UFC Quick Quote: Ben Henderson has BJ Penn 'by homicide'

Penn_medium

"B.J. by homicide. I think that it's going to be the B.J. we're used to seeing. No offense to Frankie. I've never met him personally, but I'm sure he's a great guy and great fighter, but BJ is going to be coming with a vengeance and win by homicide...Frankie's a tough, tough guy and a great fighter. It won't end in the first or second round. If anything, it will be in the third or fourth round after wearing him down, taking his back and choking him out—typical B.J. Penn."

WEC lightweight champion Benson Henderson has a professional interest in tomorrow night's fight between UFC champion Frankie Edgar and his legendary challenger BJ Penn. Henderson has crept into the lightweight top 10 in the WEC and is clearly itching to move on to the major league of MMA. Henderson told the Bleacher Report's Josh Nason he doesn't just want to be the best in the WEC. He wants to be the best-period. Henderson's not the only one picking Penn. Oddsmakers peg the Hawaiian as the clear favorite. Who do you have in this title fight?
