He does remind me of chuck when it comes to his camp thinking hes a god. Chuck and BJ dominated their times and BJ still has a LOT more fight left(chuck not so much) but changing a camp can be a great choice.
    Seriously. I'm guessing that at home, all he hears is, "you're the best BJ, you're the best, no one can touch you, you're the best....etc.." When he should be hearing, "you need to improve on this, this and this, your TD's are whack, take the game to the floor where you ought to have the advantage..." granted, BJ was never in a position (in his division) to need critical advise, but now is certainly the time. He doesn't need hype men now, he needs real corner men and people who see him as a fighter who needs to improve, not someone at the peak of his game (anymore). Also, I honestly think he'd benefit from going with Jackson or even Couture (even though Maynard is there).

    I don't see where polishing his BJJ will be of any positive effect. He's already the best at it and he isn't an aggressive BJJ practioner like Maia or something. He only utilizes it if the fight should so happen to end up on the ground. He would benefit most from adding some good wrestling and TD's. His boxing style is great and can counter most fighters, but if you're like Frankie and hopping all over the place, he can't hone in and I don't think BJ is going to switch up his boxing style, so I think the best thing for him is to add wrestling and a strong TD.

    Nick Diaz and Karo Parysian was one of the most epic fights, it was like Henderson/Cerrone I, just crazy ground talent being displayed the entire time.

    I love the way Lawler got so irritated and frustrated in that fight. I can still picture his face after one of the times that Diaz tagged him, lol.

    Speaking of Hendo, what about his fight with Bustamante? I remember that being a pretty good war...and it really goes without saying, Saku vs Newton

    Honorable mention: I think Rodja or Alexander told me watch this fight a few years ago, but Manhoef vs Cyborg for an all out slugfest.

  7. he is talking about Ben Henderson, not hendo. WEC

  8. Oh ****...I just saw Hendo and got excited, lol. My bad. Cerrone didn't click. No wonder!

    I work the swing shift and have been up since about 830 last night. I guess it's time for bed, lol

    Seriously, I'm off to bed. This is like the third thread if ten minutes that I have F'd up in.

    Sorry for that guys!

His corner are a bunch of hype men, with no strategically helpful advise. Also, BJ needs to learn how to more effectively execute TD's and stop taking the Chuck Lidell approach to utilizing his ground, which was primarily for defensive purposes.

    Nate Diaz was sadly, the best fight on the card. I like Nate, but everything else was stale. Maynard and Florian spent the entire 1st round feeling each other out and fought for 2 rounds. The Maia fight looked borderline rigged with how lifeless his opponent was, until he pulled out these magnificent escapes at the end of every sub attempt. Couture/Toney, what else was to be expected. The fight was truly over at 30 secs, when Randy landed the first TD. There was much to like about 118 unless you were an Edgar fan, in which case, I short changed in respect, but he definitely brought it.
    The problem with Penn, what i hear, is that he is basically his own coach. So he never trains as hard as he needs to because it's ultimately up to him. He called over my BJJ instructor, Lucas Leite, before his last fight against George St. Pierre, along with many other experts, and he said that BJ only trained with them intermittantly.

    That doesn't surprise me in the slightest. It's sort of what I presumed, as far as BJ being his own coach, surrounded by praising hype men.

    P.S. Just noticed your location. I work in Diamond Bar, off Sunset Crossing in the Washington Mutual building.

  11. ...the "advice" his cornermen gave him between rounds somewhat lends credence to this as well.
