    Well Said.
    Im a big fan of GSP and I would rather not see him fight anymore. He's went out on top, he is still young and healthy and has all of his faculties. He took a shit kicking against JH and lost that fight, but was afforded the chance to retire on top and that's where he should stay. Be an ambassador, do some color for Francophone PPV's but please Georges stay out of the Octogon.

    slacking off in your training regimen is not giving it the best you can give.

    Frankie Edgar is the only reason B.J. Penn is fighting at 145 pounds
    http://www.mmafighting.com/2014/5/26...-at-145-pounds
    "If Dana had asked me to come to 145, and fight any other people, there's no way I would have done it," said Penn, who meets Edgar for the third time on July 6 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in The Ultimate Fighter's coaches fight.

    But as the future Hall of Famer's career winds down, his 2010 losses to Edgar; with Edgar winning the title in April and retaining in August, clearly still eats at him. Penn's two-year lightweight title reign was so dominant, that there was some discussion as to whether he belonged atop the pound-for-pound rankings before Edgar came along.

    "I had a good run going at 155," Penn said. "Frankie came in, and one thing about Frankie, he's one of the best in the UFC. Getting the opportunity to coach against him, I realized he's one of the most competitive people. He's not one of those ‘I'm mad at you now and I want to kick everybody's butt. He's just a really competitive person and I think that's going to help me. I've got a very familiar opponent standing on the other side."

    After Penn lost in a one-sided welterweight fight to Rory MacDonald in Dec. 2102, many speculated it was time for Penn to retire.

    Penn, for his part, won't commit to anything beyond the Edgar fight. But that won't stop him from discussing his legacy.

    "I want everyone to know that I always gave it the best shot I had, whether it went that way my night," Penn said. "Fighting is my whole life, the UFC is my whole life. Dana and the UFC gave me the opportunity and I always gave the best I could give."

    In no way can BJ be compared to Liddell. BJ has still never been knocked down, despite eating Roy Nelson levels of punishment his last two fights. Liddell was knocked out 4 of his last 5 fights, typically in horrific fashion.

    No shit, pretty sure the insult Coleman hurled was Deadwood-esque, calling Bisping "C-nt eye".

    Meltzer was there for it and talked about it on his radio show last week.

    Coleman also got into it a bit with Bisping at UFC 167 I believe, with Coleman saying something about Bisping's eye looking like a ______ and Bisping calling Coleman a washed-up juicer. Dunno if anybody has talked about it here, but the story is pretty funny.
