    Neither can I. One thing that is building anticipation for me is the mutual respect these two have for each other. The fight is so big they don't even need to trash-talk.

  8. 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.

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

    BJ has already started talking trash and has played the steroid card again. This is why I will enjoy watching him lose. Hes a great fighter, but GSP has advanced far more than Penn since their last bout.

    Agreed,if gsp comes into this fight hungry and focused the only way penn can beat him is catch him with a lucky punch.i predict gsp giving an asswhoopin!

  12. physically gsp has a big advantage here.

    BJ is my boy, but I think GSP has advanced further along. I hope BJ wins, but I'm guessing GSP. However, I wouldn't go as far as "asswhoopin."

  15. Yeah I don't think either fighter can get their ass "whooped." Unless of course BJ lands a lucky bomb ala Matt Serra. I've never seen Penn KO'd either.

  16. 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!

  17. 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...

  18. 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.

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

    You know they have fought before, right?

    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.
