Sorry my bad. Penn is no joke, a hell of a fighter. If Penn wouldn't rely solely on his natural talent and train properly and be focused, then he will be a posing a real threat to a major fighter like GSP and could then clinch a belt again.

I've said this once, I'll say it again ... I am a Huge GSP fan and what he did was amazing, showing not only physical skill but mental toughness as well. BJ Penn is also a phenomenal fighter and much better than Hughes who got lucky with BJ's injury. Before Saturday night, I would have ranked Hughes the 3rd or 4th best welterweight (an argument could be made Diego is 3rd). Anyway, BJ could beat GSP on a good night although overall I give the edge to GSP who is on a meteoric rise. Diego could surprise people but I still give the edge to GSP ... but no one can say GSP is untouchable at this point, this isn't the middleweight division with no competition for Anderson Silva .. ww division is the deepest and best division and is WORLD CLASS

Exactly. I wouldn't be surprised if Diego beat Hughes, and I think if he fought GSP or Penn it would be closer than a lot might think. And you got Fitch, Parisyan, Diaz is getting better, Kos, and oh yeah, MATT SERRA

I would never compare the BJ Penn fight against Matt Hughes as a real comparison, he had what a MIXIMUM of 6 weeks notice, hell i couldnt improve 40% in that time and im a fat bastard.

Personally i think fully trained and fit BJ would have won. Amd if BJ fought for money and wasnt a little rich kid he'd be awsome

"I'm not impressed with your performance"

seriously bro, GSP is a master at the mental as well as physical game. He has so many ways to throw off an opponents rythem and timing. I know he appologized to hughes about saying he wasnt impressed with hughe's last fight, but im sorry, after watching gsp pick apart hughes, maybe he was just telling the truth, He honsetly just wasnt impresed with his performance cuz hes that much better of a fighter. Still props to hughes, great champ...

BJ Penn was set to fight that month anyways so he was training for a fight the opponent just changed. He had plenty of time to train, however in his own words he didn't train much because he didnt want to get burned out. He didnt want to get sparring syndrome so he didnt train as hard and he payed for it dearly in the third round.

I'm a Hughes fan, not his attitude but I have respect for what he's done in the WW division. I admit that Penn was handing his butt to him and most likely would've won if he was in better shape.

GSP is an extremely talented fighter and the future of MMA but I would'nt count Matt Hughes out, what he lacks in well roundedness he makes up for in experience. GSP knows that he needs to be on his toes for Matt Hughes cause he can and will exploit any mistakes that GSP makes. I guarantee Matt Hughes wont fight GSP the same way as he did, which was being cocky and trying to make a statement about his stand up. GSP will straight up destroy Hughes in a stand up bout. On the ground however its any mans game and Hughes is the better of the two on the ground.
