We Have a new Champion ..now what?

ok im already tired of the andy talk ..I feel like dana right now going dang man there was other fights on the card too


ok Frankie just won the belt from someone that allot of us saw as one of if not thee best p4p fighter, much respect to him weather bj was 100% or not frankie deserves respect


now on to my questions

besides maynard which will be frankies next fight who do you think should get next up? do you thin kit should be bj or another fighter?

do you think bj's next fight should be for the title again if frankie wins against maynard or do you think bj should have to fight someone else.

if you want to have penn fight someone else first who do you think it should be?

with all the talk of penn wanting to retire the past year or so do you think this was just him passing the torch to someone he felt worthy so that he can leave?

I think BJ should just go to WW. Edgar should avenge his loss to Maynard then fight KenFlo.

florian should fight edgar for the title and penn should fight maynard for a number 1 contender fight.

edit: thats if bj stays at lw. if he moves to ww i'd like to see him fight a big time striker like alves or daley.

I disagree with the part about passing the torch, seems too Hollywood to me. But yeah, things are just really confusing right now for me because I didn't expect yesterday to go at all like it did.

Its hard for me not to ask to see an immediate rematch with BJ as I believe he almost certainly is the superior fighter, he just didn't show it last night for whatever reason. But Frankie is the champ now and that shouldn't have any impact on the status of other top contenders so yeah I think Maynard - Edgar makes sense. Then either give BJ one more fight or an immediate title shot.

I think BJ should at least fight another contender before he gets another shot. It was a close fight, but not close enough for an immediate rematch like Shogung/Machida. I think he should fight whoever is next in line after Maynard to determine the next contender. But who is that? Kenny again? I don't think he deserves another title shot yet, so who else? How about Sotiropoulos? Pellegrino? Jim Miller? I really don't know...

Maybe BJ will cut the losses and move up to WW permanently. If so I'd like to see Sotiropoulos/Kenny with the winner facing the loser of Edgar/Maynard.

Word, fantastic performance on Frankie's part!

I think BJ should fight two fights and if he wins both then get his shot back at whoever is holding the belt. I think he needs to fight Tyson Griffin and then Kenny again in a non-title bout. As for his next challenger, I see quite a few options. Miller is on a 4 fight win streak, you could easily make a case for George Sotiropoulos with his tooling of Joe Daddy, the of course there's Kenny and Gray and a BJ rematch if/when BJ wins a couple more. I don't think BJ should get an instant rematch though, I think it mixes up the division nicely and there are a lot more fights available now.

Nope, like I said, two mroe fights as it makes things interesting and will do nothing but motivate BJ.

Kenny, Tyson Griffin, Jim Miller, Paul Kelly (use him as a tune-up but he's a solid fighter) or Tibau.

No I honestly don't. I think the retirement talk was because GSP beat him so hard. I think this will do nothing but motivate him. He got beat but he didn't get destroyed.

Why does everyone, including Dana, talk about BJ moving up but GSP just lays on the WW division, what am I missing?

yeah that is what I am confused about.

Dana already said that maynard gets next shot and frankie, so who is bj's next fight in that division that he has not already dismantled in devastating fashion and has deserving right to fight penn for next up against champion.

I think it would be Kenny but Kenny is a smart man and fighter and i think he knows he needs more time o grow before he can beat penn, dont get me wrong i think he would still take teh fight but I think would be at even a more disadvantage because i think he knows he does not have the skills to beat penn at this time in his career


does anyone find it really weird like me that i see more guys being able to beat the champion of the division then beat the guy that is at the # 2 contender spot now (Penn)

bj deserves the immediate title match. like you said he's top 3-4 of the p4p discussion and he's cleared out the lw division and he is clearly the number 1 lw contender.
