    ....None other than BJ Penn.

    Says he was the most highly skilled opponent he has ever faced. That he was a very COMPLETE mixed martial artist.

    St.Pierre says the fight that he took the most damage in was against Carlos Condit. He says the kick Condit landed on him ruptured a vein in his head.

    Oddly enough, he says that BISPING is the toughest opponent he has faced in terms of how durable Mike was.

    BJ was the toughest fight but Bisping was the toughest opponent?
    That sounds weird.

    In terms of talent, BJ was legit something special.

    GSP had said that BJ had the fastest reaction time of any fighter he had seen.

    From a certain point of view it makes sense.

    He said bj was the most skilled but bisping was the most resilient basically. Since he had to put his ass to sleep and no tap makes sense. Dude doesn’t give up, hate him as much as I do I do give him credit for just how tough that sob is

    tough in bispings case means durable

    tough in terms of fight means how hard it was. BJ was undeniably a fighting genius. there's a reason he was called the prodigy.

    Toughest as in could take the most punishment....Bisping
    Toughest to beat in terms of exploitable weaknesses...BJ


    Sometimes stuff is lost in translation

    Bisping’s heart and body with bj’s skills would have been something to behold.

    Both Serra fights were easy...he got caught in the first one and destroyed in the second. Same for Hughes, with him possibly dismissing it as being from when he was too green.

    He beat Hendricks while big rig was CLEARLY on the Vitamin S. GSP took bumps, but he did win the fight.
