I don't doubt that he had a sinus infection, but for god's sake that is not why he lost. BJ Penn did not look the way he did because of a damn running and stuffy nose and a headache. Give me a break.

It was a combination of bad gameplanning and, in my opinion, overlooking Edgar. I think Penn won the fight, but he didn't take it seriously and he got burnt by the judges. It's his own fault.

Not because of a damn stuffy nose. Jesus.

Well the majority of people aren't judges. The majority of people who scored it for Penn are huge Penn fans already. Your point is invalid. Anyway, the majority of people didn't socre it for BJ. It was more like 60% Edgar 40% Penn.

And really?? A sinus infection as an excuse? Penn lost because of a stuffed up nose? That's just grasping at straws for an excuse.

I thought he was very well spoken, but I really do hate excuses. I thought by his video after the fight he was going to just congratulate frankie and come back and fight again. C'mon BJ

Penn is my favorite fighter and I was gutted when he lost but he should keep the excuses to himself and beatdown whoever he fights next.

You don't know anything about what a sinus infection is, do you?

http://www.emedicinehealth.com/sinus...n/page3_em.htm

Fever, headache, pain in the face, sore throat (depending on the type of sinus infection), some sinus infections even make you have double vision.

The last time you had a fever, headache, with nasal problems, sitting in bed with a blanket after coming back from the doctor, think about that state, only inside of an octagon figthing a top contender.

As for this being an excuse, if Penn or his camp had thought it was going to really hurt his fight, they should have called the fight off. It's their fault and their fault only, and Frankie did what he needed to do to win, and that's the bottom line.

Arguing about how bad or how mild Penn's "sinus infection" is pointless. Neither of us know but that is a very lame excuse IMO. Any excuse after you lose is moot point. You lost, you don't need to say anything. Let your fighting do the talking for you and save your dignity.

How is having a sinus infection a lame excuse? Have you ever had a sinus infection, tell me? Even mild sinus infections normally cause a fever, headache, and pain. I'm going to assume you have never had one, otherwise you would know exactly how bad a sinus infection actually is. In fact, a good case of sinus infection is worse than any flu you will ever get.

My point is, you assuming that it is a mild infection is based only on your opinion that you know absolutely nothing about, and for all you know, it had a major, major impact on his fight. Why call it "lame" and "moot" and "loss of dignity"? Hell, it wasn't even BJ that said he was sick, he hasn't said anything on it. BJ didn't make any excuse or say anything about it.

If BJ had a sinus infection, then it is his fault, and his camps fault, for not calling the fight off. Frankie did what he needed to do, won the fight, beat Penn, regardless of the reason why he beat him, but to say a sinus infection is a "lame" excuse is a "lame" thing to say, considering it seems you have never even had one, thus not knowing exactly how bad it actually is.

First off, not a Penn fan in the slightest, but have a sinus infection at the moment. They are not fun and I could see it very much affecting a fighter. headache's, fever, constant fatigue. I wish Penn would have one every fight!! lol

I can definitely see the sinus infection affecting BJ in the fight because he looked sluggish at times. IMO, he has never looked that sluggish at 155, but his camp shouldn't bring this up after the fight, it's a moot point now.
