    What would be best for Penn is if he went to train at Tristar and went down to LW.

The only fight that surprised me was Goose vs Shogun, because Goose let shogun get inside so easily on him, but the outcome was fully expected.
    For me the only surprise was Goose's chin. I have seen Shogun level guys with those shots. So here we potentially are at a possible Jon Jones vs Gustafason match when I said a long this dude has the ability to beat Jones.

    However his wrestling defense will be a problem and I suspect Jones would attempt to put him on his back and keep him there. The fight would be like watching Henderson Vs Diaz all over again but much more boring.

    Watching a hipster do the ali shuffle made me laugh.

    Boo
    Time for BJ to retire. I think even at lightweight he is going to get beaten up. I've never been a fan, but even I don't want to see that. Like someone mentioned, the times have passed him by.

    Lack luster conditioning, poor footwork, doesn't check leg kicks, doesn't protect his midsection.

    Bendo would abuse him too.

    The only way BJ should keep fighting is at LW he's wasting his time and hurting his legacy at WW.

    The checking legkicks and protecting the mid-section comments are bogus. How many other guys at any weight class have taken Penn apart that badly? Rory is damn good. Not everyone has his striking & wrestling skills.

    BJ has only shown poor conditioning at 170. At 155 he always seemed to have good cardio. Rory had a very long reach & size advantage, and (as mentioned above) he's just damn good. Top lightweights like Maynard, Cerrone, & Miller aren't putting together combos to the head & body like Rory, & none of them have his wrestling either. Maynard may be skilled but he's a lot smaller. No LW has ever been able to keep BJ down.

    Pettis may have striking as good as Rory's but Guida proved his takedown defense left something to be desired.

    Bendo's the only guy at 155 that poses similar problems for BJ as Rory, but he wouldn't have a massive reach or size advantage.

    end it with a left
    I would like to see him fight Maynard at 155. He's not too fast for BJ and they would have a war. Or if he wants to try and show that it was Nicks size that made him win he could go be a punching bag for Nate. I quite enjoy watching when the Diaz's can open up with their striking and talk some shit

    This. I think he's done completely, LW or WW. He's a all time great, but his cardio is atrocious these days. His last two fights he gassed in the first round. I just don't see a run happening. Maybe a fun fight, but nothing serious.

    An all time great for sure, but I think his time is done. Always up to the fighter though.
