On him quitting. Your in the cage you don't have a answer for whats coming you've taken damage. So to concede in honorable fashion refrain from more abuse totals to the body for no gain isn't to crazy in the long run. They game planned BJ perfectly pumped his arms up to slow him down put anough abuse on him were he would know he didn't have the power to knock GSP out. Plus BJ new he wasn't going to out wrestle GSP with his low risk smothering style.
I'm not saying I'm a fan of it, but understand why. As the saying went retreat today to win the war another day as it's only a battle today.
OK, this is about Rory and BJ, right? How long ago was BJ and GSP?
We all know that BJ gets motivated like crazy for at least one fight. He hasn't fought in a while and I expect to see a great BJ in this fight win or lose. The question is, will he continue to be motivated? He has seemed to have no issues being motivated for that initial fight, but then it seems to fade.
I am a huge BJ fan and I would love nothing more than to see him come in and beat Rory. BUT....I think that is all useless if he fades back to that laziness that seems to come about after that first dominating win. Time will tell....
Favorite UFC Fighters:
HW-Cigano, Frank Mir, Cain Valasquez
LHW-Machida, Franklin, Jon Jones
MW-Maia, Gouveia, Anderson
WW-GSP, Hazelett ,Diaz
LW-BJ Penn, Huerta, Lauzon
Only guarantee I can make about this fight is that it's going to be a fucking war
I am leaning towards Rory, but only slightly at this point
As motivated as BJ seems to be for this fight, I am more than sure that Rory is just as much. Beating BJ Penn in am entertaining fight on FOX would be absolutely MASSIVE for his career. So as amped as BJ is to beat Rory, the same enthusiasm is coming right back at him
Though I dislike BJ's disparaging and unfounded claims over GSP's PED use, the claim of him greasing during that fight is as true as Anderson's cheating ways in regards to the vaseline.

However those who are saying BJ quit are crazy. BJ didn't quit, his brother did. His family member was so afraid of what GSP was going to do to Penn that he stopped the fight. Penn being the warrior that he is would have gone out for the fifth, most likely would have been finished by TKO, might have survived the fifth round, maybe even caught GSP with something and won. He would not however quit.
Hating on Anderson Silva before it was the cool thing to do.
The idea of a "true number one contender" is the stupidiest MMA idea to be perpetuated by fans and media, EVER.
HATES the new MMANEWS forum. Bring back the dark background.
