    does bj fight now?

    part of the reason he came back was because it was a fight against a rising name at ww. he already turned down koscheck previously.

    Rep will be passed, good find here.
    I honestly doubt BJ will accept this since you are right, he turned down Kosh rather harshly...BUT Siyar will stand so BJ may be enticed by that...Who knows if Dana even wants that though.

    Does he fight now though? I say yes, UFC said nothing of Scrapping Penn.

    fuckin bullshit, these ufc fighters need to get there shit together.

    i say bj still fights though if they get another great fighter. the only reason he is fighting is for pride.

    BJ doesn't fight for Pride, it is title gold or cashmoney

    He isn't fighting for the Pride he is turning down fights with named opponents.
    He is fighting for money, that and that alone.

    I think a koscheck fight would have made more money then rory.

    perhaps he is avoiding wrestlers

    Don't fight Rory than.

    I see what your trying to do, but your avoiding my point.
    Kosh and Rory, probably VERY close to the same paycheck for BJ, who knows though so who cares.

    Kosh is a much more respected vet in the sport (no maybe not by you but by Dana and Lawrenzo and the people that pay his rent) and turning him down shows BJ isn't just in it for fighting the best to see who is the best. Josh had two fights with GSP that turned sour, not that went well, so I don't see why BJ was so scared anyway.

    i kinda wish he'd have another go at lw. he lost to one dude and decided cutting weight was gay.

    i don't really have an opponent off the top for him though. maynard has his badass moments as well as boring moments.

    im not avoiding the question im agreeing to disagree. koscheck will be a much bigger paycheck for bj since he is the bigger name with a record 21 UFC fights and people will watch him just to hope he loses. how does the average fan know rory? a few undercard fights.

    as i said before i think rory favors his kind of fight. koscheck will try to frustrate bj, hold him down, talk shit in his ear, etc. rory will try to match him skill for skill and i think bj likes that. bj has been looking for the right comeback fight for months, and as im sure you know, bj comes from a rich family, he is himself rich, so he doesnt need money usureboutdat
