Welterweight questions and comments

does sherk keep it until he returns from suspension? Is he officially suspended yet? BJ have any fights announced? What about Nate Diaz, any word on his next fight? If Huerta wins his next fight I think him and BJ would be a good one. Maybe Big Daddy Stevenson vs. Huerta if they both win. I like Thiago Tavares to have a title fight in the next year or two, he's got great transition and submissions. Him and T. Griffin will be a lot of fun to watch.

my ufc ranks

1* Sherk
2 BJ
3 Huerta
4 Stevenson
5 Tavarres
6 KenFlo
7 Guillard
8* Franca
9 T Griffin
10 Nate Diaz

Sherk and Franca (I think he's out a year, so I could've left him off) get the Bonds treatment with the asterisks. It's so hard to rank, didn't even get L Garcia, D Thomas, Pellegrino, Fisher or Guida in there. I'm sure someone can do better than my rankings.

Any word on another Etim fight, he looked good in his ufc debut, I think it was the one over in England.

Shrek will be stripped of the title if he loses his appeal

And he's not suspended until his appeal is heard.

BJ is fighting at UFC 78 no opponent yet

Huerta needs to fight someone with some crenditials before he fights BJ even though I would argue that BJ needs to fight someone with crenditials in the LW divison as well (but that is another story)



Nate Diaz is fighting on Sept 19 Ultimate Fight Night Live against Junior Assuncao


If Joe Stevenson Wins chances are it'll be him vs BJ Penn for the (interm) LW Title at UFC 78

Thiago Taveras is a complete beast just needs to not be such a dick

Taveras would trash Griffen since Taveras can finish a fight and Griffen doesn't seem to know how to.

Terry Etim is fighting at UFC 75 against Gleison Tibau

And here are my personal rankings not including Franca
1. Sean Sherk
2. Joe Stevenson
3. Din Thomas
4. Spencer Fisher
5. Kenny Florian
6. Marcus Aurelio
7. Clay Guida
8. Frank Edgar
9. Thiago Taveras
10. BJ Penn
Hope that was helpful

You think Tavares knows BJJ....have you seen BJ Penn. He wasn't the first and youngest American to win the world BJJ title because he couldn't beat guys like this. This guy owned Takanori Gomi, Close decisions to Lyoto Machida (a LHW) and GSP. He would school Tavares. How many of Tavares's fights have you seen anyway? Just the one most recent UFC one? Frankie Edgar would be TKO'd by strikes from BJ. Not nearly enough experience to hang with him. Clay Guida would be submitted 2nd round via armbar, though this guy is quickly becoming a guy to keep an eye on. Ken Flo would be submitted in the 2nd round by a triangle choke after BJ took him down and gave up a sweep for position. The fact that you have BJ ranked 10th is laughable. Yes, he is my favorite fighter, but this is the guy that kneed Din Thomas in the face so hard Thomas still fears trying to take him down (i doubt he does, but he damn sure should; and I really like Din too, can't wiat to see him fight again), and that shit happened like 6 yrs ago. So having Thomas ranked 3rd and BJ ranked 10th is ridiculous. Joe Stevenson has no stand-up whatsoever, so BJ just wouldn't allow it to go to the ground and if he did he would still submit him. As for Sherk, well he is just a crappier version of Matt Hughes and we all know how BJ owns Hughes. Except for with separated ribs. Aurelio and Spencer would be tougher match-ups for him, I think he would easily finish them too.

The reason BJ is so low on my list has nothing to do with talent it's because in the last 3 years he has won one fight in the UFC LW divison and it was against a washed up FW. BJ is the most talented guy in the LW divison but he hasn't beaten anyone in the LW divison in a long time. Thomas has been winning fights in the LW divison BJ hasn't so Din is high on my list and BJ isn't BJ could probably beat anyone on the list but until he beats someone he doesn't go to the top of my list.
