There was nothing interesting about Royce vs Ken 2. Absolutely nothing....well, Royce getting his eye blown up was sort of interesting.

Vernon White was also in some really good fights(vs Horn(KOTC), vs Ian Freeman(UFC 43), vs Saku(Pride 2), and vs Liddell(UFC 49)).

But you guys always give fighters crap about lay and pray wins, and this fight is never mentioned as one and I dont know why.
iv liked gsp since day one and i agree with u about the lay and pray but it the ufc rules if it was in pride bj would hav one.

At the time Ken Shamrock was supposed to be this machine, as was Royce, and me and my dad were shocked with Ken using those tactics and it was interesting that he would chose to lay there and not fight.

Did I say all of Vernons fights were rubbish? No. All I said was I don't care for him much and that a majority of his fights aren't great.

Why are we argueing over this anyways? People have different opinions and tastes and if I said I liked the fight, then so be it.

So BJ's eye pokes aren't going to be taken in consideration?
If someone pokes me in the eye i would want to take him down to the ground and avoid getting hit in the face with punches i can't see.

GSP>BJ Penn

Koscheck has finished 5 of his 8 wins, and had good fights with Luke Cummo and Jeff Joslin even though they went to decision.

BJ is a good fighter, But he cant stand in there with the current Welter Weight champ or even the Lightweight(Yes i think Sean Sherk will destroy BJ) you probably wont even see BJ in the UFC if he doesnt win his next fight cuz if he doesnt that is 3 losses in a row

Now if you want to talk about something worthwhile like what will happen in a rematch then I'm game.

GSP will win in a rematch with BJ Penn...it will be quick and decisive and that's just the way it is.
Obviously slick, you didnt read my post. I clearly stated that GSP won the fight. And no Im not a BJ nuthugger. And I agree that GSP would win a rematch. Nice flame attempt though
