Yea Penn sucks so bad he got a draw against the number 2 welterweight in the world not to mention a fighter who hasnt lost since 2008 and dominated every fighter he has faced since then his last loss against GSP the champion, and Penn put the best fight up and the guy is a natural LW.

Not to burst your bubble but if you think Edgar would do any better you are delusional, Penn was the victim of bad judging in fight one and lost fair in fight 2 , i cant wait until Penn goes back to LW and slaps some fools.

Also go look up what Gameplan means.

I don't think I can even try and decipher that first paragraph.

As for the second part, did that fight prove to you that he can fight for 25 minutes, because that has been BJ's weakness since 2002.

I don't think Penn sucks, love to watch him fight but I don't believe he's fixed his issues with winning decisions.

He still out boxed Frankie in the first fight, I must have watched that fight around five times. It was close, but BJ definitely outboxed him.

In a 3rd fight, the BJ that fought Fitch would destroy Edgar. That's my (slightly biased I admit) opinion.

He got beat by Edgar, twice. Edgar is a better fighter than BJ Penn.

Just wanted to make sure everyone is aware of reality here.
Disagree.

The BJ that showed up in the Edgar fights, the GSP fight, and the first Pulver fight was actually Andy Wang after a thanksgiving buffet. If you look closely you can see his eyes look slightly smaller than usual in those fights.

I think if the BJ that showed up against Shogun wearing the Jon Jones bodysuit and facemask shows up against Edgar, he would DESTROY Edgar.
