Well I think the point of the thread was if BJ takes KenFlo lightly he will be in trouble. If game BJ and game Kenflo show up then yeah, its Penn all day.

Kenflo/Penn will be a title fight for the ages and it will get the respect it deserves because Kenflo has put in the victories since his title defeat and he has stayed as hungry as ever and wow I respect Kenflo as a person and a fighter.

As a fan you don't have to worry about this guy retiring early, showing up out of shape, etc etc.

Fantastic fighter that cares about entertaining fans and I appreciate that in a day where you got guys threatening to quit or just generally disappearing from the scene.

A groan of tedium escapes me...

This fight wont happen for ages so i dont understand why they wouldnt put him up against Sherk first, otherwise he will be inactive for atleast 7-8 months which is stupid and theres no point putting him up against a no name coz in the ufc anyone can win. I think Sherk v Florian winner gets a shot, but imo Sherk will win it. But even if the ufc lets him keep his shot they should still put him v sherk, no 2 (sherk) v no 3(florian) in the lw division so atleast florian is active and not waiting around

Stevenson has a guillotine but his wrestling isn't anything special and what I meant is a fighter like Sherk who has great submission defense and will hold Kenny on his back.

And No I don't want to see a Kenny vs Diego rematch because I think it would be the same thing.
You have no idea what you're talking about. Stevenson is an EXCELLENT grappler. Anyone who actually trains on the ground will tell you that




What a stud

On a side note did anyone notice how high BJ looked. Usually when the camera is on him he is pumped and does some shadow boxing. Last night he kinda just had a blank look with a grin on his face....his eyes were pretty red too.

And when Kenny called him out after the fight, BJ didn't really have much of a reaction lol. Just thought it was pretty funny.

Favorite Fighters:
1. BJ Penn
2. Gabriel Gonzaga
3. Lyoto Machida
4. Goran Reljic
5. Jason Miller

KenFlo is an awesome fighter and is kind of like BJ as in he is good well rounded fighter, but BJ is just a little bit better than him at everything.

So yeah he shouldnt take him lightly for sure, but i cant see BJ having much of a problem with him.

Still an awesome i fight i wanna see tho.

I disagree but honestly even if you think he is that wasn't my point at all.

The point is Stevenson isn't a top notch wrestler like Sherk, Griffin, or Edgar. So I'm still not convinced Kenny won't get takendown and controlled for 3 rounds if he faces one of them.
