probably because bj penn wants to play out and see if he gets his title shot at 155. and then if he doesnt win the title go up to 170 and get that 3rd match with hughes

shame, that was looking like the best card ever. That fight could be a main event on its own, imo.

If that fight was on for ufc74 it would have been another very deep card. Having all these guys coming over from pride should make all the future pay per views consistently strong.

I am sure that this fight will happen sometime and Diego will get worked by BJ. I also agree that BJ is going to wait and see if he gets that title shot at the 155.

Yeah, I'd rather just see him stay at 155 and dominate everyone. Who do you guys think would win a Penn vs. Sherk?

I think Sherk would outwork Penn. Penn has always had a tendancy to fizzle out after 3 rounds. If Sherk still had the title I think the same thing would happen. I can't really see Penn submitting him or knocking him out and Sherk is just a cardio freak. It would be a geat fight to watch.
