Penn by whatever he wants, hopefully a KO (this is of corse if he keeps the LW belt after taking the WW belt).

I love Florian and he has always been one of my favorites. Im still a fan of the original three musketeers of TUF 1 (florian, quarry, and Leben) but i don't think florian stands a chance against penn. although i was extremely impressed with florian after las night!!!

Bj Penn by sheer domination with his boxing and takedown defense.

This is what I thought witht he fight vs. Joe, but he pulled it off quicker. Joe's biggest mistake was grabbing the fence. That left him open tot he choke big time.

Despite Florian winning he did show a weakness in his style. He doesn't like to be stalked. Did anyone else notice that when Joe was pressing the pace Kenny looked like he was panicking?

That being said, I think Penn will pressure him and end up with a TKO victory in Rd 2 or 3.

copy and pasted from another thread-

"kenflo has much better stand up, bj will try to bang, and he is no slouch with his boxing, but he is far from crisp.
If anyone is going to beat him, it will be florian.

Will I pick him? I dont know, I have months to think about it."

I would say Florian by UD or SD. Penn and Florian are warriors but it's Florian's time right now.

Florian is a great fighter and all, but Penn is on another level. BJ is one of the best P4P fighters out there and he is better than Florian in the standup and the ground.

I dont see Kenflo getting the belt as long as BJ has it. No way he's knocking BJ out and he's not going to sub him, the best chance he has is somehow coming through with a decision.

Too bad this wont happen for awhile.

if BJ leaves would we have a Florian Sherk rematch? I still don't think Florian can beat Sherk

BJ can beat Florian any way he wants to beat him. He can control the stand up with his boxing, or take him down and pound him out or submit him.

The first major difference I see between both these fighters is heart and integrity.....

Ken-Flo has never been guilty of over hyping himself, or using the excuse of being unfocused for the reason for losing a fight......

He owns his loses and never gives less than %110 in a fight, we see him get better and better with each fight

With BJ we hear that he is going to come out and be as focused as he once was like in the beginning of his career and are even told to go to BJ.com to find out how he really feels....

I see Kenny Zoolander Florian winning this fight and shutting down all the BJ hype

BJ will get stomped by GSP and then come back down and lose to Florian.

Whats next, Roger Huerta VS GSP?!
Come on? Very Disrespectful of Florian (Im a huge fan) to call out BJ Penn.
His "The Master Must Die" Shpeel was bogus.

KenFlo by dec. He's got over half a year to not only improve on his awesome grappling, but also to improve his already AWESOME standup while training with some of the best muay thai guys in the nation. plus i imagine penn will be focusing a lot on his wrestling for gsp and not so much on the ground and standup, which is where i think kenflo can out point en route to the decision.

Florians hands arent good enough to keep Penn off of him, and he can only kick-evade so much. Shit, look at how well penn did against machida while extremely overweight. Florians style reminds me alot of Machida on the feet... just without the same technique in his hands or movement with his footwork.

Penn is going to give Florian problems everywhere IMO.

i am honestly SHOCKED by the number of people who think that florian will win.

i have already learned my lesson (thanks to Pookie )

hopefully a lot more people pick Florian so the odds aren't too bad when BJ wins.

I know, I figured he'd be an underdog on here (because he is btw).
