I actually thought both Florian and Diego would outwork Penn specially after that asskicking Penn got by GSP, but it turns out that asskicking only motivated him to train harder and he doesn't really have a huge hole in his game now like he used to.
Anyway, if it'll be one of the current ufc LWs my money right now is on Tyson Griffin in couple years or so. He is like younger, hungrier and more explosive version of Sherk with constantly improving game. If Penn is still around with the belt when Tyson is ready for his title shot Im sure Penn will get a run for his moneys.
Personally I see Penn winning a title defense or 2 at LW next, then he fights a top WW like Alves or Fitch at WW and gets beaten again. However topic was about LW division so that doesn't count.
