BJ Penn not fighting UFC 99?

This absolutely totally sucks.  That means the LW belt will go undefended for over 1 year.  I’m one of the biggest BJ Penn fanboys out there, but a champion needs to defend his belt at least once a year.  BJ has said before that he’s aiming to have a longer career by not fighting every weekend, but sheesh.

BJ wants to be with his newborn during this time, and I think he doesn’t want to fight in Germany.  The money in German fight is much less than a fight in the states, with PPV points vs. possible Spike free broadcast.  Kenflo is the guy who ultimately loses here, and all of the haters have another reason to hate on Penn.  Hopefully it’ll be worth the wait.

At least BJ doesn’t want to put it off to pursue modeling or making terrible movies.
