Do you really think BJ would try something in a fight if he hadn't drilled it and developed a degree of proficiency at it? Even "lazy-BJ"-era Penn deserves a bit more cred than that.

Did Brandon Vera need to reevaluate his stand-up and "learn to move properly" after breaking his hand in the Sylvia fight?
Yes, if you read my 1st post I said the same thing about Vera too. IMO, if you get injured IN the cage and it's not because of an illegal maneveur of your opponent, it's your fault.
