You realize Fightmetric--along with the rest of the intelligent universe--actually had Penn winning the first fight, right?rh
Name ONE other fighter after GSP that took BJ Penn down
. Go ahead I'll wait for you to dance around the question and not answer it.
You love doing that.
Anywho, the answer is no one. Exactly what I wrote.
I can't see how anyone who isn't a Penn hater felt the second fight was a domination. It was a clear win on points, absolutely. But it wasn't as though Edgar was ever at a point where he was close to finishing, or ever scoring a 10-8, or anything like that.
Again, Name me ONE fighter on this planet who took BJ down and won a "convincing decision" not named GSP.
THERE IS NONE!
Kenny Florian/Matt Hughes or Diego? Ah No.
Did Diaz take Bj Penn down and beat him up on the ground FTW? No
Now Jon Fitch certaintly tried, and came close. But fact is he didnt win.
ONLY Edgar and GSP have beat Bj Penn(like that) in recent history. True talk
, now get over it.
Bearing in mind that you've established a context that Penn was dominated by Edgar, you go on to talk about Penn's failure to sink any subs or land any big shots after his TDs, illustrating that Penn was far from "owning" Edgar as a result. But wouldn't the reverse have to be true as well? How many subs did Edgar land? How many did he even attempt? did he ever have Penn in danger, or did he win on points?
The comment I was replying to was "Bj Penn would've owned Edgar IF he took him down".
I was just stating a fact that Bj Penn DID take him down, Twice, and did NOTHING.
I never once said "Edgar did a helluva lot of damage and came close to finishing". I said no one has beat Penn like that since GSP
, which is true.
If Im mistaken please correct me. But please try to stay on topic.
I like Frankie. He seems like a swell guy, and I hope he destroys the world at FW. But he's done nothing in the last 5 years to have his name be used in the same sentence as "dominant."
Ok, GSP dominated him. And Frankie beat him. Still doesnt change the fact that Penn's two worst losses in the last 5 years is GSP 2 and Edgar 2.
And it STILL doesnt change the fact that Bj Penn had Frankie on his back two different occasions and did nothing. (Original Topic)
And STILL(lol) doesnt change the fact that "If he took him down and wasnt so stubborn" is a WEAKASS excuse.
So please. If you're going to start out a post with "that's one of the stupidest things I've ever heard" don't put stupid shit in your post. If you're going to stand on facts, please make sure you have them correct.
I replied to "Bj Penn would Own Edgar IF he only took him down". I then posted real facts that disproved that claim. Ex: 2 TD Landed for Penn. 5 strikes landed between both. Nothing else.
Doesnt THAT^^disprove this sentence >--->"Bj Penn would Own Edgar IF he only took him down".
I dont get how you cant see that.
