Diego is a conditioning machine and will come straight at BJ, making it a very entertaining fight to watch. I just do not think he can beat BJ, BJ should have a stand up advantage and a definitive bjj advantage. Good to see Penn wanting to fight again real quick

Was I the only one not that impressed with Bj in the Florian fight? I mean, he defended Kenny's TD, and beat him up inside the clinch... duh? Bj won easily, I agree, but that fight didn't show anything new and spectacular from Bj to me, it just showed that KenFlo is an idiot and had a bad game plan.




What a stud

I said in one of the other threads that I was a little puzzled by how much love BJ was getting after the Florian fight. Kenny gave him more trouble than I thought he would, the first 3 rounds were close enough that Florian could have won them with one flurry or take down at the end. If he had done to him in the first what he did in the 4th I would have been impressed but I've seen many performances more dominant than that.

Look at BJ's face at the end of round 3 when you watch the fight and tell me that isn't someone who looks frustrated.

nope. you weren't the only one.
i didn't see anything spectacular from bj too. he defended realy good against kenny's takedown attempts and he had the better standup,but not in a dominant manner.
the fight against diefo is gonna be amazing. sanchez is a complete athlete. great conditioning. if he will be patient he can tire bj. also sanchez is stronger than kenny and he can have more succes on his takedown attempts.

i can't wait for this fight.
penn also has to focus on the lw division, he still has some challenges ahead of him: edgar or maynard.
he also needs to let go of chasing after GSP. gsp would murder him again.

BELIEVE!

Wow that would be pretty amazing to see BJ back in the octagon in a couple of months.

BJ says he wants to stay in shape all year round, I want to believe him -- we'll just have to see.

I see where you are coming from but in fairness I think kenny made it nearly impossible for BJ to be impressive by running him into the fence all fight. It was more like kenny was trying to stop BJ from fighting instead of trying to fight BJ. Nevertheless despite Kennys neutralising tactics, BJ continued to blast away from the inside and wherever the opportunity presented itself BJ would show some nice controlled aggression and try to finish the fight. Its quite similar to how Leites made Anderson look unimpressive, I dont think that was Anderson's fault and I dont think it was BJs fault that kenny came in with that mentality either.

I hear you on this post, as well as the one you quoted. BJ didn't seem to do anything THAT spectacular, but like has been mentioned Kenny didn't really let him and he didn't need to. I was extremely impressed with his cardio too. Listening to Rogan talk about how his mouth was open, how he looked fatigued, and how he might have over-trained was getting rather obnoxious.

I was mostly impressed with the way BJ fought. He wasn't throwing everything he had into every punch. He saw that Kenny wasn't trying to really fight, and was just trying to wear him down. He out-waited Kenny and broke him. BJ is nearly impossible to beat when he does this. Outbox a guy that isn't willing to utilize his striking effectively, and eventually, you'll either land something significant or you'll get the guy to the ground; and BJ on top is lights out for almost any opponent.

Touching on the thread, I don't really see Sanchez having much of a chance. Not so much that I don't think he matches up with BJ, I just don't think the same Sanchez that showed up to fight Guida will show up to fight BJ. BJ is the "master" of 155, a legend, and one of the most respected fighters in the game. I will be utterly shocked if Diego storms out of the blocks and rushes Penn.
