BJ Penn vs GSP-The rematch
I'm new to this site and just began weightlifting so ive got a bunch of questions on that stuff but thankfully I do know my MMA I dont know about you guys but im extremely excited for the upcoming fight beetween these two. Bj is my favorite fighter for a number of reasons so im rooting for him. Just curious to see where you guys stand on this fight and who you think will have there hand raised at the end??

not sure how is see this going. I could see it either way. I could see Penn catching him early, or if it goes late I think GSP will wear him out

Saying that one or the other has this fight under wraps is a pretty risky statement. They are both extremely talented fighters who have their strengths and weaknesses (tho not many). Its going to be a great fight!

Oh yea, this is gonna be great. Be nice to see a 5 round war..ending in the 5th of cource...by knockout ...by either. Both are great.

I don't care who wins I respect them both greatly, I just hope it's a good fight and that it does not go the distance

bj penn has been slacking training for this fight while george trains his ass off everyday all day. he used to be a garbage man just to pay for his training while penns fam is one of the richest fam's in hawaii. penn said george is fake and penn said the only thing he has on him is strength while i remember in the first match up pierre took him down numerous times and penn couldnt do ****. penn used to be one of the best but latley hes been a real **** talker and thats not cool. i see george ending it by 3rd. penns cardio better be up to par with george cause george will run his ass dry and gassed quick if not.

i agree with you land on the bj sh*t talking but you still gotta give bj credit. the dude is a natural fighter. if bj's cardio is on point i gotta give it to bj if not i think gsp is just gonna chip away at him.

well!..i have to give my full support to our local boy b.j penn!..because he reps. the 808 state bay-bay!

This is a fight I have waited along time to see again they are both great fighters! I see it no different than the first going 5 instead of 3 but GSP IMO will pull off another decision. I don't really care other than it should be a great fight!

you know i gotta root for the island boy. Gsp will have a strength advantage for sure (its his weight class)and the only way i see him winning is with takedowns and control on the ground for a decision or ref stoppage via gnp. BJ will knockout Gsp if the fight remains standing imo. The more it is on the feet the more it goes in BJs favor, BJ by ko or sub.
The UFC primetime special or whatever, you cant really believe what you see ie: BJ on vacation and stuff, that could be all hype you never know. Gsp seems very determined and focused for this fight and i think it could go either way. One thing ive always told my friends, "dont ever bet against bj penn". Its BJs chance to make MMA history the only fighter to hold belts in two weight classes simutaneously.
Ill have my RVCA BJ Penn shirt and fight shorts on!!! CHEEE WHOOOOOOOO!

i never said i was 7 i said ive been watching it long before it got big cause my dad watched it so he got me into it a while ago. anyways off that subject yes i agree with you about bj penn i never said he wasnt a good fighter all im saying stop talkin **** and do it. he is already named one of the greats so you cant put anything past that but gsp i bet has changed his whole fight game around for this one remembering last time were he almost got ko'd so hes gonna be a different fighter this time and prolly isnt wating to do stand that much so bj has to be ready for the takedowns or its gonna be the same fight as last time. thats all im sayin.

this is from a sports betting site:

Georges St. Pierre - 175
B.J. Penn + 135
Georges St. Pierre is the current favorite at -175 odds meaning that for every $175 bet will payout $100. For a UFC/MMA bet odds tutorial click onMMA Bet Odds Explained. The underdog BJ Penn is a + 135 odds meaning that for every $100 bet on BJ Penn will payout $135. Heavy early betting action has been on BJ Penn moving the betting line in from a December opening line GSP -245/ BJ Penn +175 to the current GSP -175/BJ Penn +135.
UFC 94 Bet Picks/Prediction: Georges St. Pierre Vs B.J. Penn
Take Georges St. Pierre -175. This should be great MMA fight with both fighters able to KO or submit their opponent in a heartbeat. Expect a more tactical fight as both fighters pride themselves on coming up with a fight game plan that is unexpected. Expect 5 round decision win by GSP with superior take downs and grind it out win that will take advantage of GSPs superior cardio over 5 rounds title match. GSP has shown he can take down world class wrestlers in the past in Hughes, Koschek and Fitch and will also be able to take down BJ for points.

thanks for the post, but the one thing I disagree with is that GSP can sub BJ. I just cant see that happening

I would imagine Judgement Day ( USP LABS training log ) , a fellow Canadian that does MMA, is a massive JSP fan. One of my training partners is as well (It got him into Jujitsu/MMA)
