You are biased because your favourite fighter lost.
I have been there, but enough is enough, accept he got destroyed and he is just trying to make excuses.
He is making enough excuses for all his fans, so why don't you just move on?
I had a rant, but I don't see another place I was able to mock the OP for betting all his points on a fighter that wasn't training properly and came into the fight seriously out of shape (he was gassed after the first round)
Stop beating around the bush, and answer my question. Why didn't he just try something else if he is such a great fighter? Why didn't he keep the fight standing, or slip out of GSP's guard if GSP was covered in grease?
I am just telling it like it is, Penn is a cry baby. On another site I even predicted that he would retire if he beat GSP, and I was right about that too, he has said it himself.
I hate Penn's attitude, he feels he is entitled to things without earning them, he is a spoilt brat. He has had 5 title shots in the UFC and hasn't earnt at least 3 of them.
His first ever fight at welterweight was a title shot, which he won, but as soon as he was asked to defend it he ran away.
His first title shot was a shot at Pulver, which is the only one he actually earnt... he lost due to fatigue.
His second title shot at 170 was after a loss, which he also lost (putting him 1-2 in 3 fights at 170)
He dropped down to 155 in the UFC, and beat a rapidly declining Jens Pulver to demand a title shot... he didn't really earn it, but meh...
After a unification bout (that wasn't really, as Sherk was stripped, but in his head he still had Sherk to beat to be the champ) he decided that he didn't want to defend that title either.
So, despite having 2 back to back losses at 170, he proceeded to whine and moan and create a hype for a fight that would get him out of defending another title.
Hence, GSP/Penn2 was born.
So, by my counts, he has earnt 1 legitimate shot, and 1 semi legitimate shot out of 5 title shots, and both of them were at 155.
He is a spoilt brat, he wants everything his way, and he kicks and screams until he gets it.
I can't respect that, I don't know why you can, but I just wanted to explain my feelings so you didn't think I was just an angry prick.
I get well known on every forum I am on for never backing down, but I just don't care enough about this particular subject to post about it again.
So, to prevent this being prolonged any further... you win.
