I don't think it should be for a title shot. I'm a big BJ fan and all, but I don't like the idea of him having to defend both titles, it would hold up the divisions too long.

Dana said something to the effect of "we'll see what happens with the LW division after his matchup with GSP"
Putting aside the fact that White routinely steps back from definitive statements, when did he say this?

before the GSP fitch fight on the subject of whether or not BJ would be able to move up for a title shot.

BJ said he wanted the winner. He was trying to move up to fight Fitch if he won.

Not to mention Penn doesn't deserve a welterweight title shot to be able to defend both titles.

You're just a cook...

I still don't see any certainty. Again, until White proves me wrong by making the title match, I'll assume he's intelligent enough not to.

I see GSP winning anyway, but in the event that he loses this really screws up 2 entire divisions. Maybe Dana should play it smart and not make this a title match...
