That would also be assuming he is invincible and would never get injured. He has till Dec till he would possibly fight GSP.....why couldn't he fight between then? He could, and should. There is no reason he should not defend the LW title this year. Assuming he would again retain his title, he could then fight GSP. Hell, both Penn and GSP could fight again this year in their own weight class, then set up an early 09 fight against each other. Nov would be a good time....or even Dec. Florian should get a shot without having to wait till late next spring to fight.

I totally agree, IMHO he should retire the LW belt before he fights GSP in order to avoid tying it up for another year... its the respectful thing to do. Of course in such a case I think he would deserve an automatic LW title shot if he loses the WW belt (assuming he beats GSP this time around, which I actually don't think will happen)

Why don't we just wait to complain after he wins, until then it is a moot point anyway. First, it has to be announced that it is a title fight (hasn't been announced yet), then BJ needs to win it. Those are two very uncertain things that need to happen.

To all the people that say BJ doesn't deserve a title shot, do you believe that Okami does? (I personally don't think either guy does) Those are two similar scenarios, but BJ is, by far, more marketable then Okami.
