    I think Penn will win his belt back. He almost needed this loss at LW i hope it motivates him, and brings back the beast/prodigy.

    Will be a replay of the last fight; with the exact same decision result.

    Penn should have gotten back in line, the same way GSP did (after his loss to Serra) and the way Fedor will, now, after his loss to Werdum; assuming Werdum fights Overeem.

    As I see the result being the same as the first, I fail to see why this fight was scheduled; Edgar should (probably) be fighting Maynard.

    I’m sure he will be champ again, but it may take a while and he has to be on his toes and in shape to run that division; 155 is probably the most stacked and competitive division in the UFC and if Jose Aldo decides to go up in weight, it will only get tougher (as a class).

    And a permanent move to 170 is out of the question, particularly given Penn’s hit-and-miss training habits; he’d wouldn’t beat the big fish in 170; certainly not the biggest fish.

    Like Diego Sanchez, Penn is best served and suited, in the 155′s. And the only thing you could do for his game? Keep him in shape (as he was for his Sanchez fight), put more muscle on him and maybe, maybe, work on his wrestling (Edgar, Maynard, Griffin are all better wrestlers). Other then that, I don’t know what you do with Penn – he’s got everything else.

    His biggest problem is being in shape. The Penn that fought Sanchez probably beats everyone in 155 (except for, Aldo, if he comes up…that fight could easily go to JA…would be epic to watch, either way). The Penn that fought FE and lost, was not in the same shape.

    I picked Edgar in the last fight. I’ll pick’em again; he’s too fast and too good a wrestler; he’ll out work Penn, again. BJ will never get him to the ground; he would never keep him there if he did – there goes a huge chunk of Penn’s game; Edgar will be free to stand and trade, move in and out and will and set up the take down – Edgar by decision.

    I don’t think that there is any way of knowing until after he fights Edgar again.

    @ MMAfan

    Ah – another knuckle dragger. How big is your cave MMAfan? Do you do all your own cave drawings?

    Nice handle by the way; very original. Did you come up with that by yourself? MMAfan, it’s as if you used your handle to tell the world that you are a fan of MMA; very clever. Surely, you are gifted; an idiot savant, if you will; kind of the “Rain Man” of MMA. By chance, are you good with numbers and do you have little-to-none, in the way of social or coping, skills?

    Concluding – MMAfan…I know you mumble to yourself a great deal and I have therefore deduced, that your comment is/was directed at and intended for – yourself. Subsequently, I forgive you. And don’t be so hard on yourself; it’s not your fault that you are mentally impaired; or “retarted”, as you say.

    And MMAfan – the word is “RETARDED” not “retar-TED”; you should learn how to properly spell (the name of) the affliction from which you suffer. And as a reminder, I’m giving you a new handle/nickname and that is…Ted. You shall hence forth and forever, be known as – Ted.

    Go back out into society with my blessing….Ted…and remember…don’t drag your knuckles, so much, and watch spelling.

    I thank you for reading my post Ted and I encourage you to continue, doing so. I believe they are helping you.

    Cheers,

    Wing Chun
