These fights sound so damn badass...
The replays on Gray were complete bullocks. His explanation is clearly spelled out on tape, but yet the moronic judges still refused to see what actually happened. Hopefully they'll revise the decision in the coming weeks.
It was a much better event than I thought it would be, and I had it rated pretty dang high in my mind. Jens brought more to the table than I thought he would against BJ; I really look forward to seeing him back. His attitude was so far above and beyond virtually anyone in MMA as a whole; all we needed were Rich Franklin and Anderson Silva in there and light would've been shining down, dead serious.
Oh, and BJ is still a complete douchebag. After Jens gave him immense props on the mike for a couple of minutes, BJ's reply was....."If you want to know how BJ Penn feels, go to BJPenn.com!" He then runs right out of the octagon....
-Talks about himself in the third person.
-Has a shameless plug for his website on his butt.
-Plugs his website and nothing else in his post-fight, ergo disrespecting Jens in an immense way.
-Has his own head shoved up his butt.....although with Rogan's plastered in there 25/7(He invented an extra hour just for it), I don't know how there's any more room in there
What bugs me the most is I want to like BJ, but he keeps doing crap like this. Also, what the heck was up with his Hawaiin sovereignty shirt? He could wear a banner proclaiming himself to be the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby and it wouldn't surprise me
heres some links to the fights if anyone wants, each fight is one link:
i thought all the fights went well. im with grey, i think he should have won regardless. a tap is a tap.
sucks that manny had to go out like that. he took it well though and didnt seem too upset.
i agree that bj is disrespectfull to jens. the post interveiw with jens, all he was saying was how awesome bj is and how much he respects him now, all nice things. then bj just runs off.
