Do you guys realize that Penn was dominating hughes and it is very likely the only reason he didn't continue that dominance was because of an injury? Everyone gets that If the injury didn't occur, hughes would probably have lost 2nd round. But what people dont' get, is that its very possible that BJ trained well enough so that he would have continued to dominate 3,4, and maybe all 5 rounds of that fight if it went to decision.
BJ Penn is a natural talent and has had some rough luck; if he just comes back with what he already brought vs hughes; I find it unlikely for anyone besides GSP or a completely matured Sanchez(under fedor's training) to compete with him. To be honest I think the only man as skilled and smart as penn is Fedor himself.
yep, what he saidnotoriousviv said:I can't see this fight happening. It makes no sense from a business perspective for the UFC. If Diego wins, he becomes the next contender for the belt, which he would be regardless. If BJ wins, he remains #3 in the division and I don't think there's much interest in seeing BJ vs Hughes or GSP so soon after losing to both of them. At the same time they lose Diego as a legitimate contender in the near future, which they sorely need. Seems like there's nothing to gain and everything to lose.
