Sure i know he has good jitz. He caught Franklin in a dangerous armbar. But whats the point of having good jitz if youre too fat and lazy to use it properly?

Penn
Weakness: Cardio
Biggest Threat at the moment: Kenny Florian
GSP
Weakness: Chin?(I can understand someone saying standup, but he seems to be at least above average in that department.)
Biggest Threat at the moment: Thiago Alves
Anderson Silva
Weakness: Wrestling
Biggest Threat at the moment: God? There aren't too many great wrestlers that have better BJJ or striking than he does. Him subbing Henderson really makes me wonder if anyone stands a chance against him.
Forrest Griffin
Weakness: Power
Biggest Threat at the moment: Wanderlei Silva. I don't think Evans has the endurance to go 5 rounds with Forrest and I think Rampage is going to once again get KO'd. Silva has KILLER power and can probably go 5 rounds, with or without a snorkel.
Brock Lesnar
Weakness: BJJ
Biggest Threat at the moment: Big Nog. I see Nog beating Mir and then subbing Lesnar by the 2nd round. Mir will also beat Lesnar if he wins lol

*_*_*_*_*_UFC FANTASY TEAM*_*_*_*_*
Wanderlei Silva
Evan Tanner
Kenny Florian
Alan Belcher
Alessio Sakara

Here ya go, the first shot is block and the one following is the only one I can see being solid. After that most of them miss or graze his head.







FFL 3rd +90
Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
Demian Maia
Martin Kampmann
Nate Diaz

anderson silva's weakness is damien maia for sure...maybe palhares cuz he has awesome td's, but maia has the bjj ability of submit anderson once it hits the floor....your not going to 'outwork' anderson b/c he's too dangerous everywhere to be outworked, but a guy like maia is one of the few MW fighters who is better at one aspect of mma than anderson is...

The last two punches catch him, but its some poor ground n pound. And its pretty poor defense from Silva. When Silva had his arms outstretched, Lutter should have gone for an armbar. I dont think a bjj guru like Maia would pass up that sort of opportunity

Why do people rag on GSP's striking? He was originally a striker. Watch his fight against Hieron. Its good now and its always been.

his striking from the outside is excellent...when he can keep his distance and throw some leg kicks....it's when he's in the pocket where i think he's the weakest...he's not "bad", but it's the worst part of his game....especially when he misses a punch, he doesn't seem to have the motion down well enough to maintain proper composure to avoid getting hit himself.... here's an example:



he's kind of caught in an exchange and doesn't really know what to do so he just throws his hands out there...

now that was a while ago...but the a similar moment happened in the Fitch fight. 3rd round, after he landed the knee, headkick, knee combo...it happens just before he takes Fitch down....he starts throwing punches and just isn't fluid at all...his defense is virtually nonexistant....

to me, this is a big plus for Penn, because, if GSP decides to start exchanging hands....especially in say round 3ish (like the fitch fight), he will leave openings to land a bomb....Penn's economy of motion is excellent standing...no wasted movement at all...which allows him to catch fighters standing if they make even the slightest error....the drawback to having this style of striking is it leave Penn open for kicks...which GSP capitalized on in the first fight, and even Sherk landed some really hard kicks to Penn...and I saw the locker room footage of Penn after the Sherk fight and it looked like his leg was pretty badly bruised....

penn's hands are by no means godlike however...sherk hit him pretty damn hard about 1 minute into their fight...however, bj has a granite chin and i've never really seen him rocked ever in mma

let me just add that when analyzing a fight as complicated as this one...we can't simply say "gsp has better wrestling", "penn has better striking"....you need to look in depth at these aspects of mma to really get any kind of meaningful predictions
