Is Penn's greatness at LW inflated?

Okay sure he beat gomi and thomas in their primes but were these guys ever elite?

Now lets flashforward to his 2nd stint at LW which just looks like clean up duty of hasbeens and UFs..He first beats pulver who cant even hang with 145ers in WEC..Then he beats UF journeyman stevenson.. After that its the undersized and ill-equipped sherk, then he beats another TUFer in florian..After that its diego..
With (an undersized LW in) edgar and another TUFer in maynard as future opponents...

My question is BJ penn overated at LW???

Being a part of TUF doesn't make you any less of a fighter my friend. It's clear given their performances that Kenny and Diego, despite their modest beginnings, are exceptional fighters in their own right... clear cut contenders, and yet both have been completely outclassed by BJ. Over-rated? I struggle to call myself a Penn fan, but even I couldn't logically label him as such.

The LW's outside the UFC are underated (outside maybe Eddie Alvarez). BJ is far and above the best LW in the world, the guy is a former WW, saying he is overated is nothing if not a weak pathetic arguement.

"Penn" and "overrated" shouldn't even be in the same sentence.

In short, no, not really.

These guys are among the best LWs in the world, now im not saying there arent guys out there who would give Bj a good fight.

and also LOL at joe saying they need to steal Aoki from japan!

Yes it should as in this one, "Who ever fights BJ next will undoubtedly be overated going into the fight."

Keep in mind that Bj completely owned the guy that was considered the best lightweight from overseas for a very long time. Bj ate Gomi for lunch, it was a one sided fight from start to finish. Bj did this while Gomi was at the top of his game. He also stopped Duane Ludwig and Caol Uno while they were both in there primes. Bj is far from overrated.

No way in hell is BJ overrated. He's proved himself time and time again, and he's still getting better. At 155 he is unstoppable.

BJ faces some tough opponents but makes it look easy.
