He'd probably kick the sh*t out of father time too.

If Rob isn't on there, I'd say maybe Florian or Maynard. I won't waste time saying how maybe Florian could use kicks or Maynard wrestling, because in reality I don't think either would make it.

Toss up for me between Ken Flo and Tyson, heh. Tough call. Even then I find it hard to doubt BJ.

Honestly the person with the best chance of beating BJ is BJ. If he doesn't get up for a fight, he said it himself in the post fight press conference, that he would have a hard time to get up for a fight against the winner of Huerta and Florian. So if that is indeed the case then BJ would essentially be beating himself by not dedicating himself to his training and being motivated to fight. If he comes in unmotivated against the winner of that fight then it could be a long night for BJ. But if BJ comes in prepared, IMO, there is nobody in the LW division who can touch him right now.

I said Frank Edgar. To be honest, I have no idea why.

Damn, I used my 1000th post on something I wasn't even half thinking about.

My historic 1000th post...

I did the same thing yesterday. Now I gotta wait for my 2000th to make it worthwhile.

I don't think that any of these guys can beat BJ right now but I voted for Huerta. Go ahead and flame if you want but I'd like to see him improve to the point where he is a champ. He's a high risk, high reward kind of fighter which makes for an exciting fight. Unfortunately that means that he puts himself in some sticky situations and I'm sure BJ would make quick work out of him.

You just need better stand-up and awesome TTD and you can beat BJ. Unfortunately, no one comes to mind.

There is only one way to dethrone BJ Penn right now in his current status.

No, I won't say Takanori Gomi because he's in WVR.
No, I won't say Shinya Aoki because he's in DREAMS.

I'm talking about a last resort.

Yes, I'm talking about the great Genki Sudo himself.

Florian has the best chance. But I don't see it happening :P

For me it's between Huerta and Griffin.

Hueta is a tough SOB, who's very talented as is Tyson Griffin.

I would love to see those two fights.
