I agree with most of you that Matt needs to work on his standup which has always been a thorn in his side. I like Matt but he proved to be a great champion by not tapping in that armbar or triangle. Skills and cardio don't do it alone. Heart, gentlemen! HEART! On that night Matt had it. I like Penn alot but the very thing that Matt said would beat Penn did. His confidence. Penn did not train for a 5 rounder because he thought he could beat Matt with the standup.
We all know that someone out there is going to take Matt out. When, Where, or Who? It's debatebul. GSP possibly, if he took in what he learned about Matt at this fight. Sanchez. This kid is not hyped up and he has a lot of heart. Penn could have at UFC 63, but I think he was looking past Matt. Diaz. This kid is hungry again.
Gentlemen this division and the lightweight division just may have the the most fireworks in the next few years.
