I can tell you that BJ's not anymore, I don't know if Ellenberger is. In no stratosphere is BJ a world class welterweight. His past record, accumulated three years ago, is irrelevant in determining whether or not he's still an elite fighter. His only win in 3 years is over Matt Hughes. His only wins in the UFC at 170 pounds are over Matt Hughes. You don't have to like it, but those are the facts. You can discredit Ellenberger's opposition, but what cannot be ignored is that BJ hasn't even beaten fighters on that level at welterweight in ages. And the BJ Penn I saw go into the cage on Saturday would have nothing for any top ten welterweight, they would beat him soundly. Clinging to the past like people do with a Chuck serves no purpose, he is no longer an elite fighter at any weight, and hasn't been at welterweight in a really long time.

A Condit/MacDonald fight would be great, if a MacDonald/Ellenberger fight was to happen I'd be happy with that too.
