Rumors about B.J. Penn possibly pulling out of UFC 101, recently fueled by Diego Sanchez's comments that he could be ready to fight Kenny Florian at UFC 101, took a hit today with Penn's latest video blog.

The short, 19-second clip simply shows Penn, who defends his lightweight title against Florian at the Aug. 8 UFC 101 event, weighing in on a scale.

With six weeks left until the event, Penn is shown weighing a svelte 166.8 pounds, fewer than 12 pounds over the 155-pound limit.

"I better slow down and stopping losing too much weight," Penn says in the video. "I'm actually surprised the weight is coming off so quick."
