Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight titleholder B.J. Penn moves back up to the welterweight division to take on UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre on Super Bowl weekend, Jan. 31, in Las Vegas for the welterweight title. Speculation about what weight class Penn's fighting future would be in if he defeats St. Pierre has swirled since the bout agreements were signed.

i like it but i don't, by defending both titles we will have two of the deepest divisions in the organization on ice for a while, that doesn't really set in well with me.

agree that he will lose to gsp, but he won't get destroyed it's going to be a very good fight, but i don't see him losing to florian unless kenny pulls a serra.

I agree with you but I think Kenny will be less of an underdog against BJ than Serra was against GSP.

only because GSP Serra 1 happened. No one will take a title fight that lightly for a while.

Come on man, Florian is legit and for real, there is absolutely no comparison with Serra, if Florian win it will not be a fluke at all like it was with a not legit fighter who won his championship spot by beating 2 or 3 third class fighters in the less impressive TUF line up we ever seen.

Good point, But Lauzon - Stevenson - Huerta arent exactly top ten fighters either.

why do you GSP fans like to shit on serra so much? it honestly sounds a lot worse when you say GSP got beat by someone who sucks.

Short, sweet and to the point, it will be a good fight but ultimatly bj will make history and when and if he wins the haters better be quiet with this overrated/hype b/s.

On a side note Penn vs Anderson is a dream fight!!! I think dana knows that BJ would be a good match for Anderson win or lose and even if GSP beats BJ I'd still say BJ has a better shot at beating Anderson that GSP does style-wise, Dana's just worried about the weight issue and he dosnt want anyone to have 3 belts (which would be moronic really).

BJ's my favorite fighter. But it's really hard to pick who will win his fight against GSP.

Anyways with the florian fight..........Kenny's gonna be crying himself to sleep for a couple of weeks after that fight with BJ.

I think Penn is a good match up for Anderson but I think Anderson takes it.. I also expect Penn and GSP to be a great fight I am picking GSP but I do not think one will walk over the other it is also going to be a great fight..

Oh, in my book Huerta and Stevenson were top ten for sure and that's probably why Stevenson got a title shot against BJ !!

And what about BJ, the guy lost to Hughes and then go back in 155 to beat the MACHINE Pulver ?? and Stevenson too like Florian did but BJ was less impressived unless you are afraid of blood and " not on roid " Sherk in a boxing fight !!

Yeah , BJ is REBORN and he really proved it in his last 3 wins at 155 !!??

GSP by complete domination , and Florian by game plan !!!

in 2009 BJ will have 0.000 belt to defend !! lol
