Some of you are being ridicalous in your vendetta against BJ Penn.

You talk about him like his a chump and a coward but he fought with ann awesome athelete and was beaten, beaten hard.

He couldn't fight no more, he had nothing left because Georges had pummelled him but i believe BJ would of continued to take that punishment until he was out.

I think to say he quit, is twisting it hugely. Its like saying to a fighter who got knocked out, his a quiter. the fact is BJ had nothing left to fight, he was beat, he didnt quit whilst having more to give. I didnt see him tap when put into a bad posistion.

That being said i dont think badly of GSP for when he did tap from strikes, it doesnt bother me but look as you are all testimony to BJ has this thrown back at him, perhaps with some justification but i think some have taken it too seriously.

People are saying this is what he deserves for running his mouth, to me it was far from constant, he made odd, sporadic comments and ultimately spoke of respect. So i think its harsh to paint BJ as a Tito, Serra character.

Sure, make him eat his words but to be literally ramming it back down with such emotion to me i find to strong
