I'm not sure how losing makes you more badass. GSP could go get his head knocked off by Dos Santos, according to your logic that would make him a badass?
Why doesn't Frankie Edgar go fight GSP then? He would end up in the hospital, but that would make him more badass right?
Hiding at 170, lol.
BJ Penn has lost plenty. But people call him a badass for not being afraid of losing. He is coming out of retirement, as a guy who could of made 145. To face one of the best prospects in MMA, a very large 170 that may go to 185. He decided to take on that challenge....even though he doesn't "have" to.
Does that makes sense?
