Wow Rugby love found in a BJ thread. The message boards never cease to amaze.
I bet you two will make great looking little Rugby players together, best of luck. JK
Fav Fighters: Penn, Wand, Fedor, Genki, Shields, Rashad, Pulver, Diaz bros, Melendez.
I'm really looking forward to the BJ fight even though I will probably be disappointed with the result. If that fight was on the PPV then UFC 175 would be stacked!
BJ Penn hints at retirement even after a win on Sunday night: 'Isn't that the best way to leave?'
And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
Anyway, BJ I think has a really good chance if he can restrict Edgar's movement. Throw leg kicks, long hooks and head kicks to stop his lateral movement and keep him standing in front of him. Edgar likes to level change a lot so that's a natural fit for BJ's nasty uppercut. I'm interested if BJ can retain his power at the lighter weight class.
Edgar could use leg kicks himself especially if BJ comes out with his narrow stance. Outside low kick to buckle the lead leg all day. Body shots to soften up BJs midsection and test his cardio.
No way rugby fans on here! Ive met a grand total of zero fellow rugby fans outside of the die hards on the rugby team at my undergrad.
I was 100% trolling as League is widely considered to be tougher physically than Union. We had the League World Cup here last year and barely anyone noticed as it is a niche sport at best whereas Union is the 2nd or 3rd most popular sport in the UK. I'm not a big fan of either but will occasionally catch an England Union game.
Who does Edgar fight next? Although this weight class is much better for him I don't want to see him fight for the title again whilst Aldo is champion. I doubt he ever moves back up to LW unless he has to but I find his potential matches there a lot more interesting.
I'm unsure if anyone mentioned this, but I was shocked at seeing the betting odds for this fight. Frankie is a 10 to 1 favorite over Penn! I personally would've thought it would be a 2 (or 2.5) to 1 favorite
Frankie Edgar: -1050
BJ Penn: +550
Wow. That is absurd.
I can totally understand why an Englishman doesnt follow rugby/league i mean us Aussies smash you guys all the time i suppose you no longer follow cricket either since you guys were smashed in the ashes, i guess you'll always be better at soccer but, woops i mean football.
Sorry i couldn't help myself
