Penn Looking Fit for Florian Bout
 
Found this on sherdog

B.J. Penn will defend his lightweight title against Kenny Florian on Aug. 8 at UFC 101. After competing at 170 pounds against Georges St. Pierre, hes on his way to 155 for Florian and weighted 166.8 on Wednesday.

Penn said on BJPenn.com hes surprised the weight is coming off so quickly and that he better slow down.



So I guess the question is answered, BJ is training hard for Ken-Flo

He HAS to be in good shape to make 155.

That he why it is such a good weight for him. It pushes him a lot harder then 170. It forces him to be in shape.

Exactly.

He can't be out of shape at 155

huh? didn't he weigh 168 for the gsp fight? people were saying he didn't but for that fight ... so if he didn't, why is he at 166 now? what is his walkaround weight?

Depends on what you mean by "cut"
You mean sauna out water weight? Normal guys maybe 10 lbs? A little more?
a little less. But I know a guy like Sherk walks around off Season up over 180 according to him.

BJ weighs at 155 and cuts little to none when he fights at 155

He said the same crap the last fight. Then he came in looking like he was in OK shape. I lost so much respect for him. He went from being my favorite fighter for the past several years to someone I like but don't came much if I miss his fight. I still would love to see him come in to the fight in amazing shape but I am not holding my breath.

he never told people his weight for the GSP fight. If I remember correctly the list fight that he talked about cutting weight for was the Sherk fight in which he went and got something to eat because he said he needed to add some weight.
