In the run up to the super fight between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather, HBO ran a series of shows entitled "De La Hoya-Mayweather 24/7". This series of shows lead to a record number of PPV buys, standing at 2.4million. Now the UFC is planning to run a similar series of shows entitled "UFC Primetime: St. Pierre vs. Penn”.

I love 24/7, I think its incredible and it does a great job with hyping up the fight. I'd love to one day see a special like done for a UFC PPV. Glad to see the UFC making a push to sell this fight, I dont see anyway possible that this fight will be boring.

i have never once seen a boring GSP fight. out of his 13 fights with the UFC he's been to a decision 5 times, all of which were very exciting to watch.

I find GSP a little boring as well, but more of a mixed bag. Sometimes he seems to be content to take a fighter down, stay in his guard and GnP, and rarely look for submissions. I'd like to see him try and finish more fights via sub. His standup and ability to switch levels is something I do enjoy watching.

Come on guys that went way over your heads.......he was saying the GSP is boring to watch personality wise. He was just stating that Penn is a funny guy and is always doing funny shit. He didnt say anything about how GSP fights.

Penn doesn't deserve a shot at pierre yet, yes it should be a great fight but I think Penn should have to defend his belt a few times before moving up. I'd like to see him fight Florian.

hold on there captain...i should have phrased my statement a bit better.....i ment boring as in press, interviews and public apperances....things outside the cage, not in it...since that is what the show will most likely be about
