    Well, nevermind. Just found out that Sherks next opponent was going to be BJ. So like it was mentioned, Penn vs somebody else.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Urijah Faber called up from WEC and move up a weight class.

    Penn/Stevenson for the title is my guess. Unless they pull a miracle, find a loophole in Gomi's K-1 contract and bring him in.

    All this is assuming Penn can stay motivated and not gain weight.

    I'll admit, I cracked a smile when I read that so touche.

    But seriously, you guys think he has a good chance at becoming Welterweight champ?

    No. I don't. He'll be the Tito Ortiz of that division. Close, but not quite. Especially if B.J. Penn decides to move back up in the future.

    Both Sherk and Franca failed steroid tests

    So Penn/?? for the title? Gomi? Joe Daddy?
    I've read that the UFC can't strip Sherk until his August hearing. So as of right now he's still the LW champion. We'll see what happens, remember Marquardt tested positive and later had that repealed. I'm not sure though if both of Marquardt's samples tested positive like Sherk.

    I don't think Penn struggled at all to make 155. In the Jens fight he looked really cut and lean. Remember, for the Hughes fight BJ didn't cut weight, he came into the fight at I believe 167 pounds. Cutting weight isn't easy or anything but I don't think it is difficult for him to make 155. It's not like Sherk who walks around at like 180 when he's not fighting. It's just a bit more diet and then the weight cut for Penn to make 155. I've seen a lot worse when it comes to guys stuggling to make weight(Erik Morales comes to mind) BJ didn't look like that at all.

    I think that would be a good fight, although Stevenson is slated to fight Kurt Pellegrino at UFC 74 which is in August. Since Sherk's hearing is on August 3rd, I don't know if they'd ask Stevenson to pull out of that Pellegrino fight and take on Huerta. Although since it would be for the belt I'm guessing Stevenson would do it. Anyways, I think that Stevenson-Pellegrino fight will go off and it will be a #1 contendor's fight.

    The thing is, I think Penn's main motivation for moving up to 170 is that is where the names are. GSP, Hughes, Koscheck(on the rise), etc. Penn seems to be motivated by fighting the best. I think he would have stayed at 155 to fight Sherk because Sherk was building a legend for himself at LW and beating him would have added another notch to his belt. I don't know if fighting Roger Huerta or Joe Stevenson albeit both good fighters motivates BJ like fighting a rematch with GSP or completing his trilogy with Hughes.

    We'll see, anytime BJ fights I'm watching, it's always an interesting fight because he brings so much to the table.
