I do not think Joe Daddy has a snowball's chance in hell in this fight, though anything can happen.
Let's remember this is a guy who sprawled and stuffed Matt Hughes, considered for a long time as the best wrestler at 170, and stuffed GSP. BJ controlled the best WW in that aspect, and The Mouth (fitting name, btw ) you honestly want us to believe Joe Daddy is not only going to shoot effectively, but then control? No ****ing way.

Either way, training with an Olympic team in a particular sport with no prior experiencing, and being considered to compete, is pretty telling of athleticism.

I'd really like to see Stevenson beat Penn, but I'd also like to see Sherk get ahold of him after all the junk BJ said.

I remember Penn stuffing GSP through the first 2 rounds, and then a tired Penn being taken down a few times in the 3rd, no?
01-13-2008, 11:30 AM
Yeah, I just rewatched this and reiterate my statement. GSP had no TDs in the first, with one legitimate TD in the second with pure muscle, and one TD I suppose you could award him. The other one was more a mutual falling. He then had two in the third, one slam, and a final TD with :55 left.
For the rest of the fight, BJ controlled the pace and definitely controlled GSP's wrestling. Though GSP was smart and continually went for single leg takedowns from the clinch and elsewhere as BJ would leave them dangling.
BJ did necessarily outwrestle GSP because it wasn't a wrestling match, but GSP only scored one nice TD the entire fight, and two (or arguably three) lackluster TDs. I would most definitely say BJ stuffed GSP.

But he had 3 or 4 in the last two rounds. My point was that yes Penn may have stuffed him a couple times in the first round but overall he wasn't kept from taking BJ down.
Josh K. stuffed him a couple times, that's just the way it goes. Your not going to secure a take down every time you try.

True, but I was more trying to show that if BJ can control the takedowns of such dominant wrestlers, than Joe Mommy (I'm stealing that, it's pretty funny) has no chance of taking him down, IMO.

I believe you are looking at this fight one sided. If all that you say is accurate BJ would have won, but he didn't. And I know you could argue that he could have won but he didn't. The takedowns secured GSP victory. You can argue that BJ was tired in the third round or it was "a mutual falling" whatever that is but that's all part of the game.
Why did the fight not go the other way, with GSP getting tired and then BJ taking him down. That never happened.

He also had very nice punches and leg kicks throughout the fight, points for aggression there as well.
My point was that BJ controlled GSP's wrestling, because he did. That's really the only aspect I was mentioning.

I will tell you how he has a great chance, use his very improved boxing, great wrestling and great JJ. All you have to do is make Penn gas himself out with a few submission attempts and he is done for.

Penn to win over Sherk is my call. Penn seems to be more more skilled but the one thing Sherk has over Penn in my opinion is endurance and heart....if he can make it go over 3 rounds I think he will do it. But I predict another submission by Penn

damn this started out as a full on attack on BJ....makes me think some people are just racist.
come on i cant believe you think joe stevenson was gonna put bj away! Look what happen. Just like what he did to Pulver, just toying with them really he could end it with subs so many times but just puts on a show for the fans to prove he is the top pound for pound. If that showing was not impressive i dont know what planet you haters are from.
Mark my words, BJ Penn is going to have that title for a long time kinda like how Silva is doing in his class. Sherk is going to get owned just the same lol...

Yeah, I think despising arrogance is a universal trait, PP. I don't think their unbridled hatred for BJ was racially-charged. A 'pretentious prick' is a 'pretentious prick' in any colour. Believe me, I know.

That was a great performance by BJ, but do you think he could've gone 5 rounds if he had to? He seemed really gassed after the fight. I know it's hard to gauge with BJ when he's tired or not, but all that leaning on people and strange breathing. IDK, he says he's in amazing shape now, I'm not so sure. Opinions?
01-20-2008, 02:50 PM
I personally don't feel his conditioning is GSP-esque, but most definitely improved. I think the only way to tell is to see a long fight unfold. If Sherk can pressure the fight into deeper rounds, then BJ's conditioning or lack thereof will really present itself.
I know what you're saying about the strange breathing, but possibly an aggravation of that rib injury he incurred against Hughes? Maybe his musculature surrounding that area is weak and causes the fascia between his ribs to sever easily?
01-20-2008, 02:57 PM
Yeah, if Sherk lasts past round 3, BJ is ****ed IMO. I think he is in good shape, not great, but the way he fights he gasses himself. GSP is the same way, but he's just a freak of nature with his cardio and can afford to fight dynamically and not gas. That said, I think BJ will finish Sherk in 2 or 3, he's that good.
The breathing was weird, maybe you're right about the rib. I know I don't lean on people like that ever, unless it was a liter of Beam night.
01-20-2008, 03:17 PM
Yeah, it takes a 26 of Jag., and a run-in with the Police to breathe like that.
I think GSP is simply a freak of nature. That's the only way to explain why he's that lean, with that much explosiveness, and still keeps a ridiculous pace into the end of fights.
I agree though, I think BJ will finish in the second. Sherk won't try to hang with BJ in stand-up, and BJ has neutralized better wrestlers than Sherk in (presumably) worse condition.

BTW, Paul Taylor + some ground skills = Brit Thug Banger Only time will tell if that honor will be bestowed upon him.

Hunt does gas similar to BJ, but it's less severe with Hunt. Hunt looks like he just needs to take a fat boy 5 minute sit down to recover. BJ looks like he might need to get hooked up to some oxygen and possibly an IV. Their is definitely something to it though, and somehow he isn't as tired as he appears.
