Freddie Roach: "BJ Penn is by far the best striker in MMA."

This is coming from someone who's a boxing training legend. I know he's worked with Oscar De La Hoya and Manny Paquiao among others and has worked extensively with Andrei Arlovski and Anderson Silva in MMA.

Roach also says that if BJ and GSP get into a striking match BJ wins the fight.

I think everyone always knew that BJ would win a stand up fight

obviously Freddie is going to say that a guy with really good boxing is the best striker in MMA and not a muay thai guy....i think he's a little biased

BJ's boxing is pretty amazing, but that's one part of striking in MMA. Anderson Silva takes the cake.

Boxing is only one face of the stand up game when it comes to MMA, bein a great boxer wont help ya much when ya come up against a kickboxer/muay thai specialist.

he probably means basic technique's such as the jab (we know roach loves the jab and bj has a good one) and combinations, but in certain punches silva and arlovski are better

I think Roach doesn't know what he's talking about however he does train with Anderson and Arlovski so that is impressive praise.

I have to say I have really come to appreciate BJ Penn's hands. When i first started watching him I thought ok this guy has amazing BJJ but looks out of shape and is probably a mediocre fighter but his hands are heavy and hit hard!!
