GSP vs. BJ Penn will most likely happen in Feb. 2009!

BJ Penn Expecting To Fight In December
By Jason Perkins | August 18, 2008

It's looking more and more unlikely that BJ Penn vs. Georges St. Pierre will happen this year as originally expected.
First, St. Pierre publicly stated his need for a rest on a blog he posted for the French Canadian website

I don't know if I'll be stepping back into the Octagon before 2009.

I've fought four times in the last 12 months. I therefore need some rest. I like the life I lead, but I sometimes need to relax.

It's not the fight as such that's exhausting; it's all the preparation that comes with it. I've made so many sacrifices to prepare myself. During training camps, I practically do not live anymore. It's therefore on a psychological level that I need to recharge.

Now JD Penn, BJ Penn's brother, is stating that Penn is training and expecting a fight sometime in December, but that the fight in question will likely not be against Georges St. Pierre. Instead, the two UFC superstars appear to be eying a return engagement in February 2009 as part of the UFC's Superbowl card.
That's good because BJ should defend that belt one more time before going up to WW! It will probably be against KenFlo!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
