Former two-division UFC champion BJ Penn thinks he’s found a home in the featherweight division and says he feels great at 145-pounds.  “The Prodigy” takes on Frankie Edgar for a third time at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale on July 6 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

    0 – 3 versus Edger.

      I’m with you but if BJ KO’s Edgar in the first I will run out of the bar screaming lol I’ve always felt if Frankie got rocked by BJ he wouldn’t get the chance to recover. BJ’s a killer when he’s got you hurt. But I’ll believe it when I see it.

        It would be awesome if BJ gets one back. If they had put the fight on UFC175 I’d actually order it

        I think several million fans would lose their minds! Has he ever got someone hurt but fail to finish the fight? (Like Edgar-Maynard II and III)?

      The fifth fight should be both of them as an X-arm tag team against Hong Man Choi with post-fight bonuses paid in crack

    I like where BJ’s head is at, and as a fan since he dodged that flying side kick and ran out of the ring I hope he wins this. However, I’m not holding my breath. People can say what they want about BJ but he has always looked for the biggest fight that he could get. When BJ left the UFC he was fighting @ 155, he went on to fight 170, 185, and then Machida in an open weight match(not 205 as others on here have said) BJ weighed in @ 191, while Machida Weighed in @ 225 (ok 224.9). I can’t help but respect the way he looks for the hardest fight that he can get rather than the safest to move forward.

      oh you big style have to respect BJ taking on any man any size, these days the norm is to cut as much weight so you are bigger than the other fighter. But i think BJ will be too far behind the standard of fighters now, i hope im wrong tho would like him to win this fight tho i like edgar too
