I've never heard of them doing a political win at Title Level...so that shoots down that theory Andreas

.....Regardless...Penn certainly lost at 155lbs

true, but unfortunately that's not how the UFC promos work.

it makes new MMA fans get more excited when they hear "AND NOW, KENNY KENFLO FLORIAN WILL CHALLENGE THE PRODIGY BJ PENN TO GIVE HIM HIS FIRST LOSS AT 155 POUNDS!!!"

newcomers hear that and will want to tune in and they will say "HOLY CRAP, THAT MUST BE REALLY IMPORTANT, I MUST WATCH THIS NOW!"

well that settles it. if Dave has never heard of it, then it must not be true?

Only because it takes more effort to promote useing the truth...which CAN be done to the same effect.

They never deserved Jens Pulver...
