    Even though he may not go down as the greatest like he wanted to, he's most certainly one of the most naturally talented fighters in MMA history.

    You probably don't hear as much bc he hasn't fought and looked good in a while...but he's still one of the top 3 GOAT p4p fighters in MMA history.

    If BJ comes into the best shape of his life, there's no telling how much faster and stronger he can be, and how much of an advantage it could impose for the Featherweight Division...

    This Bj, maybe the scariest Bj of them all. It's all about adding muscle mass and having a couple of % body fat(mixed in with conditioning). If he can do that, then he can rise immensely from the ashes to ashes and the dusts to dusts... No more, no more, does this bird have a heart of a Raven anymore, but a Phoenix of a hungry warrior...

    Penn never really had a bandwagon, just a bunch of hardcore old school fans who liked the guy because he always came to fight regardless of weight class. The only people who call his fanbase a "bandwagon" are idiots who barely started watching the sport and are probably obsessed with big biceps and abs.

    Exactly right.

    In fact, the term "bandwagon fans" is very oxymoronic term - since fan means fanatic, and if you are a fanatic you are crazy about something; bandwagoners on the other hand are NOT crazy about something if they only support something when winning.

    I admire his skills.

    However I think he is grossly overrated. If he started his career now as a young man, he wouldn't have created the legacy he did.

    You fail in the first sentence. BJ is one of the best ever. BJ nuthuggers were pretty stupid back in the days, but probably not as stupid as those that don't recognize BJ's legacy.

    Im going to guess he lost a lot of fans because apart from a nearly retired Hughes, his last actual win was 2009... given its nearly 2014... Hes about to go 1 - 5 - 1 in his last 7 with three consecutive losses to Frankie and three brutal arse beatings by GSP, Diaz and Rory.

    ...or it could be the constant excuses after every loss... or crying and getting his mummy to testify for him in front of the athletic comission after GSP kicked the crap out of him.

    ...or the repeated lies about being in shape and motivated followed by gassing in one round.

    ...Or the rediculous crap talking he does... "To the death George" before quitting in between rounds etc.

    ...or being a waste of talent with no work ethic.

    Pick one really, Im sure there are even more reasons he has lost fans.

    When your career is based on excuses and not wins (no motivation, greasing, wrong weight-class) you have to ask some serious questions.

    I mean, getting his face stamped on by Machida and attempting a few rabbit punches apparently a selling point for this guy.
