This iz deep, what you´re sayin´, my friend...
I'd say Penn fans were still worse though. There was nothing like it.
Yeah, it was a clear GSP win but Penn beat the shit out of him in round 1 while GSP just won the 2nd and 3rd with clear control but not as decisively.
Fights like this always end up being called "robberies" for some reason when in reality they are just close fights with one guy having a fairly clear edge based on the criteria laid out for scoring a fight under the unified rules of MMA.
Lol, I like you dude and am a much bigger Penn fan then GSP fan but your "no rush limited skill set" narrative is fucking ridiculous since he won RDS 2 and 3 by demonstrating a more complete skill set then BJ utilizing all aspects of MMA to neutralize and take over a fight in which he was badly beaten and demoralized in over the opening 5 minutes to the point he was contemplating not answering the bell after the 1st RD due to his broken nose and shaken confidence.
In true GSP fashion though despite his fear and apprehension he did go back out and scored the biggest win (at the time) of his career.
29-28 against a guy who was more a 145 fighter
BJ Penn was something special in his prime,
BJ Penn inflicted more damages
in the rematch GSP cheated because he was scared, he greased his body
ok, no hate for boss, letz try to solve this riddle together.
1/ What was No Rush´s corner´s gameplan b4 the fight?
2/ What was No Rush´s corner´s assessment of the 1st Rd, at the end of that Rd?
Im fully aware that no No Rush ´tards, especially ITT, can answer these 2 very simple questions.
It's the worst split decision in history. Fuckin idiot judge heard the crowd "Oooh" and "Ahhh" after BJ threw up both of his legs in the last minute of the fight, as if he had locked up a gogoplata.
Also, GSP's was cut up from round 1. Idiots can't see past that.
The wars that GSP fans had with BJ fans gives me fond memories. We are still here but the BJ fans have been rather quiet for the last several years.
If the other two judges were more motivated, BJ would have won.
I remember seeing BJ stans argue that round 1 should have been a 10-8.
Because people suck at scoring fights. Clear 29-28 gsp
Holy shit. Reading through this thread, BJ fans are STILL nuts.
Some things never change.
So who was LW GOAT in 2005, 2008, 2011, 2015 or 2018?
It’s safe to say we know the answer in 2020. But if Penn was never GOAT (for a criteria you just defined - must overcome adversity - but I’ve personally never seen defined as a GOAT criteria before), who was it before Khabib? And why?
Please don’t say Bendo. “There wasn’t one” is an acceptable answer.
Further to this. Turn the volume off - no commentary and no interference/influence.
When I said GOAT-Contenders, I meant P4P GOAT.
Its pretty obvious Penn was the LW GOAT until Frankie dethroned him, then beat him in the rematch, and later humiliated him in the 3rd fight.
Since then, its also very clear Khabib is the division's GOAT.
no, you're wrong. anyone that watches that fight will agree with me and laugh at you some more.
Mean thread, it's been a rough few years, let me keep my rose glasses.
I watched that fight live at the time, and was a sherdogger at the time, and I don't remember anybody ever calling it a robbery.
Cause of BJ and his fan base who are fanatics. It was a close fight, a split decision, but Penns fans couldn't let it go. And part of that was based on how GSP looked after the fight.
GSP won the last two rounds IMO, should have been a UD
