Would anyone have liked it if UFC picked BJ Penn to step in?

    I'm a huge BJ Penn fan but at the same time is a realist. I wouldn't have wanted BJ filling in to get retired again, but some people wanted BJ's comeback fight to be against Conor. Anybody?

    I would have preferred Cerrone.

    BJ from 4 years ago would have beat Conor and made it look easy. Today is a different story.

    Why did Penn even come to mind? His career as a contender is over. He doesn't belong anywhere near a champion.

    If I was pretending he wasn't temp suspended then ....

    No, I wouldn't want it but I sure as hell would watch. If / when B.J. comes back I want him to start at the bottom not face top ranked guys. Call me crazy but a B.J. with the same strategy that fought Fitch would have a shot against Conor. I am not sold on Conor. He beat an out of shaped Mendes and although it was impressive that he KO'd the long time Champ Aldo. We didn't really get to see much because it ended so quickly. Those were the only top ranked fighters he has faced.
