BJ isn't physically fit like he needs to be when he fights above 155,
it isn't really something you can argue.

I don't see how BJ has shown to be mentally weak at all,
his mental state has never cost him a fight.
His losses at 170 were caused from eating poorly and trying to gain as much weight as possible to compete at that weight class. Even last time Matt beat him BJ was winning the fight. Its the conditioning that costs him at higher weights, not his mental game.

if its choice...then one cant say that he hasnt been actively trying on cardio. if he still gasses, one says that he will only gas IF his opponent is able to push him beyond his pace...again, that in itself we havent seen much in 155lbs...and certainly not recently...though we've seen it ALOT at welterweight...thats just a sign of age catching up with Penn.
Sherk was kind of stuck though,
his wrestling isn't enough to deal with BJ's ground game.
Somebody like Matt Hughes for instance who has a lot more to offer on the ground than just solid wrestling is ok with BJ on the ground, but Sherk's BJJ skills aren't where they need to be to grapple BJ. He had to strike.

Im rootin for Diego "the Dirty" Sanchez.

i was very happy when he ended guida's streak of cave man rape fights. why isnt that guy sponsored by geico?

it would make me equally happy if he took care of BJ.

Sanchez' fights are usually quite entertaining.
