I assume this thread is a joke... My answer is neither. Though Penn would be top 3.

I maybe partial but I say Gomi. Here are the reasons:
-PRIDE World Lightweight Champion (1 Time, Only)
-PRIDE 2005 Lightweight Grand Prix Champion
-Holds fastest knockout in Pride, at 6 seconds
-Contender for Sengoku Lightweight Championship
-2005 Sherdog Fighter of the Year
-Shooto Welterweight Championship (2 Times)
-UFC Knockout Of The Night (1 Time)
Then again that's just my opinion compared to BJ:
-UFC Lightweight Championship (One time)
-UFC Welterweight Championship (One time)
-Submission of the Night (Two times)
-Knockout of the Night (One time)
-Second fighter to win Championships in two weight classes
-Most successful Lightweight title defenses (three)
-Most Lightweight wins in UFC history (10)
-Sherdog 2008 Beatdown of the Year vs Joe Stevenson

I think you did a good job explaining why BJ is the best rather then Gomi.

All the reasons you listed in your previous post, along with the fact that he has the best skills in the division and would be the favorite going to any LW fight, even by today's standards.
