I don't see BJ beating Frankie at 155 or 145. He should be at 155, though. He's just wasting the limited time he has left in the sport, and who knows if he will even make weight.

It was close but there's a lot of fans who scored the first for Frankie.

Very close fight but I had Penn winning the first time narrowly. Edgar took the second fight without a doubt though.

I love the idea of BJ at FW if he can make the cut without any issues. Not sure how I feel about him fighting Frankie again to be completely honest. I just think there are to many good fighters at that weight to match them up against each other again.

This makes no sense to me at all.

I love BJ, but he lost to Edgar twice already IMO. I didn't think the fights were that close.

Wonder if the fight will be co main on a ppv
Or April fox card main event.

I saw the rematch in Boston.
Wouldn't mind seeing them fight again.

Thought BJ won the first fight. This third fight does nothing for me. Frankie will beat him up the entire fight.

I suppose this is one last attempt to save TUF, which I haven't watched in awhile and I don't think I am the only one who has quit watching.

I would rather have seen Edgar vs Faber. This seems like a pretty big gamble for the UFC and TUF. What do they do if BJ cant make weight? I guess you still have the fight, but at a catchweight.

There are too many good fights for Edgar at featherweight - I would rather see him fight Cub, Mendes or a rematch with Aldo.

Wow. I've been hoping for Penn to drop back down to Lightweight for a long time now. I'm completely shocked he decided to go one step further and fight at Featherweight. There are so many other fights I'd love to see but I'll take it. I hope we see Mike Dolce in BJ's corner for this fight. A motivated BJ is so much fun to watch.

Edgar won both fights, and I don't see this one going any differently. I don't know how BJ will make 145 when he didn't want to make the cut to 155 (whether by laziness or hopelessly trying to get a third fight with GSP at WW). Are they trying to fast track him to a "superfight" with Aldo to build Aldo's resume?

LW is where Penn belongs and where he should continue his legacy. He's not winning a belt anymore but his best chance to contend is at 155.

I think Edgar will go 3-0 vs Penn.

I don't really like this fight tbh. The original plan of Faber/Edgar would have been much better but Frankie didn't want to cut to 135, understandable.

Edgar has beat him twice and imo we've seen Edgar improve quite a bit since then and BJ just isn't the same BJ he once was. I may be wrong though, maybe fighting at 145 will be good for him. All out of the blue though and I'm still quite surprised by this haha.
