UFC 80: BJ Penn and Joe Stevenson fight talk (Video)

Perhaps the lack of hostility and the amount of respect that BJ Penn and Joe Stevenson have for one another heading into their showdown this weekend are among the reasons no one seems to be amped for this fight.

Even if you don't like the rest of the card this main event is going to showcase a nice scrap.

Not to mention it will crown a new lightweight champion and set up some great fights for the remainder of 2008 (barring shoulder surgery, steroid suspension or some other issue, of course).

Wake up, maniacs. Sheesh.
