defend what? the fact that he has lost his last two fights? the fact that although he is a prodigy in bjj, he is not an mma prodigy? the fact that whenever he is fighting, people have to preface their thoughts on whether an "in-shape, focussed" bj shows up? if there are so many things to defend, then maybe he was never that great in the first place ..

Penn confirms his move back to 170. He says he was offered a fight he couldn't refuse. So a fight he couldn't refuse that isn't against GSP......

after losing 2 in a row you would think BJ would look for a fight he could actually win for his next one....all i can say is it looks to me like BJ is really really mad at himself for losing those two fights and is going to teach himself a lesson by taking a sound beating at the hands of Mr. Hughes...its kinda along the same lines as banging your head against the wall but this way he wont look quite as stupid when he winds up unconscious on the floor.

i can hardly wait.

MANNNNNNNN Good fight for Hughes! What do they do with Matt after this though? Tough fight after tough fight. You would think title? But him and GSP already fought 3 times :S Maybe move to 185 for a fight?

can I ask what this is based on?? Diego could not take BJ down, Kenny could not do it, Edgar had a hard time doing it in the first fight and BJ held GSP to his lowest takedown % in a fight where GSP tries more than 2 takedowns. Just because Edgar gave BJ problems does not mean other fighters will. Very few fighters have the speed to do to BJ what Edgar did and very few fighters have the skill to do to BJ what GSP did.

Edgar took Bj down like 5 times in the last fight.... He didnt really even struggle for them either.. This is a 145 pounder who matt veach was throwing around and out wrestling before getting tagged with a combination.
