    I can't wait to see what Greg Jackson and BJ Penn can do together. I think his return in January is going to be great.

    excited? no. curious? yes. he looked horrific in his last fight and he really hasn't looked decent in 5 years. makes me curious if he has anything left.

    He's been cross training at the MMA Lab, RVCA Gym, and finishing out the last 2 weeks at JW.

    is that it? well that's good. I was worried he left for the RVCA gym to do his own thing again...

    I have little faith in BJ Penn winning a fight these days...or even making it to one.

    Interested? Yes. Excited? no.

    I think this move was about 3 to 4 years to late.

    BJ has no business fighting Yair.

    Sean Shelby + UFC seem annoyed with BJ for pulling out consistently as many times as he has.

    So NO, I'll never get "excited" about seeing BJ in the Octagon again.

    Edgar was having a field day, win or lose we better not see tip toes BJ. I want BJ to score the KO and sprint out of the octagon like old times

    I am very hopeful that Penn gives us a glimpse of his former self (as my longtime av depicts) or has really taken his training to a proper new level...but I will believe it when I see it.

    If you had a time machine to go back 5+ years, I'd be excited for it.

    I don't like like to see legends past their prime. Many times it's sad but if he wants to do it, then I'll watch. I hope he harnesses a bit of the old magic one last time.
