UFC Quick Quote: Dana White on the reason BJ Penn vs Anderson Silva may never happen

"Is he tough enough to do it? Absolutely. Is he talented enough to go up there and do it? Absolutely. Does that mean he should do it? Absolutely not. He doesn't have the frame to carry that kind of weight and it just makes no sense."

-- UFC President Dana White elaborates via ESPN.com on the topic of former welterweight and current lightweight champion BJ Penn moving up to one day fight middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva. White has already revealed that he would allow reigning 170-pound titlist Georges St. Pierre to make the jump to create a superfight if he can topple the "Prodigy" for the second time on January 31. Penn -- for now -- does not appear to have that option. The fight between St. Pierre and Penn is the first time ever in the history of the promotion the champions from two different divisions will collide. St. Pierre's welterweight strap will be on the line.
