Man I couldnt believe how easily GSP passed Penns guard, something that is supposed to be the best in mma, looked like he just started...

Yeah, I'm at a lost for words... On a good note how about that Jon Jones guy, only 21 and looks great, very exciting to watch.

got every fight pick right....i called gsp to win, and it was very fun to watch ***** bj get his rich lazy a$$ beat....gsp passed his guard like i'd pass an old man on the interstate....all the talk bj was doing was a joke and just made made me hate him more....i mean the lazy joker even bought a $500,000 bubble to sleep in, in hopes of not havin to work as hard to improve his cardio...pathetic

glad to see that hard work persevered

I called GSP, MAchida, and Guida, and even said that the diaz/guida fight could go either way. I think I officially pegged that event. Only fair since all my predictions from 93 were wrong.

Nothing wrong with BJ, GSP is simply too much physically for an undersized welterweight, end of story.

interesting development...GSP's corner got caught rubbing vaseline all over his back...which could've drastically effected BJ's jiu-jitsu...hard to say if it would've been different, probably not, but nobody will ever know.

At worst a cornerman is gonna get fined or suspended, it wont impact the decision. I personally don't think it would have made a difference either way, GSP is just to much physically, but there were times when BJ would effortlessly get a high guard or rubber guard and then his legs would slide down GSP's back. Also saw his hand slide off the back of GSP's head a lot when BJ was trying to control him in the guard. Most likely sweat, but unfortunately it gived ammo to BJ's whining fans.

I can't WAIT for GSP vs. Alves. That will be a battle. Also, when is Andersen Silva due to dismantle someone again? I love GSP, but Silva is still definitely the P4P best right now. And dear god please no one say that its fedor. Lucky knockout punch on a highly overrated fighter.

i don't see how you can say somebody who has never truly been beaten is over rated...Fedor is without a doubt the best Heaveyweight fighter in the world....and i think you could argue P4P also.

I was talking about Arlovski being overrated. Fedor is great, but come on, he's fought like 2 guys in the last 3 and a half years that I would consider real contenders at the time (Mark Hunt and Tim Sylvia).
