Should BJ Penn Retire… The Poll

Well BJ Penn got his ass handed to him tonight by Frankie Edgar in a unanimous decision at UFC 118.

This being his second straight loss to a guy that ESPN ranked the previous fight with him as the biggest upset of the year.

Is it time for BJ Penn to retire?  There is no doubt in my mind that he will be selected to the  UFC Hall of Fame.
