GIVE B.J. PENN HIS CREDIT he is the more talented fighter, and thats why he won Hughes couldnt of beaten BJ Penn on that night underestimated him or not, the better man won regardless.. and tonight the better man should win again which is BJ Penn it is a fight that HE SHOULD WIN but can lose.. we'll see what happens but damn give Penn some fuckin credit in that first fight.
Which brings me to another topic, everytime theres a rematch why do fans of a certain fighter have to say a fighters improved and thats why they'll win the rematch? I dont understand this logic you cant just say a fighters improved and he'll win without any proof and you cant just assume that the other fighter didnt improve why does that logic even work? ill use Hughes/Penn as an example
I got people telling me that Hughes submission defense and fighting tatics have improved from the first fight WHERE IS THE PROOF? and why would this make a difference? Ok his submission defense has improved so this means that a Top 3 JJ fighter in MMA wont submit him? overall, its gettin annoying that fans of a certain fighter love to make up BS about that fighter just so they can say that he'll win the fight.. I honestly think its one of the biggest cons among MMA fans and thats one of the biggest drawbacks of MMA being a mixed sport.
so who's your pick. Swick and Hughes SMH
this is yours from yesterday.
