Really sad to see my favourite fighter getting tooled like that but I don't want him to retire just yet. Maybe he can move down to LW and fight someone like Maynard or gomi? WW divisions not just for him and if he ends up losing in LW than he seriously needs to retire
Before he retires, I want to see him have one last run at the light weight division. He never should have been in the ww division to begin with! I still think bendo would have the edge, but with frankie gone I could see him eventually being a legit #2 and he might even get the title back.
BJ is a fighter that needs much desire/ dislike to train for a fight, thats why I don't see a run in lw going well either. Maybe a vanity fight not sure who, but Gomi getting old to something along those lines. Just not a guy around in there prime and walks around 200#. That didn't work well last night for sure.
after last night, I think its time for bj to just pack it in. By this point, its only going to be downhill for him. Id rather not watch another one of the fighters who drew me in to MMA roll down the hill like chuck.
If BJ is determined to take one more fight before he's done, Id say Maia at 170 is where its at.
WW division is too stacked and the guys are too big for Penn. If he fights again it should be at LW. I'm honestly not surprised by what happened last night even though I love Penn.
BJ is still living the dream the Gracies planted that with proper technic the smaller guy can win. The only problem is the bigger guy knows the same technic's = to a bad beat down for BJ.
Lost a lot of respect for Rory, showboating like a douchebag.
