So who do you think can beat him cause I have no clue. h it has to be in UFC. =]
Boy, it sure sucks watching an incredibly skilled, athletically gifted and mentally focussed fighter like BJ Penn beat the best the UFC can throw at him, doesn't it?

I sure would've hated to watch Mohammed Ali in his prime, that would have been tiresome. And I turn off the hockey highlights whenever I have to watch that boring old Alex Ovechkin score ANOTHER goal. Ditto Wayne Rooney goals in soccer. Yawn.

I predict BJ Penn will not lose a fight at LW in 2010. I will re-evaluate next December - maybe some contender will have distinguished himself by then.

I know you were kidding but BJ would beat Kimbo even if they bought fought at their natural weight.

The thing that made those guys you listed was their great rivalries. Ali wouldn't be who he is if it wasn't for Joe Fraiser. Ovechkin is really good, but last time I checked he hasn't even won a stanley cup yet and he has a very good rival in Danny Malkin. I don't watch Soccer so I don't know anything about Wayne Rooney.

so we're nit picking the people he chose to make a point? seriuosly?

so if we used Wayne Gretzky and Micheal Jordan in the 80's you would get the point that is trying to be made or would you have other excuses for their performances and miss the point?


Carley Simon, thanks for writing that song about me!

I think Edgar has the best chance in the UFC, but that still isnt a good chance. Im kinda reaching here, but Bj had trouble dealing with Jens Pulver's striking the first time they fought and Edgar is a similar lightweight to Pulver in that he is pretty small for the weight class but he is really quick and has pretty good hands. I think Edgars best chance would be to try and outpoint Bj on the feet for five rounds, but that is a hell of a lot harder to do then it was back in 2002. Once again, I think Edgar has the best chance, but that is still like a two percent chance.

Nobody in the UFC.

The only fighter I can think of who could possibly beat BJ Penn is Nick Diaz, but he is fighting at 170 over in SF right now. If he cut down to 155 again that would be a sick match up. The UFC should really try to make that happen. Dude boxed up Gomi and submitted him with a Gogo! WTF!

Penn vs. Diaz would be beautiful! Diaz really improved since he got to EliteXC, Dream and Strikeforce, he could give BJ some trouble I guess... but he fights at SF now, so the only thing BJ can do is leave the UFC lol or he moves up again to WW where he belongs

A rematch where Florian strikes will just end a few rounds earlier than their first fight. Florian's striking is very overrated and against a guy like Penn, he'll get dropped very fast.

As long as BJ continues to train the way he has been and stays healthy, I would have to say nobody.
