BJ displayed some of the best bjj ive ever seen against Hughes..You cant find a better grappling match in this division, than BJ vs Royce..BJ doesnt have the stregnth to simply over power royce like Matt did, so I think this would be a great fight..ill take BJ in a close one..PS ON THE OPTION WHERE IT SAYS ROYCE GRACIE OR MATT HUGHES, IF YOU WANT TO VOTE BJ VOTE HUGHES..I WROTE HUGES BY MISTAKE

I would probably go with BJ Penn for two reasons. First reason is obviously the age factor. I believe Royce is about 10 years older than Penn (correct me if im wrong).
Second reason is I would think Penn's standup game is better than Gracie's.

But I would be cheering for royce Gracie.

BJ's BJJ is better than Royce's...plus hes a better striker...only way that Royce wins the fight is if its one of those no-limit fights ala what he had when he fought Saku and outlast BJ...

If Royce was allowed groin shots or hair pulling I would go with him. If not BJ Penn all the way.

Well seeing BJs condition after 2 rounds of a fight, I think if anyone last 2 rounds with him they have a chance. It would be hard for BJ to submit Royce, after seeing Royce tough out Matts kimura and Royce has a good chin. So I think this would be a very interesting fight. I bet Penns a little to much for Royce nowadays tho as Hughes was.

Condition, condition, condition. Will people stop going on about condition in the Hughs/Penn fight. The guy injured his ribs and couldn't breath properly let alone fight.

I didnt know BJ injured his rib.
Asskicker, I am not having a go mate its just that all have read on this forum over the past 2 days is about BJ's fatigue and stamina running out. It must make sense to you now why he came out in the 3rd and wasn't up for it.

Ok I wasnt arguing at all. I was simply stating I was unaware that his rib was injured, and that Ill take that into account.
