After the California State Athletic Commission decision on Dec. 4 to reduce, but uphold, Sean Sherk’s suspension for a positive banned substance test, the Ultimate Fighting Championship organization withdrew recognition from Sherk as UFC Lightweight Champion.

Did he mean that he would never fight him or just that he wouldn't fight him if the UFC failed to strip him of his belt? I tend to think that if Sherk pays his dues, Penn would fight him.

He'd better. That's pretty stupid if he won't fight someone if he's champ. It doesn't matter though, Stevenson will be the next LW champ.

BJ will fight him, but imo i think they need to test a week before the fight so they know before, and then after too, i think a lot of it would stop if they did it that way.. you do it you dont fight

IF BJ will not fight Sherk what does that say about BJ? IMO it just shows that BJ Penn doesnt really want to get beat by Sherk shows that he might be kinda scared why else would he come out before the hearing and say he wouldnt fight a guy i dont know of any other champ interm or not that would refuse to fight somebody and the UFC not make them Tito didnt want to fight chuck the first time so they just put and interm belt up if BJ really wants to say hes champ he will have to beat somebody who is alot better than joe stevenson. If you are the champ you have to fight #1 contender regardless, if your not willing to do so your not the champ plain and simple

IMO he should have to fight once before getting a title shot, what kind of punishment is it to just be out for a short period of time, he would not have fought in that time any ways, now he gets a shot at the belt right when he returns. That is B.S. he should have to reearn his shot.
