Only thing that BJ would win is respect! GSP via GnP all night to win a Decision.

Wow this fight is exciting as hell, but really.......I'm seeing Penn on his back early and often. I know Penn's take down D is wicked sick, but GSP's sprawl is better. Gsp sets up for his shoots so well, and when they come ....dam so explosive, I will be amazed if Penn stays vertical. BJ will get manhandled on the ground and will eat so many elbows....sick!

I just wish they would stick to their weight classes for a bit, it would be good for both of them to settle out their respective divisions and ensure that we get the fights deserved and expected to be seen once they won their titles. I really want to see BJ v Huerta/Florian, or how about GSP v Thiago. Well maybe they do have theses fights locked down on paper, but I still think that the other fighters deserve their shot to shine as well. No need to put a title on hold for 9 months right now.

I agree.. Fighters are jumping around too much in weight classes even when on winning streaks and such... I see if they are getting beat at a certian weight moving around to maybe find something the fighter is more comfortale at. but now when your winning...

I want them to defend their belts. but if it does happen. GSP's gnp can't get around the way Penn uses Octapus Guard to defend. His td's are gonna take a lot out of him in the first two when he can't get them. When he does land them he's gonna be beaten up from the feet, unable to gnp properly, and constantly defending the best "from his back" game in the business. I won't say GSP can't win a dec, again,,,,, somehow.... But he WON"T finish him. He's in the mindset where he's excited for this fight, that is the biggest varying factor in BJ's training.

from lookin at their 1st fight i dont see how GSP could win, cause now that BJ is motivated n has cardio, It was by SD to n GSP's face was a mess, it will be an awesome 5 rd but i dont see GSP winnin

Penn all the way, I'm tired of hearing about the "new gsp" the guy went to decision with Koscheck, beat a tired old Hughes and to top it off.....beat a guy that he should not have lost to the first time! So now he is "better than ever" ????? I watched thier first fight Penn was lighting him up everwhere it went until he gassed. Bj is flatout the better fighter, the ONLY reason GSP won the first one is because BJ didnt have any cardio. If this fight happens again, expect GSP's face to look a whole lot worse than it did the first time.

I like both fighters, but i think as long as BJ keeps his cardio up he takes this fight.......
