He would have 1 win in a row. And 1 win in division in 2 years. Rory is barely top 10 if he is in the top 10 yet. He is a good fighter with a ton of potential but is at least 2 fights from a title fight himself.

If BJ is to ever get another title shot it is MUCH more likely to happen at 155 than 170. He is sub .500 at 170. The guy is a warrior who is always game but he isn't near the fighter he once was.

jiujitsu100 - No one, and I mean no one in their right mind, wants to see George destroy BJ again. BJ has done too much for this sport to be put through that. GSP is an will always be the better fighter at 170.
Agreed. Phone Post

The thing is BJ is more of a natural 155 that tries to go up to 170, while GSP is a natural 185 that cuts down to 170. So BJ can do well if they wanna bang but BJ isn't out wrestling anyone at 170 and defiantly not GSP. Phone Post

If BJ wins the 155 crown it isn't exciting to me. Edgar will play pattycake with him and may get the W. No one at 155 wil actually want to engage with BJ.

If BJ beats Rory I won't be surprised if he retires.

ranier wolfcastle -

frankies gone from 155

bj needs to get back down there and make a run at a champ he hasnt already fought

This would be ideal, hence, it won't happen. Phone Post

Mark Hunter - I agree . . . if BJ wins, give him Condit, and then a title shot. He will have earned it. If he loses in the title shot to GSP, that will probably be his (real) retirement bout. He will be able to retire knowing he gave it one last title run.
Good post. Would vote up if I could. If he wins he should get Condit, Hendricks, or Diaz again (I think in a rematch penn would use his wrestling and grind out a decision)

Granted these are all tough fights, BJ definitely has a chance in all of them. I know the Diaz fight was ugly but I think he would have a better game plan in a rematch.

I'd like for BJ to get one more crack at GSP and like u said, if he loses he can retire knowing he got one last crack at it. Nothing to be ashamed of. Dudes a legend and a beast. Phone Post

HELL NO.

BJ has been handed more title shots than anyone in the history of MMA.

He should have to win 4 or more fights at welterweight before even being considered. His record, let alone his WW record is not very good at all.
