    For me it's obviously B.J. Penn. We are talking about the most dominant lightweight champion of all time.

    He beat Gomi, destroyed Sherk, choked out Kenflo, dominated Diego (who was legit AF at the time), and ran through Joe Daddy like nothing.

    tough to pick anyone over BJ. You got some legit competition in this poll though. Still, it's BJ. I'm not even a fan I just appreciate, namsayin?

    BJ of course. Unfortunately he never trained like he did for Diego for every fight

    Feel like it could have been BJ if he stayed focused and didn't distract himself with trying to fight at WW.

    Other than him, I think LW is too stacked and skilled for their to be a long reigning champ. Just when a guy reaches new pinnacle, the next guy in line comes along and dominates and destroys him.

    The BJ that showed against Diego vs Conor at his best would have been a good matchup

    BJ Penn for sure watching him fight and not being a fight finder noob will make you appreciate who BJ really was inside that cage A WARRIOR!

    Nothing worse than the Bj vs GSP rematch. Everyone in my household was going for GSP except me and as you could imagine it was a bad night. Almost as bad as Anderson kicking Vitors head off.
