to answer the OP;

is Penn even officially retired? Liddell held on for way too long, but at least I know he's not coming back. BJ will be back for another payday in 2013, I can almost guarantee it. He's only 33, what's he going to do with his time if he's not fighting? Run a gym? His purse was 150k for the ass kicking he took against Diaz (not to mention sponsorships, etc) -- he's still making more money than A LOT of fighters.

If he actually made an effort to cut down to 155 he might actually have a chance at winning. Taking these fights against larger WW opponents is just asking for trouble, but it's an easy payday, as long as hes ready for a beating.
