He lost to both, so his opinion on the fight would be interesting.

Hmmm...didn't catch that. Hopefully Joe could still be objective about it.

Well...there can be a lot of debate about both fights. Joe got cut early vs Penn, which most likely irrevocably changed the outcome of the fight. I need to watch it again, but I felt it was one of those times when everything that could go wrong for a fighter did. I have no doubt that Penn would have won the fight without the cut, I just wish the cut wasn't so severe that early. There is no guarantee that if they fought again that Penn would administer such a bloody beating again. Still, I would like to hear a comparison from his mouth. Is it safe to assume (with out looking up your posts on the subject) that you feel BJ will win? Your rather selective images suggest so - I seem to remember Diego hitting Joe, too.

Yeah I think BJ takes a UD. What about yourself?

Hm that's the first UD I've heard called. I like most people, expect a 4th round TKO or submission from Penn after Diego realizes he's outclassed and starts to give up a little.

I'd have to agree. I think BJ's far superior skills will negate whatever conditioning Diego has. If Diego can take it past 3 rounds without sustaining any severe damage, then it could get interesting, but only if he has made BJ work unnecessarily hard. Should be a great fight either way.

He could definitely finish him but Diego is a tough MFer.
