Who is next for BJ? Frankie Edgar or Gray Maynard?
According to Mir and what he said in the post fight press conference, he thinks Edgar would be a really good opponent for BJ....do you agree?
Edgar has looked awesome lately, his striking has really come a long way, he's a great wrestler with excellent cardio and fights at a ferocious pace.
Would this be enough to beat BJ? I honestly doubt it. If you put Frankie in there with Penn, BJ would flat out embarrass him. As good a wrestler as Edgar is he would be a lot smaller than BJ and he would likely not be powerful enough to get a takedown. If a big strong guy like Diego couldn't take Penn down once I really don't see Edgar doing it. Penn would brush off the takedowns and outstrike Frankie on the feet and basically do whatever he wants.
In order to beat Penn you gotta be able to take him down.
This is why I truly believe that Gray Maynard would pose as more of a threat to Penn than Edgar. He is a big, strong guy with superior wrestling, heavy hands and a great gas tank. Using GSP's blueprint from his 2nd fight with Penn, Maynard would have a big chance at taking this one in my honest opinion.
If Maynard gets past Nate Diaz, the UFC has to set this fight up!
