    Man, bj penn has the worst gameplans ever. I know he has the ability to pop up out of that butterfly guard.. maybe after taking 20 elbows, he should have decided that it was time to switch it up and pop back to his feet. This is pretty disappointing.

    That was frankie basically hitting a heavybag. I had edgar all the way but expected a much better fight out of Penn.

    BJ had nothing for him.. horrible performance, I had Frankie but atleast thought it would be competitive and a good fight. BJ looked awkward as shit and seemed off, maybe even stoned. he sure as shit had zero aggression or interest in being there.

    WTF did i just watch. Wow I did not expect that I loved watching Penn fight over the years, but i can't watch that again. He either over trained, over thought it, changed to much of his game, IDK. That was fucking terrible to watch. That was worse than the time he gassed against Hughes and got caught in the Crucifix.

    I'm curious as to what his gameplan was and how he thought it would play out. Though it only happened once, Penn was wide open for those leg kicks that Edgar hit him with in the past two fights. And just like the past fights, Edgar was able to get his combos in and get out before Penn's counterpunch (which was much much slower).

    Did BJ even land 10 clean shots on Edgar?

    thanks for the memories BJ, great career. That's exactly the way I hate seeing guys go out, on a bad note instead of good terms.

    Truck is just too tough. What a great week or so for Serra Longo guys first Villante, then Weidman and now Gordon! We're taking over the world!

    no argument there, helluva performance from the NYC/New Jersey crew all weekend. Dhiego is leaps and bounds better than what just showed tho. He'll look much better when he comes back at WW which is his natural weight, think he was at MW just to be different than his brother.

    True and Gordon just recently came down from 205 so that is a big size advantage. I've been following Gordon for years as he was one of the first fighters to go to this fight shop that opened right by my school my like sophomore year of college. Then a bunch of other pros came through including Weidman but Gordon was the first. He is the real deal.

    Him and Aljamain Sterling(who finished second at my weight class in high school for wrestling) started the "blacktalians" I believe which is poking fun at Blackzilians and I found that funny.

    Sounds like the Penn fight went down exactly as I expected it would. Shame, I was hoping it would surprise me.
