Simple thread. I'm curious to see what everyone thinks.

I think he will but not at will or when BJ gasses, he'll have a tough time, but GSP is a different type of animal when it comes to wrestling

I voted "only after Penn gasses". Simply because it's the best that fit.

GSP's not going to have and easy time taking Penn down. GSP's def gonna have to work for it. Though.. he won't have to wait for Penn to "gas" to be able to get him down.

I will probably be one of the very few that thinks GSP will take BJ down at will. It will be keeping him there that I dont see happening until he gasses. GSP will have the power, size, and explosive abilities to shoot and drive him to the ground but BJ is so dang good and squirming and getting back up.

GSP is just too big, too strong, and too explosive. I Don't think that he will be able to put BJ down at will, but there is no way that BJ is able to stay off his back this entire fight.

Bottom line is GSP's gonna get some takedown the key for Bj will be to limit them. Once GSP does get them though Bj will need to threaten with a lot of sub attempts to maybe make GSP think twice.

I really See GSP Just coming in with a great gameplan. Mixing things up alot and keeping BJ on his toes and out of rhythum much like he did vs serra ( i'm not comparing Serra to Penn by any means i'm just saying that GSP will come out with a similar gameplan).

You need a "frequently but not at will option". But yeah, I think he will be able to quite a bit.

Kind of a restricting number of options.

I voted "whenever he wants" because I don't think BJ's going to gas, but on that same token, I don't think he'll get him down every time.

I'd say "most of the time" he'll be able to get the fight there. The real question though, is will he be able to keep BJ there, avoid submissions, and deal damage?

Whenever he wants, he's too explosive.

Though if im proven wrong ill give massive respect to BJ
