Talking him overtraining?

It was hard for Brandon to fight like that when right off the bat he got taken down and was easily fighting off a horrible choke from Gray. Grays constant takedowns and constant lay and pray was hard to deal with for him I imagine.

Yeah, he probably was making excuses, BJ is always making excuses, especially when he thought the first round of Corey/Emerson was a "TIE", haha, right, a TIE.

Gray got off light against Weems in the first round, I think it just showed that Gray relies strictly on wrestling, and if no one gives him a neck like Melendez did, he's going to get defeated by whoever he faces in the semis, whether it be Joe, Nate, Matt, or Manny. He's much like how Koscheck started, except atleast Koscheck gave Diego a fight on the show. He just doesn't have the skills yet.

He does rely alot on wrestling but I still think hes alot more well rounded than Koscheck was.

Melendez put on a great performance tonight, despite losing and all that crap before the fight. Putting that kind of a showing against the other teams "best" guy is a hard thing to do.

Without a doubt, he was definitely impressive and surprised me tonight. I personally don't find Gray to be that great, but I thought he'd stomp Melendez.

Agreed. I didn't expect a whole lot from Melendez but he suprised me (Although I think he should of tried harder to get out of the gulloutine). Gray on the other hand looked like he was overworking some chokes, like he thought he had his arm around his neck or something. Should of threw more punches while he was on Melendez' back and then go for the choke. Could of ended much sooner I thought.

I was impressed with Brandon also. I didn't think he had a ground game at all but his jitz is ok. (not great but ok) I thought Gray would do more but in my opinion he was just layin and prayin, throwin a couple of shots here and there. I think when and if Gray gets in the cage with someone that has strong BJJ skills, he's in trouble!

you know what im not a doctor so i cant say how bad his hand hurts....but the jens speach seemed very from the heart....now im a bj fan obviously.....but jens does seem to put more into coaching a personal level.....although i think bj can teach the kids more then pulver can......i guess we'll see who is the better fighter very soon

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.
