    I think thats the perfect plan for BJ. Florian and Huerta are both vewry talented fighters but they are no where near the caliber of Penn, I believe either of them would would be an easy win for BJ. That along with a rematch with GSP and the chance to have a 2 belt holder are great reasons for him to move to WW. The first fight with GSP was great and he was dominatiing the first few rounds but then gased and lost it for himself. Now that both fighters have improved considerably (both mentally and physically) this could very well be one of the best fights in the history of MMA. BJ penn is more focused then he has ever been in his career which is resulting in a dangerous MMA weapon who is in great shape, has great cardio, and is training twice as hard. Then again GSP has gotten much much stronger from his win over Kos to when he beat Serra…This is will be an unbelavibe fight, two extremely well rounded fighters at the top of their game…

    Well the UFC has screwed themselves by putting grade A+ fighters in there b- weight classes. The 155lb. Div. was tore apart by B.J and now they cant get a contender b/c everyone is beating eachother. They are all on the same level as each other except for Penn. And the Middleweight division didnt have a chnce against Anderson Silva lol. He beat every fighter that was considered a world caliber fighter and beat them easily. Now they have nobody but Bisping to even challenge Silva and now they have only an overrated Britt. to challenge him for a blockbuster fight.And for it to be huge it would have to take place in U.K. Okami is good but I dont think he has fans. Seriously he lacks the star power. The definetly need to go out of the Org. and pick up some top middleweights instead of being uptight pricks and putting in fighters that are just okay and calling them challengers just to save a buck.

    It wouldnt make since for them to risk B.J losing before the GSP fight. Which is gonna be HUGE. I cant wait for it. Fitch is good but if GSp is on that night there is nothing fitch can do to him.

    It will be Penn vs. GSP and GSP will win more convincingly his time around.

    I think Penn is the best fighter in the world behind Anderson. I think Penn will win GSP. No doubt about that.

    I think a GSP VS Anderson would be more interesting, since GSP had good size for 185
