Malvert the Janitor - So let's review...

BJ will fight at 145 (Marv, please..)
Was the 155 champ
Was the 170 champ
Went 2-0 at 185
And fought Machia when Machia weighed 220...

How can anyone disparage this man???

TBidness - Having BJ on as a coach is awesome as is, "Wang! You're gone bro! You're gone."

Nothing beats the fighter selection episode...

Not interested. BJ will kill himself getting to that weight and lose again to Frankie.

BJ needs to be at 155 Phone Post 3.0

so they're coaching?
whatever, at least Maynard and Diaz might still be a 5 rounder.

so this means we get to wait till next summer for this fight. God I hate how tuf just stalls out a fighters career, they should just have injured fighters coaching.

I'm a huge Frankie fan, he won both fights before and he'll win this one too. With that said, I'm beyond ecstatic to see the Prodigy return.

THERE WAS A GLITCH IN THE MATRiX - glad Penn is back, but this a boring fight!
I usually reserve my votedowns for Dan the Wolfman, but then you came along with this horseshit. Phone Post 3.0

So this is what happened:
They were looking to have Edgar and Faber. Frankie did not want to move down, Faber is comfortable at 135. So they were talking about a catchweight fight, which Dana was not thrilled about. BJ texts Dana saying he wants to face Ben Henderson. Dana asks BJ why? BJ's response: If he beats Ben, Dana will give him the fight he wants....Frankie Edgar. He wants to beat Frankie, the losses have really been bothering him.

Dana tells BJ that Frankie is now at 145. BJ then says he will beat Frankie and then challenge Aldo. Dana said this is not a number one contender bout, but said if BJ could beat Frankie and another fighter, maybe he gets a title shot.

One positive: When BJ gets really fired up and motivated, he is fun to watch. Also, no titles being held up for TUF.

BJ has signed a brand new contract.

Frankie will have a great team with Mark Henry, Phil Nurse, and Ricardo Almedia. Renzo could be there as well. Should be a great season Phone Post 3.0

While I know who you are talking about, I first thought of the WWE wrestler Mark Henry.

If BJ can finish Frankie I imagine he will get a title shot no matter what DFW is saying right now! Phone Post 3.0

Rightly or wrongly, feels increasingly rare to hear this kind of exciting news in mma now. I know it might not make a whole lot of sense and i realise the shortcomings that BJ has experienced in his career vs potential...but am very excited to see BJ in new weight class - looking forward to this very much, hope he comes to fight!!

Oh and i think that BJ can win handily if he comes in any sorta shape (which with the weight i assume he will) and can come with any sorta aggression (which i worry about slightly at this stage as a father etc)
