Well, BJ Penn lost tonight! Even though he had lost he put up a very good effort! He nearly submitted the man! That just goes to show that Tim Sylvia, who is a highly overrated fighter in my opinion, was wrong when he said that BJ's first victory was a fluke! BJ had the skills, the problem is he just gassed. Well, Do you think there will be a third fight in the next couple of years between Hughes and Penn? Or do you think Penn will go back down to the lightweight division? Or do you think he is finished in the UFC? Your Thoughts!

I personally think he shoudl drop back down. I think he would be awesome as a lightweight in the UFC. They need to start him lower in the division though, not as number 1 or 2 contender:dunno:

I think he will probably go to Japan and fight for a while in K-1, work his way back up again. Then come over here again and maybe fight St. Pierre in a rematch once St. Pierre takes the gold away from Hughes. I can picture Penn maybe fighting Karo Parisyan, but I don't see him jobbing to Diego Sanchez.

I think there will definatly be a rematch sometime as long as BJ sticks around. then again maybe not cuz I can see Dana wanting to protect Hughes now that he redemed his loss. So itll probobly be up to Matt.

When it's 1/1 there should always be a third fight I think. :D


I definitely agree with you, Toni. I'd love to see a rematch and I say BJ Penn would win this time.

he should get himself into a camp that'll push him hard to fulfill the potential that he has within him, or switch up the trainers he has in his camp - something to help him with his conditioning....hes the most talented fighter in the game, but if he cant pace himself for a 5 round fight, whats the use....

i like the idea of him going up against Karo and/or Diego, and then if he passes those tests, getting another shot at the title, whether its GSP or Matt...

I agree but I think he needs to win more than just one of those.......Maybe have to fight Karo/Diego, then fight the loser of Hughes/GSP, then on to title again

Bj needs to get off the high horse and CONDITION!! Hes a better fighter PERIOD! To anyone who trains. Its sad to me that the better man lost because he's lazy...maybe he's not the better man. All i know is GsP is gonna mop the ****IN floor with Matt's bloody mushy limp body!

A conditioned BJ would probobly beat Matt and GSP fairly easily IMO. But thats just the way it is. hes not conditioned and he may never be. Im sure he doesnt work that hard but some guys no matter how hard they work just cant get to the point where they have great cardio

wow u have no idea how impressed I am with BJ..what i fight, if he isnt the most naturally gifted fighter in the world , i dunno who is..wow those first two round he looked unbeatable..i hope next time he takes Tito up on his offer and goes up to big bear and gets his cardio improved..but bj is still only 27 this kid is far from done, he will wear that welterweight belt again i guarantee it.. I CANT SAY ENOUGH HOW MUCH THAT GUY IMPRESSED ME TONITE...MY JAW IS STILL ON THE FLOOR FROM THAT BEAUTIFUL DISPLAY OF BJJ

If he can take on Hughes like that, Sherk or Florian (Positive it will be Sherk) will have their hands full!

Bj impressed the hell out of us today....well for 2 rounds he dominated. He gassed so bad, but he will be back and we will win a belt again some day soon. He needs to train with Tito's gang - This is a must do once you loose a coupla fights - hes gotta change a few things up.

He is IMO a much better technical fighter than all others at 170 but he is not fullfilling his potential.

He will be back....remember this is all BJ does.

That might be nice, but let's be serious....Hughes is not getting past St. Pierre.
It would be nice to see an "in shape" Penn though.

What a disgrace!!!!

Matt was right to call BJ out of shape. I love it when these guys CLAIM how bad they want it and what they are made of, then get into the Octagon and completely gas. All of you who are so "impressed" with BJ need to rethink your opinion. Isn't the same as saying Tank Abbott would have been unstoppable if he just trained a little bit. BJ should become a banker or something less physical so he doesn't get hurt.
