    I say rematch Machida! LOL

    But seriously he should challenge GSP. I think he would win if he had the right mindset.

    I actually thought a BJ Penn vs KFlo and someone else would be a good match. Well, at least until UFC 112.

    And I'm more concerned with where Gogodragon has gone. Should we alert the authorities, send someone to his crib to make sure he hasn't killed his wife or himself?

    I still see opportunities for him in lw for the time being, a build up of Gomi would result in a great fight to see. Another crack at Ken-flo for the number one contender would be fun to see, and Gray Maynard is still in the background. This isn't even mentioning the lw talents that could potentially be scooped up by the UFC in the future, specifically Eddie Alvarez and Aoki.

    If he goes up to WW, i'd like to see him fight anyone but Hughes and GSP, but not before the aforementioned LWs.

    I don't know how anyone could think BJ can be competitive at 170 again.

    I don't know how you think he couldn't. The Penn that showed up vs Sanchez would clear out the majority of the WW division, with only Alves, Fitch, and GSP being the legitimate challenges.

    I wanna see him take on Dan Hardy at 170. He looked like he only has 1 or 2 rounds of gas at 155.

    Want to see him rematch Edgar to make sure he just wasn't having an off night, then maybe something else.

    I'd actually love to see a rematch with Machida. He has a better chance of winning that fight than he has of beating GSP.

    I think he's gonna have to get his belt back before he's gonna get opportunities in other divisions though.

    This.

    Ken-Flo and Gray Maynard should fight for number 1 contender.

    Immediate rematch. Deal with whatever injury he has and then easily win the title back.

    I wouldn't call his loss highway robbery but it was a garbage decision.

    I talk to one of my friends that is pretty close to his camp, and said that he's going to be making an announcement pretty soon that he's going to move back up to WW and test the waters and see how that goes, obviously, he wants to work his way to another shot at GSP...

    Him staying in the LW division is pointless. He's beat everybody worth beating in that division, and for him to have to back track to get back to the top again is retarded.

    He has a torn ACL it will be a while before he fights again.

    Rematch, win the title back, bulk/work on cardio, then move up to 170.

    I'm a HUGE BJ fan and GSP is on my list of least favorite fighters... but I just don't see BJ ever beating GSP. GSP is just too big, too athletic, and too skilled.... I think BJ could steal a round or 2 off GSP, but ultimately over 5 rounds, GSP's constant pressure would wear out and beat BJ down.

    I think they can do a lot of things with him at LW now, and every scenerio is a win/win for the UFC.

    Kenflo vs. Edgar + BJ vs. Maynard for #1 contender
    Maynard vs. Edgar + BJ + Kenflo for #1 contender
    BJ vs. Edgar rematch + Kenflo vs. Maynard for #1 contender
    BJ vs. Gomi to get BJ a dominating win over a guy who still has a decent name.
