This statement is absolutely absurd.
Bendo could beat Penn because of his wrestling & multi-dimensional striking. Everyone else you listed would be an underdog against BJ.
Nate Diaz is not his older brother, & Nick took some huge shots against BJ. It'd be a war, but Penn would win.
Maynard has always been hesitant about fighting BJ. If Penn can fend off takedowns at 170 he can stuff Grey's shot. Maynard has big power but is not a better boxer than BJ.
Lauzon & Miller are just laughable. Penn is superior to them in all aspects of MMA.
