    Penn never had a fight plan until he fought Fitch. It was the first time he'd ever employed one. He's stated that in interviews. I don't know why he abandoned it against Diaz.

    Frankie is a winnable fight for Penn, regardless.

    "absolutely clowned him" is a bit of an overstatement. It was a clear and convincing win, but not in any way dominant, in my opinion.

    I'm reserving opinion on how the fight will play out and how strong the Wandi/jackson comparison may apply...but I'll go as far as to state the first two fights can't even remotely be compared: Wandi finished rampage in their earlier meetings. Left him hanging "on the fence."

    Penn/Edgar 1 was a close contest that I felt Penn won. Regardless of your opinion, it was a razor thin decision.
    Penn/Edgar 2 was a clear and convincing win for Edgar, but at no point did he have Penn in danger. He out-busied him. He learned from the first point on how he could score points and he went out and scored them.

    Saying he clowned him is like saying Weidman has "dominated" Silva twice. Or that Jon Jones' length advantage doesn't win him fights.

    He could've been on weight last week, the week before, the week after the fight and it won't matter because he will lose to Edgar anyway.

    i will never get sick of hearing a *what seems to be* motivated BJ Penn. My question is simply this; will training with Barao and Aldo change his stance on wanting the 145 belt? I read the other day that Aldo's manager says he wants to start fighting at 155 so maybe this opens the door for BJ?

    He better pray to what ever Hawaiian god he believes in that he doesn't beat Edgar. Because Aldo will beat him into a living death.

    When is this fight suppose to even take place? Seems kinda silly to keep Edgar out of action for over a year...
