If BJ loses to GSP

First off- this is not a thread about who you think will this fight. Yes- it's a hypothetical question which I normally don't do but I'm curious.

Should BJ lose this fight will he still be motivated to reign over the LW division? Will he be as motivated to face KenFlo and the other contenders at LW as he is against GSP?

I don't really like BJ but I do admire that he wants to challenge himself(though I completely disagree with the hold up to the entire LW division) by taking on GSP and challenging himself.

But the question is- if he loses will he be truly motivated to "cement his legacy" as Dana has called it at the LW level? Should he lose will he be content to drop back down and go through the division before possibly moving on to other challenges? Or possibly with a loss will he lose motivation again?

I'm just curious to hear other thoughts on this.

I mentioned it before, but I think if BJ doesn't win against GSP, there is a good chance that his mental game and his dedication will go out the window. I hope it doesn't happen though because he truly is the best LW in the UFC right now....when he's 100%.

I want to see Penn at 155....I want to see him prove his greatness against the UFC's LW elite...whether it be florian, tyson or a second time against sherk, he can defend his belt 4 more x and then think about challenging someone above his weight class....

will he be motivated...definitely not as much...and guys like Florian are hungry, motivated lions.....

ColdWeather has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Knowing BJ..

keeps the weight, goes up to 185 and tries for Silva's belt

BJ will have one of his patented breakdowns and then eventually blame the loss on poor physical condition and rededicate himself next year claiming to once again be the greatest fighter in history.

If he loses again I think he would actually be very focused. Losing the P4P crown IMO would make him focus on cementing himself as the best LW because say what you want about his attitude but BJ wants to be the very best.

Now if he wins I think his focus at LW will be non existant and I think he would lose focus at WW if he beats GSP after one title defense and turn his attention to Anderson although that would never happen.

If he loses I think he'll be more focused to prove he's a great fighter and at LW he's the best. And I think KenFlo's doing a good job of motivating BJ to fight him. If Kenny can keep talking about BJ, BJ will notice. Whether it's a good idea to motivate BJ is another question.

If he loses his good friend Dana White would give him another title shot, this time at MW after he beats a low level fighter.
