    ha ha Rivethead cut me a break I had just gotten of work. Although i don't think he would take a fight against a female (i think i don't actually know mia is female) rapper. It would give him a reputation as a woman beater, and that would be horrible.

    I know it costs a lot of money to live that lavish lifestyle, big house, fast cars, and you need big fights, but sorry I’m not coming back anytime soon

    B.J. Penn Declines Fight with Josh Koscheck: 'I'm Not Coming Back Anytime Soon' | MMAWeekly.com

    Thanks but no thanks.

    On late Wednesday evening, UFC welterweight Josh Koscheck revealed that he had been offered a fight against former two-weight class champion B.J. Penn, and he immediately accepted.

    At the time, Koscheck was still awaiting word back from Penn and his camp to if they would accept the fight.

    On Thursday, Penn answered back and returned in form on Twitter stating that hes not ready to come back yet, and would not be facing Koscheck.

    I know it costs a lot of money to live that lavish lifestyle, big house, fast cars, and you need big fights, but sorry Im not coming back anytime soon, wrote Penn when addressing Koscheck on the social networking site.

    Penn has backed off his retirement statements of late, but it looks like whenever the UFC was asking him to step into the cage with Koscheck was sooner than he was ready to return.

    The former welterweight and lightweight champion stepped away from the sport following a loss to Nick Diaz at UFC 137 last year, and since that time has kept his statements vague about returning to fighting.

    Just recently, UFC President Dana White revealed that Penn would come back to the Octagon, but it looks like it wont be for the fight with Josh Koscheck.

    When Penn will return and who its against will remain a mystery for now.

    I really want to see Bj fight again but not at 170. Im tired of seeing him loose to bigger stronger guys. I admire Bj hart but unless he wants to retire again he needs to fight at 155. Kos can take Bj down and hold him there all fight. Kos also never gets tired witch is a huge problem for Bj. Bj hasnt really had a decent win at 170 for a long time. He beat and over the hill Hughes and got a tie against Fitch.

    Bj could make another run at 155 IMO. I dont think he could win more than 2 in a row at 170.

    This is a fight I have wanted to see for a long time and I am glad it is finally happening.

    I think Koscheck takes this via decision. BJ Penn will win the first round but Koscheck will use his size to eventually wear Penn down and win rounds 2 and 3. Should be a pretty epic clash.

    Is this cool or not cool? What say you, MMA community?
    Well, it is Koscheck we are talking about here. It's a pretty smart idea though if he really really wants to fight him.

    I personally think Koscheck will go and trade with him on the feet, but in doing so, he will go ahead and lose via UD and another eye shut...

    If this fight happens, then I think BJ will beat Kos up. Because Kos doesn't seem to use his wrestling anymore, and in a stand-up battle, gotta give it to BJ. Although I think Kos is trying to goad Penn into fighting him, which might not work. Interesting to see though. BJ NEEDS to move back to 155 IMO he is the best that he can be there.
