Even if we pretend Penn does deserve the shot (which he doesn't), he doesn't fight regularly enough to justify such fight.
Silva and GSP fight twice as much as Penn does, and if either of them feel like doing fights outside their weight divisions when there is no-one lined up for title shots I don't mind it. If these "side project fights" end up getting them deserved title shots then fine let them have them.
Penn is a cocky douchebag dreamer who has defended his title for one freakin time and already thinks its time to start disrespecting the rest of the LW guys by stalling the next title shot. Sure if he would fight as regularly as rest of the champs I could ignore the fact that he doesn't deserve it, but like this it looks like Florian has to wait for his shot like a year and I find it total bs. Now imagine Penn actually winning this fight (which he wont) and we'll have both titles being defended once a year max, if even that.
Penn's world will shatter hard when GSP beats him up and Floarian steals his LW title right after. After that I don't care which weight division he fights on and how regularly.
There, someone had to say it. Lots of neg rep from Penn nuthuggers incoming now though :P
