    ... Who do they match him up with?

    The only 55er of note without a fight right now that I can think of is Gray Maynard.

    Maybe Nate Diaz if he gets past the Dentist?

    also, from junkie

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    haha, this is why I like Kenny Florian

    I'm interested to see who he fights. Gray Maynard has been fighting pretty tough lately, coming in under the radar. Nate Diaz would be raped by Florian -- and I can't think of anybody else, unless they throw him some new guy or they have Florian vs Huerta 2 :mamoru:

    secret NYE title bout between Penn and Florian? :noes:

    unfortunately, that won't happen, I think everybody knows that the next fight from Penn will be against GSP

    I could see him fighting the winner of Sherk/Griffin but they woudlnt be ready by Dec. Maybe Stevenson?

    I forgot about Joe. That'd be a good scrap. Florian would take it.

    guida vs kenny would look much like roger vs kenny did :hsd:

    danzig vs kenny would be interesting but im not convinced he gets by guida

    Good point about Stevenson, but I do think him and Florian would make for a good fight. I would guess the winner of that could face the winner of Sherk/Griffin, which I think will be Sherk. If Sherk and Penn ended up fighting again I dont think that would be bad at all because that fight was huge. I think BJ would beat Florian soundly but I would like to see him get a shot, but who knows

    It's a problem for sure.

    When you look at it this way, the UFC LW division seems overhyped. I guess the skill level is so consistant, and the gulf between BJ and #2, #2a, #2b is so glaring.

    Sherk had the WORST gameplan I've ever seen during the 1st fight. He could only do better again.

    Danzig is the best name in this thread.

    Danzig-Florian would be a fun fight.

    Maybe put Florian up against Aurellio..he is a big enough name to keep the Florian hype up if he wins while he waits for Penn, and I think Florian should be able to win against him

    This might even warrant it's own thread...


    Do you guys think BJ will come back down to 155 if he gets beat by GSP?


    He's not fighting for the money (his family is loaded if you didn't know) and I could see him being to proud to be 'going back' to fighting guys like Florian, Sherk, et al.

    Unless UFC brings in a big LW name (JZ, aoki, melendez) I could see BJ walking away altogether.

    i think either way Penn drops back to 155, there are still challengers left for him there

    "Challengers" in what sense of the word?

    Guys who want to "challenge" for his belt? Yeah, sure.

    Guys who will actually give him a challenge? Not likely.

    He has 1 title defense since beating Stevenson. So I would say he has plenty more fights

    Unfortunately there is not 1 top 10 LW in the UFC that he hasnt beaten.

    The only imports i see doing well and giving BJ a tough time are Alvarez, JZ, and maybe maybe Hansen or Josh Thompson if he keeps living up to his potential.

    There are plenty of guys in the UFC LW top 10 he hasn't beaten though.

    I meant that the only other top 10 LW in the UFC is Sherk and BJ mangled him. And outside the UFC there are only a few interesting matchups.

    BJ's line of thinking is 'none of these guys are close to me why should i bother?'. Dana lets BJ do whatever he wants, because if Dana says no BJ will walk away (again). UFC LW division suffers as a result.

    BJ beat two guys who are primarily wrestlers in Sherk and Stevenson. Let him go against a striker (Florian, Danzig) or a BJJ guy (Aurelio) or a haircut (Guida).

    I would HARDLY call Florian or Danzig a striker. and :rofl: haircut.

    I'd like to see BJ dominate, but there are far more fights at 170 that i'd like to see him in. Its unfortunate.
