I completely disagree.
While I admit that GSP is far more athletic then BJ Penn, BJ has more tools which make him dangerous. All GSP has is decent striking, and a sick take down ability. BJ has sick take down defense, and a ridiculous ground game.
Way to exclude his improved and impressive MMA grappling skills.
He has really good stand-up too, maybe not as crisp with the hands as BJ, but he's got a more diverse striking skill-set, not to forget much better movement.
Since his controversial win over BJ in 2006, when was the last time GSP smashed a solid competitor? He's crushed two has-beens, sure, but he couldn't finish Fitch OR Koscheck.
Now you're just saying things that make no sense. He's absolutely worked everyone he has ever fought except Matt Serra (in the first fight) and BJ. Just because you don't finish someone doesn't mean you aren't making them look terrible the entire fight.
Granted those two guys are mega tough and he dominated the fight, but BJ finishes fights because he has teh skills!
BJ's a great fighter, one of my favourites, but you need to take his balls out of your mouth. The last two fights he has had, he has been the heavy favourite to win. He hasn't faced another guy as well-rounded as himself since his loss to GSP at welterweight.
I understand what you mean about him 'dominating' the fight. You're basically saying GSP is turning into the Forrest Griffin, and doesn't finish guys.
Once again, what? GSP has finished 2/4 of his opponents, even then the fights that went to decision weren't even close. He outclassed each of those 4 guys in EVERY aspect of MMA.
I hope BJ shows why he's the Protege and I think he will!
It's gonna be a SICK fight.
Just my thoughts.
BJ's not the protege, he's the "prodigy".
