His mma guard has been awful. His jitz in mma has been just plain underwhelming. He's never subbed someone off his back he never sweeps he just locks up and tries to avoid damage. And hit guard is not nearly as affective at welterweight.

I'll agree with this. Off his back BJ has been very underwhelming when you consider how talented we all know he is. He basically throws up his rubber guard and seems to wait until they get stood up.

I'm really pulling for Penn, but I have to agree. His guard is not dangerous in MMA. Or at least it hasn't been up to this point.

Eddie Bravo called BJ's rubber guard and foot-on-hip-control amazing on a Joe Rogan podcast after Frakie Edgar II.

I don't agree with that. He has the best rubber guard in the UFC, probably mostly because he can do it without using his hands which most people can't do.

I've spoken to Eddie personally about rubber guard in mma. He thinks BJ is the best at it but he says the same thing I'm saying. He has good control from mission control but he never takes the next step. That's not good rubber guard. It would be like saying someone's back control is amazing but all they do is hold guys for five minutes. Yeah it's impressive control but if you can't take the next step you can't call it amazing.

B.J. is one of my favorite fighters of all time and it goes without saying the man is a living legend. Having said that I dont think he can pull this off.
