I am so excited for this fight, and cannot decide who I think will win. Both are better than they were when they first met

I'm Canadian but I can't see GSP winning over someone like BJ Penn.
If Penn's mental and physical conditioning is done right, that guy's invincible.

Well, he has already beaten him once, but I see your point. Just needed to throw that out there.

I think if you pick an underdog you have to say its Penn. I hope its a war! I think physically GSP might be too much for him but make no mistake Penn is a bangah!

Penn might physically be smaller but I don't think there's any sizeable gap in the power department. GSP's hand speed is faster but Penn throws more bombs for sure.
If BJ works on his takedown defense, it's going to be an awesome, awesome war. If he gets taken down by GSP's superior wrestling and ends up in the bottom; I don't see much chance of him getting out...BJJ black belt or not. I can almost see the quick TKO/ref stoppage.
But..Fighters also always underestimate Penn's striking that's why they get KO'd. With BJ's power, GSP is going to be stunned by any bomb that connects. And we all know what happens when GSP gets stunned...

I got GSP winning it. Granted I cannot stand BJ Penn, but I think GSP is too explosive at 170 for BJ. I don't think GSP can KO BJ though, I don't think BJ can be KO'd. However I can see something similar to Hughes vs Penn where GSP gets on top of BJ into a strong position and beats him until the ref stops in via TKO. Either that or a decision going to GSP. I believe GSP's cardio will be much better than BJ.

good points by both of you (ninja/flobot) i wonder what the betting odds will be/favorite on the day

Seriously though, BJ had GSP damaged in their first fight but never really stunned. I do not foresee that outcome. In terms of "we all know what happens when GSP gets stunned", I am not so sure. The Serra incident was unfortunate but, going back all the way to his TKO/UCC days, St.Pierre has never had a weak chin. There is really no evidence to suggest that other than that one fight, so, the BJ KO is not really a point of interest for me.

I'm really looking forward to this one.....but first UFC 92 is gonna be awesome!!

The way BJ dominated the first round in their first fight is why I choose BJ over GSP. BJ's not gonna be making the same mistake of slacking off/gassing after the first round. If he trains to his peak in this bout, I'm sure he'll win.
IMHO, GSP is constantly great. He is always improving in tiny increments every fight and has the heart of a champion. If it was a line graph, I'd put BJ's line underneath him. However, I truly believe that BJ has so much more potential than GSP at both their peaks. (Ie. GSPs line would be a gradual hill while BJ can suddenly peak Above and Beyond GSP; as I said with the right training and mindset.)

It similar to having two students in this same class: One an incredibly hard worker (GSP) and one an incredibly blessed natural genius (BJ). The natural genius may never appear in lecture, never read his course material, and never seek assistance, yet consistently get an 85 with ease. The hard worker, however, must strive for each of his grades, consistently push and devote himself to his craft, and as a result will consistently get a 90. Now, if the natural genius applied himself, he would easily best the hard worker based solely on his intellect - however, that is a massive if.
BJ has always been a natural fighter, inherently skilled at MMA; however, that has also been one of his largest detriments. He has always had the mindset, "Why train for that extra 5% when I am 85% with absolutely no effort?" I think GSP is that much faster, that much stronger and that much more dedicated that he will overcome BJ's inherently greater skill set. I simply do not believe BJ Penn will ever have the constitution to dedicate himself enough to be consistently better than GSP - the fight will be razor close, but BJ will not win.
