bj has beaten some of the best LW out there already, i dont see any of the talent being able to beat him. Let see who he beaten...Gomi, Sherk, Stevenson...i think florian has a shot...but not likely to beat BJ

If I was UFC, I'd discourage BJ from moving up. It's not like he'll have cleaned out the division. Hell, it's arguable whether he deserved the fight against Stevenson.

GSP shouldn't have to fight BJ again just because BJ feels like it. He still hasn't beaten a welterweight since returning, after all.

Have you ever seen a Rob Emerson leg kick? Brutal. BJ wouldn't make it out of the second round.

Please tell me you're kidding. Rob is really good. He has awesome kicks and just destroys people. The only reason he's ever lost is because he feels bad for his opponents so he lets them win so they don't quit the sport completly when he dominates them.

i think the recipe for beating BJ is to defend his takedowns and outstrike him...cuz you ain't gonna beat him off your back and he's almost impossible to takedown...and I saw him icing his legs and in pain from the leg kicks he ate from Sherk.....so maybe someone who can use those?

aka. no one in the division

mjbish23 you are a funny guy!

Aaronyman I do agree with your recipe and do think BJ is willing to stand with anyone so it can be done. I don't agree with the no one in the division comment. I think Tyson's got great leg kicks and hands. Florian's stand up looks great as well. Tyson may have better TD defence. Both of those guys have a legit shot at BJ.

Rob really does have great leg kicks tho and I think whoever beats BJ is going to need to really work the leg kicks so Rob could do it.
