Haha, I personally loved that. Had me rolling quite a bit, especially the hiring the man part, classic.
I too, was a big fan of BJ's. I've been a bigger fan of GSP tho for sometime now. I also respect GSP more, why? Because of him as a person. BJ has proved nothing more than that he is a crybaby who talked all that smack, then got dominated. Instead of admitting his wrongs he went and looked for a reason to complain. BJ is a lost cause in my eyes.
Oh, and, I have been told it's wrong of me to judge my favorite fighters based on them as a person. I don't judge solely on personality, but if a fighter is great, but disrespectful, I'm not a fan. Throw stones all you want.
ohhhhhh great, this fight could get greasier then KFC chicken.
I agree with both of you - what we see on TV is most likely not truly who any of these guys are. On the other hand I do think after reading enough interviews and getting enough coverage on someone you do get a general sense of a guys personality.
In my opinion, it is also impossible to not identify with fighters personally on some level (illogical, yes) and cheer for them. We all cheer for high level skillset, but we also root for personalities. It is nothing but entertainment after all...
As where if you are an MMA fan from Hawaii you almost have to be a Penn fan or risk getting jumped by anyone who knows you aren't a Penn fan.
I don't think this is the case for every fighter, but it is for this situation imo...
I am a fan of both, though I do like Penn more just because I like his style of fighting more, I've been a fan of him longer, and because he is willing to fight anyone regarless of how big or dangerous they are.
Penn isn't doing anything differently than he always has...if someone suddenly is hating on him or disrespecting him now...good luck on the new bandwagon, and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.
