You don't know much about MMA if you don't think BJ takes Yair down and submits him

    I see Yair being put down in an upset. Though I wouldn't consider it an upset if BJ wins.

    I wouldn't guarantee Penn do do anything at this point. However He may go down as the ballsiest fighter of all time

    I know a lot about MMA, and if you did, you would know it's impossible to predict a fight like that

    A young kid who is coming up and close to his prime vs a legend who has not fought in 2 years and is clearly past his physical peak? There is no guarantees of anything.

    BJ ain't doing shit. Yari is a horrible match up for him. UFC screwed him for the iv and pulling out. Sean Shelby is a nerd.

    I certainly could see it. Bj has always had underrated wrestling, he just doesn't have the gas tank to stick to it usually.

    With how bad Yairs hands looked against leeroy though I would think BJ's easiest path to victory is through boxing.

    Back in 2014, Roots of Fight did a really cool mini documentary on Penn. They interviewed him at the Mendes Bro's new academy in California, and had some fun clips with other fighters like Florian and Rousey talking about BJ.

    At one point they hand Penn an iPad and he watches the old footage of him winning the Mundials 15 years ago - they splice footage of his epic win with his reaction watching it.

    Penn made this somewhat bone chilling comment I'll never forget - he says "My triangle is a diamond now. It hurts when I try to close my legs."


    ......


    Time waits for no man, and the lighter divisions are a young mans game. At 38 he may as well be 130 in a division like featherweight. He's one of my favorite fighters of all time, arguably my favorite - but his body can't will itself through the rigors of MMA anymore.

    This is a bad matchup and an ill advised return of the Prodigy. War BJ.
