Tell me about BJ Penn.

I don't like him and think he was overrated.

We've had this discussion several times before so let's not get into it again.

I'm gonna go ahead and predict that having the thread devolve into MMA regulars exchanging injokes and references on page one is not the best way to attract new posters.

I don't disagree but if people don't really ask questions we don't know what you want to know.

So please ask questions. don't feel bad about asking a dumb question, we're all dumb anyway

Oh another important axiom: in case of extremely close, controversial fights, it is only acceptable to talk about the closeness of said fight, and to speak positively about the losing fighter in the immediate aftermath.

After a period of time has passed, the official story will change to the winner actually dominated the fight and the loser was outclassed.

all you need to know about joanna is that once upon a time, there was a young pat barry victim who was definitely going to be the next champion, with coleman-like certainty. however, that young woman was beaten badly by someone named i don't remember. in turn, joanna beat her to the extent that she looked scared, hopeless, and utterly, utterly outclassed. it was essentially like after the long run up to steph curry's impending coronation, during the final game the monsters from space jam crashed through the ceiling and actually physically shat on every player on the court.

I don't think it's fair at all to put rumble and browne in the same category as Joe Son and War Machine.

why's that?

Because browne and rumble were accused of domestic violence but not convicted (iirc) while war machine drat near beat that chick to death and Joe Son is a literal rapist and murderer.

Also rumble got a lot of poo poo for that incident with the yoga mat but having lived in boca where that took place there's an excellent chance that lady deserved to be told off.

It's fitting that was the first fight in ufc history. Just instant "holy poo poo this is real".

The story goes that all the other fighters were watching in the back just chilling and talking and once they saw that the whole mood changed.

After losing to Rickson he went and trained with the gracies and became (I believe) the first Japanese bjj black belt.

Really a guy who should be remembered.

That's actually a pretty good description tbh.

For those who don't know Condit's dad used to be the chief of staff for the Governor of New Mexico, so he's definitely not from the hood.

What are the good GSP fights? I'm reading about him and he seems cool

all 3 hughes fights
Both serra fights
Both bj penn fights
Vs. Jon fitch
Vs. Carlos Condit

Those are the best imo

Note that a lot of gsp fights are absolute blowouts. Still love watching them though because you get to see a real master at work.

GSP fought plenty of guys who could strike.

Its not like he learned some real basic things and then used it to beat up some schlubs. He knew how to box, he trained with freddie roach regularly.

He wrestled guys who could strike and jabbed guys who could grapple.

In broad strokes, yes.

However he still spent plenty of time on thw feet with essentailly everyone he fought and was in trouble exactly twice (serra and condit).

Watch him jab the poo poo out of Nick Diaz or box up Carlos Condit. Alves never really did anything to him either and he was on a tear of juat wrecking dudes at that time

is GSP being gay the funny response because he seems very not-gay, like a man who does not gently caress other men?

but hyeah this should go somewhere like irc where u gyus can argue in real time

Hes never really had a girl friend (publically at least) and rumors of him being gay have floated around for a really long time, its not like willie dee started it.

Scott Smith vs Pete Sell is an all time great that no one ever talks about, but I'm always slightly reluctant to recommend it to new fans in case they don't yet appreciate how a liver shot works.

That night Nakai submitted Gordeau and another dude then got beat up and choked by Rickson. That guy was tough as gently caress.

Then he hid the fact he became blind so as to protect the reputation of the sport.

Then he went to train with the gracies and became the first Japanese bjj black belt. The man belongs in the mma pantheon.
