This is one of those fights where i can see either fighter finishing the other. Slightly favouring GSP as he is fighting at his proper weightclass and Penn is a far better LW than he is a WW.

Penn is moving up to challenge for the title, the LW title has nothing to do with it!? If GSP came down to 155 (pretty much impossible!) then he wouldnt give up the WW title

Good to see they seem to have stopped calling their PPV's with shitty names, and sticking to saying what is the main event.

Can't say I am really a GSP or Penn fan all that much. Of course I have a ton of respect for both and think they should both be included on everyone's pound for pound list. I have to say though, I see Penn winning this. No, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if GSP wins, or I guess even if GSP winds up dominating him. But, I just see the dedicated, focused Penn is just not going to lose to anyone, not even GSP. Lilke everyone else has said though, no matter who wins, I don't see an early stoppage by either of them, and it should make for a war.

Quick question; does anyone know for sure if GSP's title is definitely on the line, I thought it was. If its not on the line that sucks, because it will be a 3 round fight than. I think this fight deserves to be a 5 round war!

I am the biggest BJ Penn fan in the world, but i just think GSP is too strong for him. I think there skill levels are on par with each other but in different areas if that makes sense, But BJ's frame is too small for WW. I still think he would beat almost everyone at WW apart from GSP.

With that logic, champions should never fight.. because they have nothing to gain.

GSP will gain more from beating BJ Penn, then he would from gain from betting anyone else in the WW division.

all i see is that GSP has WAY more to lose in this fight than Penn. Penn loses, he can go back down to LW and still be champ..

GSP loses, he not only is not the champ anymore, but he loses hes title to Penn who realistically doesnt really deserve a title shot in the first place, AND we also lose the chance of watching the superfight between GSP and Silva..

GSP's title shouldnt be on the line, but a 5 round fight is definitely needed..

I understand what you're saying but in title fights, champs will always have more to loose than challengers. This could almost be a universal law

This being said, if GSP wins, he'll get to beat one of the best, most respected P4P fighters and get to close the mouth of the people that are still questioning his split decision win over BJ for good.

I'm pretty sure if GSP could make 155, he'd get a LW title shot pretty fast too but can he?

To put both belts on the line (on the same night?), they'd have to fight at around 162 or something. The idea sounds very odd to me. Have we ever seen that before? And is it possible (sanctioned by the Commission) to fight for a title (2 titles) at a catchweight fight? Because let's assume GSP wins the LW belt at 162, he'll have to make 155 to defend his title against future LW contenders... Just doesn't make sense to me.

Title fight makes sense because GSP is the champ and he needs to defend his title, thing that he didn't get to do that much if you think about it.
Plus, #1 and #2 contenders in the division are Penn and Alves (not in order) and right now beside these 2, noone else in the division could "claim" for a shot.
Kos will probably be considered a top contender if he wins his next fight. Alves didn't earn his shot before UFC 90 (failed to make weight against Hughes..). So it only leaves us with BJ to fight GSP next.

Last thing about the title match. Don't forget the UFC is a business and PPV predictions mostly if not only drive main events and title shots. GSP/Penn for title sells more than GSP/Penn for "nothing".
