UFC 94: Georges St. Pierre vs. B.J. Penn 2

This was quite a disappointment for BJ Penn fans. The fighter looked outmatched, outclassed, out boxed, out EVERYTHING. I must say… a complete beat down. In comparison to their 2006 battle, this match did not live up to its hype. You might say it was like watching an older brother take his younger brother to the ground and repeatedly beat him to submission until mom or dad came out to stop it.

Kudos to GSP for dominating this fight, but come on, you’re a walking around 185 while BJ is, at most, walking 165. You’re extra 10+ lbs definitely played a key role in you taking BJ down and laying on top of him while swing those razor sharp elbows. BJ, we know you made your money in this bout, but please come back down to your natural weight class and start your title defense against the likes of Ken Flo, Huerta, or Guida. Overall, not impressed with this fight that claimed to be the “GREATEST REMATCH IN MMA HISTORY”. Good luck to GSP vs Thiago Alves and hope BJ’s face heals up soon as he heads back down to 155.
