I dont like BJ or anyone in his camp. They all are arrogant to a level that is disrespectful to there opponent and the UFC. That is not what Martial Arts is about. They are fighting in the UFC, not the WWF.

I agree holding the choke was in bad taste, the blood thing is kind of funny to me, but i can see why people dislike it.... I honestly hope he puts a beating on GSP. I like GSP but BJ is hands down my fav fighter and i think he'll shock the world with his new work ethic and now that he ACTUALLY trains!

i cant wait to see bj put the beat down on peppy la pue. this is going to be a great fight. the one thing that i dont like is the holding the choke on pulver. But heat of the moment thing and didnt they have some bad blood. I think he should have defended his belt one more time before jumping to 170. But that is a whole different thread so. bj is my favorite fighter and i hate gsp so my decision may be slightly biased. I am not disrespecting gsp skills he is crazy good, i just dont really like him.

dont worry he will have plenty of time to defend his lw belt once GSP owns him.

I just finished watching GSP and Fitch on Spike TV. The last round was very moving. Before the round, GSP shook Fitch's hand, and gave him a pat of encouragement. At the end of the round, GSP fell to his knees and bowed to his opponent. That is true respect. After he got up, GSP told him that this loss would make Fitch a better fighter. THEN, GSP shook BJ Penn's hand, and said he would fight him or anyone else, no questions asked.

That is a true warrior.

BJ Penn, on the other hand, walks into the ring, obviously overweight, getting booed by the Target Center audience, but still trying to get their support anyway,gesticulating wildly, asking for their (non-existent) support. No class.

I don't hate him, but I'm not a fan of anything other than his talent.

I admit BJ is good, but I dislike him alot. He is a cocky dreamer who at the moment is holding an entire LW division as hostage while he is waiting for the GSP fight. He doesn't fight frequently enough to be able to defend even 1 belt enough and now he goes for second? riiiight... Worst case scenario is he actually beats GSP, because then we most likely wont see WW belt being defended at all on 2009.
No worries though I don't see a way Penn can beat GSP though, gsp has improved so much compared to Penn since last fight, it'll be far from close fight unless Penn pokes both of GSP's eyes this time. ^^

After GSP and Kenflo are done with him he doesn't have any belts left to stall entire divisions with though, and on that point I don't care who he fights.

BJ wouldn't really be shocking anyone if he were to defeat GSP. He at least proved since defeating Pulver that he's in a different state of mind. In any manner though, it's a true pick 'em fight, one I believe will ultimately come down to whom the better conditioned fighter will be. Where BJ lacks for in terms of athleticism, he has in pure talent.

Neither of them have any real substantial deficiencies in their game, which is what makes a fight of this caliber so exciting to watch. GSP's MMA wrestling is on near uncharted levels right now, enough to put BJ squarely on the mat, but BJ also has excellent scrambling and sufficient dexterity that could thwart away GSP's biggest window of the fight.

Suizida tried to tell me that Jardine's Techno viking monkey style was too much for Vera's overhyped skills but i was to busy nuthugging to listen to 'the truth'
