BJ Penn Says He Is Moving To 155

http://www.kuam.com/

- On the right "Kuam News Video" player, scroll through the videos and it should say "Brent with MMA world champ BJ Penn"

His plan is to move down to 155 lbs. get the title, move up to 170 lbs. and get the title, & move up to 185 lbs. and get that title as well.

Wow. We'll see. Thoughts?

i'm the only thing i'm afraid of

A move like this or at least by him saying he gonna do this makes it seem to me like he is taking the easy way out. He can't beat the guys in his weight class so what's he do, claim he is gonna move down and win the belt which he just might but then he claims he will move up not only one but two weight classes and win bothe those belts as well. Not happening, he stands a good chance if he can drop to 155 but at 170 and 185 he will just be the same as he is now. He's a good fighter and all but at this time he is moving down the ranks not up them in his weight class with all the young guys who are turning up the heat like GSP and Sanchez etc....

Someone needs to remind BJ Penn that this isn't the WWE, right now BJ is confused. BJ, there is a difference between being confident and being a dreamer. From what was said in the interview, Cabbage was coming back to the UFC to. I guess he is going to drop and try for the 155 and 170 title to. Come on now ffs, Penn in my opinion has no chance @ 185. It really wouldn't be that exciting to watch either, I wouldn't think.

lol Sherks/Florian/Stevenson/Yves/Fischer, these guys are no push overs at 155.

After Sherk destroys Florian, Sherk Vs Penn would be good.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

Yeah, Sherk v. Penn would be good. I think Penn would take Sherk though. But, you never know, Sherks' a stud.

ya i'd take sherk in the fight, personally just because im a HUGE sherk fan, but i also think he's alot like hughes at 170 he's PERFECT for the size.

hahaha....WAR PENN, and on all you haters. He has the potential to win at all 3 weight classes. The hardest would be 185 IMO. But if he gets his gas tank back to where it was he would own Sherk, Hughes, and GSP. The only reason GSP won was cuz Baby Jay gased. Imagine what a gnub GSP would of looked like had Penn kept up the striking clinic he was putting on in the 1st. Its just a matter of what shape he comes in. He already showed he can dominate Hughes, so Sherk is just a lower form. Nothing has changed between Hughes and Penn, Penn would do it again. Its all conditioning for BJ. But at 185 Franklin would probably be too much and wouldn't let BJ take him down and just put a clinic on ala Tanner/Loiseau. Penn owns grapplers.
