This fight is win win for me. I am a fan of both. Either BJ comes back, proves he is still the best at LW against the obvious no.1 contender, and takes his grease aggression out on K-FLO, or Kenny steps up and beats a legend, completing one of the best improvement stories and setting up a sherk rematch for the title.

Could see a TUF 1 Finale rematch as well. Sanchez vs. Guida looks like a better title eliminator than Sherk vs. Edgar.

Whatever the result of this fight, I'm glad to see the 155 lbs. championship being defended again. I was starting to believe Sherk's statement that the #1 contender is the de facto 155 lbs. champion.

I dont really like either guy, but I will be rooting for and picking kenny. And Im excited for it to be a 5 rounder.

I know kenny can go full force all 5 rounds.

What would make you lose respect for BJ. That he lost a controversial fight or that he is following through with doing something about it and making sure it doesn't happen again. Which would you rather happen this get taken care of now or come out at the end or GSP's career and we never know if he really was as good as he seemed. We all should be thanking BJ for doing this because now we will either see GSP not be as dominant in his fights or prove to everyone that it never mattered and keep on running though people.

If all of that were true it would be understandable, but Penn is blatantly calling into question the results of the fight, which GSP was dominating in in all aspects of. Its a cheap shot, that's why many people feel Penn has sullied his character. How anyone could question GSP's victory over a trainer applying minor amounts of Vaseline is beyond me.

Penn is on a downslide, his ego and emotions are getting the best of his fighting and because of that Florian will beat him.
