    if hes learned to be aggressive after the throw/takedown, he is top 10. if hes still fighting as usual i'd say he loses to top 10. i love watching him fight, but he doesnt make good use opportunities after completing the throw. that lack of aggression is the only thing thats kept him from being a serious contender, in my opinion anyway.

    He may not climb in the rankings, but he can still put on an interesting fight. Something worth watching more than another BJ Penn fight

    At least Penn has a (legitimate) win in the UFC. It's 5 years and a day since Sexyama was gifted that decision against Belcher, the sport has moved on so much since then and at his age I doubt he will have been evolving with it. When he fights again I will be hoping he is competitive but expecting the worst.
