I'm all aboard. BJ has always been one of my fav fighters. I have even more respect for him after reading his book, he doesn't avoid talking about his loses and is even the first to admit that even the injury loss to Matt Hueghs was his own fault and he should have come in better shape. He has been talking some trash about sherk lately but in general i think he's a pretty stand up guy and always shows respect for his opponents. He even burried the hatchet it seemed with pulver after their fight.

i completely agree here. He always accepts blame and always shows respect. I think this whole deal with Sherk is just to sell tickets. I guarantee after the fight that they will hug and BJ will give him respect in win or loss. Maybe he wil kiss him too.

Lately i'm starting to think Dana is putting fighters up to this whole "bad blood thing" there seems to be more shit talking than usual. Who knows though i'm pretty sure even if BJ loses he'll admit sherk was the better man that night. I also admire that he was willing to share so much of his MMA knowledge in a book, now i do realize he makes money off of it but thats something i'd almost expect from him when he was retired.

Yeah I kind of relate it to poker pros coming out with their books. I guess if you can get your opponents thinking the same way you do though it is a huge advantage. Especially since all you have to do is change up your thought process and you know what they think you are going to be trying to do. When you come out with something different that just throws them off. A guy with BJ's talent could thrive after revealing his knowledge like that.

I'm glad this thread got started. BJ is one of the most exciting fighters out there. He never is afraid to speak his mind. I dont consider it smack talk when he can back up what he says. "Sean Sherk you're dead!" hahahaha

WAR PENN!!!

I'm definitely fully on board.

Am I the only one that thinks BJ can win a decision over Sherk?

I said this in a previous post but even an out of shape BJ Penn can outclass someone with his pure skill and win the first 2 rounds. If BJ's in shape he could easily take rounds 1, 2, and 3.

Even if BJ gasses at the end of round 2...If Sherk is going to institute his LnP strategy that he typically uses against BJJ fighters and controls but doesn't do much if any damage from the top (which is HIGHLY likely), then BJ might be able to steal on the last 3 rounds with one or two deep submission attempts, even if he doesn't finish the fight.

Either way there's your 3 rounds to 2 UD for Penn. I just had to bring up those very likely scenarios because I'm tired of reading about how "if the fight goes into the 4th and 5th then guaranteed Sherk will win." I don't agree.

Also I think if any of the rounds are really close to score, I don't think the Athletic Commission appointed judges are going to lean the way of a guy fresh off of a positive test. JMO.
