Wow if this is true that would be pretty cool. He said around the time of the GSP fight he would like to take the WW title, then go for the LW title and get it, and possibly move up to MW and try for that as well. MW would be insane, but I think he matches up pretty well with Silva and pretty much anyone else in that division. He has fought bigger guys before and he has been close to MW without getting gassed. When he fought a LHW, Lyoto Machida, he looked to be around 180 or so, I couldn't tell it was in Japanese but from looking at him he looked really bulky and he put up a great fight and lost a fairly close decision. I think he could and would beat Anderson if he moved up and that's not bias I honestly believe it after seeing him fight Lyoto. He is not really known for having bad cardio, he only had bad cardio in one or 2 fights in his career, shit happens sometimes. He didn't have bad cardio in the Lyoto fight and I really think he was around 180 or so for that fight. He could beat Hughes in a rematch, he could beat GSP if he wanted, he could beat Sherk, he could beat Silva and Lutter and Swick, maybe not Franklin though. How crazy would it be to see him hold 3 belts at the same time? Remember, he's only 26.....

I'm kinda disappointed he's walking away from the 170 lbs division, maybe he's more a 155 pounder naturally but it's sorta like admitting defeat when there is unfinished business there. I'd like to see him go in there, and take it to Hughes like he did in the first fight and part of the second

Actually, mathematically speaking

BJ Penn + 155 lbs = BJ Penn @ 310 lbs

I didn't hear that, i heard him say BJ FOUGHT Din at 155.

Then again i wasnt payn to much attention to the show because well...the fights were boring as hell and weren't very good.

But i think BJ vs Sherk would be BJ doing very well in the first 2 rounds then BJ getting tired (his cardio is terrible PLUS he would have to cut more weight which would be harder on his body). After that it would be total domination by sherk because of his amazing and outstanding cardio.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

Spencer Fisher vs Joe Louzan
Jens Pulver vs BJ Penn
Yves Edwards vs Melvin Guillard


UFC Should Pick up Joheen Hansen since he is not with any other organization... would add another BIG threat in the LW division

Good pics for matches Organik. Fisher and Lauzon I can't pick on that because we didn't get to see much before it was stopped quickly when he fought Pulver. I see Penn beating Pulver and Guillard beating Edwards.
