"The Prodigy" B.J. Penn sprinted into the limelight of the UFC fame back in 2001 with three successive victories by (T)KO.

Some 10 years later, his relevancy is still a staple in the promotion and his ability to compete at the sport's highest level has not diminished.

Recently moving back up to welterweight, he once again finds himself within the title talk of the division.

His welterweight title elimination fight resulted in a majority draw at UFC 127 in Sydney, Australia.  This ruling provided no clarity with respect to his direction for the title belt.

Therefore, I have compiled a list of the five welterweight challengers that make sense for B.J. Penn to face at 170 pounds.

I welcome your comments.
