"I think that both of us are very strong and it would be hard to find weaknesses in either of our games. The fight is going to come down to who is better prepared on the day of the fight. There is nothing negative that I can say about BJ, he is one of the best fighters out there.... He trains very hard for his fights and he fights at 155 lbs. so I don't think that cardio is going to be a factor for him. Obviously BJ will have to be in shape to make the weight."

Lightweight Joe Stevenson talks about his upcoming fight with BJ Penn at UFC 80: "Rapid Fire" on January 19, 2008, in Newcastle, England, for the interim 155-pound championship. That tag could soon change to "vacant" now that credible reports indicate that Sean Sherk will be stripped of the strap because of a positive test for illegal steroids. Stay tuned.
