    Here's my take on this one. This fight comes down to BJ's gas tank. Rory isn't going to outclass BJ in anything other than cardio. BJ can stop Rory in round 1 if things go his way. Rory isn't going to stop BJ until round 3, and that's only if BJ isn't able to maintain his technique due to running out of energy.

    I know I know, call me captain obvious. Personal note, I love watching both of these guys compete. BJ is one of my top 3 all-time favorites. He's the epitome of a warrior, a true samurai spirit. Rory, well, if he keeps it up I'll be able to say the same things about him 5-10 years from now.

    This is stuipid on Rorys part best way to fight BJ is give him praise and speak highly of him, and BJ will make it easier for him from lack of trainning.

    Words a week and a half out will not increase BJ's cardio. Perhaps his mentality going into the fight, yes, but not his shape.

    I don't think Rory is scared of BJ Penn going to the death.

    Yeah, that cracked me up. I think Rory has a great chance to win, but I'll be absolutely stunned if he spends anytime actually standing with BJ, and isn't trying to grind him with the clinch or press him on the cage.

    I think it's far more likely that he'll try to employ the same strategy that St. Pierre employed: spend the first round using a size advantage and desperately trying to get him down, work the blood out of his shoulders, attack the thoracic cavity.

    I see what you did there lol.

    OT: Rory is really starting to buy his own hype. Coming in overconfident will be a huge mistake. Hope he gets embarrassed but I doubt it.

    You can't tell from how he dresses. He looks like a hipster from Vancouver.

    I mean.... horn-rimmed glasses? What are you thinking?
