Damage can't really be used as a measure to judge a fight. Different fighters take damage more easily than others. If you're gonna call it that way, then Florian beat Sherk too...That's why fights are judged on takedowns, shots landed, submission attempts...and just keeping the fight moving overall.

A split decision was ridiculus! I rember the last time I saw the fight before last night was when it was live and at that point I was a little sceptic over who won but watching it now its as clear as day that GSP won. Yes GSP's face wasnt looking to good but he kept fighting and definatly took rounds 2 and 3. How did the judge give any round besides 1 to BJ?

GSP lost the first round, but then he took the fight to Penn. GSP dictated (not dominated, dictated) the course of the fight. Penn reacted to what GSP did. Penn was never the aggressor; GSP was.

Did u even read the one line.....Under UFC rules GSP won. The damage part is obviously not a way of scoring an official UFC fight....its a comment dude.

The smartest post in this thread...
GSP showed tremendous heart in there, and came back to win while down and with a swollen eye and bloody nose. Penn showed his ring rust, or just lack of either cardio training and/or proper diet, dont give me any of this genetics horse shit. To me, he belongs in 155, and it showed in his last two fights. GSP did what he had to do to secure the win, and he deserves the win.

I just can't understand how you can win a fight simply by takedowns. I don't like that. I've said it a hundred times. It's just like the Bonnar/Rashad fight. Just cuz you can take someone down doesn't mean your a better fighter, it just means you are good at take downs and that you are physically stronger than your opponent. If you can't do any damage after a takedown, then how can a takedown be scored in your favor? It doesn't make sense. Wow he took him down...big deal. He still didn't win the FIGHT. Maybe a takedown contest but this is a fight and BJ beat GSP up and GSP did NOT beat BJ up.

I watched the fight again last night.

I think GSP definitely won the fight.

GSP looked worse because of the eye poke and tapped nose.

I thought GSP showed great composure after the eye poke. His eye was bleeding and he just kept going. If it wasnt for the eye poke I think he might have won the first round as well. Rounds 2 and 3 were definitely GSPs.

But after the first round, BJ Penn didn't do any damage either. All he did was defend against GSP - so how can you score those rounds for BJ Penn?
