I would love to see these bj fight anderson I would like to see anderson fight someone good at 205. I think that I wish we could see the best fight the best kind of like the first ufc's So when we had a winner it meant something. I think those 3 champs Anderson Bj and GSP deserve there titles but I question the other two champs, and I've heard arguement for all 3 of them being the best p4p fighter.
I dont think it should be a title fight I dont think GSP and BJ should either but whatever. I just want to see how bad a these guys really are.

That is how B.J. Penn thinks. He doesn't dwell on wins and losses
If this was true, why does he call out the people he has lost to? For some reason, reading this really makes me want GSP to win more.

I always here this line that "A motivated determined BJ Penn can be the best fighter in the world". I think it's bull!

Wouldn't "The Best Fighter in The World" be consistently that way... without needing the excuse of, 'his mind wasn't there this time'.

I think when people compare BJ to Anderson, Fedor, or GSP it is a slap in the face of those guys. BJ has about 4 or 5 more impressive wins to gain before I think they should even consider putting him in their league.

Having said that, I would like to add that BJ is clearly a genius since he and he alone (I believe anyway) masterminded all this hype around himself.

I cannot wait for GSP to put him in his place. I really hope this fight ends within a minute... KO!

I really think anyone who would discredit BJ for losing to GSP is ignorant. Anyone who has competed in a sport like wrestling, judo, taekwondo, boxing etc. knows how hard it is to bump up a weight class.

For BJ to not get finished, or even put up a fight should make him look that much better. People keep saying, BJ walks around at this and that. Fact of the matter is, BJ fights at 155, GSP could not cut to 155.

Look at Hatton who bumped up to fight Mayweather, or when Trinidad tried to fight Bhop and RJJ. Or when De La Hoya tried to fight Bhop etc etc.

People just don't seem to understand how much of a difference 15lbs is. I wrestled all through highschool at 135 and I was 'okay'. On my team was the 125 state champ who absolutely thrashed everyone in his division. But when we would wrestle, I would pretty much toss him around. 1 weight class makes a HUGE difference. And anyone who is able to bump up a division and be competitive is amazing imho.

I think it's just hard for people who haven't competed in a similar sport to understand this. And honestly, the majority of MMA fans have not.

that's just not right. I hate BJ and I know that if it were to go to the ground he's got better Jitz.

Silva by TKO.

I'm pretty sure everyone already knows how I feel about this.
