Suck? Have some respect for those that do something you would never dare too. By the way, "themself" is not a word.

BJ/Frankie would be more entertaining so I would rather see that one first.

Correcting words in an attempt to win an argument? Well aren't you tough. By the way, I think you meant "to." not "too."

Edgar would last longer nad be much more comptetitve. Maynards's striking is light years behind BJ's and if he took BJ down, he would get turned into a pretzel.

Edgar has real fast hands and would make for a fun fight. But would lose badly.

Griffin has more power than Edgar and is stronger, but would still lose.

But its all irrelevant. NOONE AT 155 will beat BJ. Sum people say Kos can make 155, I disagree. But lets see him try. That would be fun.

Lets sort of settle this right now, cuz its old and i think alot of people dont get it....

Let me break it down for you, Maynard, Edgar, whoever, bring Fitch down from 170 or let him stay at 170 and bring KOS and watch them get beat too...

People need to realize a couple things about Dana White he is a promoter 1st not a businessman, but he does know fighters, BJ, FINALLY is dialed in so go get Faber Brown and Aldo and watch him systematically smash each of them, I think the Daughter in his life is something that adds to his motivation now and TBF....he's not to be phucked with at 155......some 170lb guys could fight him and stay at 170 and still he would beat them....

Enjoy it, you may never see a guy as good at his weight again....

Yep, we're witnessing the greatest lightweight of all time.

As far as matchups..

1. Maynard
2. Edgar

and then I think its off to welterweight for Mr Penn.

Florian, Stevenson, Griffin, Sanchez and co. will be fighting it out for a while me thinks.
Someone is going to have to go on a seriously impressive streak before being considered worthy.

There is Aoki and Alvarez is consider, but until they're a part of the UFC roster the point is moot.

If Maynard beats Diaz - then its Maynard first up.
If Maynard loses then its Frankie Edgar.

Likely its going to be
2) Edgar.

After that its speculation - u dont know who will be on a roll or winning well.
But i think Tyson Griffin will be likely round and possibly challenging.

I think if BJ beats thise guys he will move to welterweight.
If the WEC was in the UFC we could have Jose Aldo and Urijah Faber step up and fight him.
Still lots of options for BJ Penn.

There isn't a single lightweight fighter in the world that matches up well against BJ right now. Maynard is bigger and that'd be all he brings into a fight with BJ. Gray has only a slight chance of taking BJ down and 0 chance of doing any damage if he does get him down. Edgar is too small for BJ and doesn't have the skills to be much of a challenge for him. There isn't a single lightweight in the UFC, hell, not many in the world, that match up well against BJ. BJ will retire with the belt.

The second best LW in the world is my boy Superflo and we all kno what happened to him. BJ is unstoppable at 155 just like GSP at 170 and Anderson at 185... People talk about Thompson and Aoki but they would get killed too. Thompson isn gonna take BJ down and Aoki is nowhere near the striker Penn is and if they hit the ground BJ is still ahead of him.

HW-Brock Lesnar
LHW-Forrest Griffin, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans & Gegard Mousasi
MW-Chael Sonnen
WW-All hail GSP
LW-Frankie Edgar
FW-Kenny Florian & Mark Hominick
BW-Don't really have one but I love their fights
