He wasn't fast tracked, he won a competition to get there, he was worthy by winning it and it was just a shame GSP could't see his end of the deal and crush Serra!

I nearly feel the same about all these close/contreversial decisions. Neither done enough to lose or win, so it dont matter either way, perhaps if Lytle had got the decision, they'd be just as many saying Serra was cheated.

So it can go either way, so both deserve to lose or win, not great but there it is.

The fact is though, the result went his way, he won, he got the competition and the reward it offered. Could better guys of got a shot, of course but what can you do! Anyway the point is, it is slightly different to what happened with Swick.

I dont feel particularly sorry for Swick, there are loads of fighters who have seemingly been denied a shot at the Gold. He is no worse than many others.

Besides, he is a darling of the UFC so he has had it better than most.

Yes...they do use him...or did use him I Suppose...my point is that there is no way of denying pretenders to the throne...the only way to do things properly would be to have an order of acession. The UFC dont want to do that. that would tie the managements hands...it might also not be quite as good sometimes I suppose.

Are you still mad at me

Why? lol Thats a laughable comment.

Even if GSP wins, BJ will not lose anything, he is a LW, GSP is a monster compared to BJ,
moving up a weight class and losing isn't humiliating or something,
esp since little out of shape BJ was once the champ there too,
and once held his own with GSP.


I do not think anything of his will be destroyed win or lose

BJ is a strange one, never gives joe rogan the time of day after the fight "If you wanna know more go to bjpenn.com" Yeah thanks for that!?!?!
Now doesn't like the way the editing is going... maybe if he wasn't such a idiot then he wouldn't look bad.
He's in my top 3 of UFC fighters who need a personality transplant, the other two being koscheck and Bisping.

As for the fight, as good as bj has become, gsp is too much for the welterweights let alone a natural lightweight.
Over in 3 rounds.

think about it .. he may be a natural lightweight, but his aura that he is the greatest ... he may be the greatest lw but that is it .. all these fanboys who say he is the greatest won't be able to say that after he loses ...
