fat would help him. Wouldn't you want to be in the best shape possible to fight a guy if you're scared?
