BJ Penn takes the next step to legandary status

Posted on: January 20, 2008 1:10 am
 
BJ Penn  dominated Joe Daddy Stevenson to be one of only two men to hold UFC belts in two divisions. Penn cut Stevenson pretty good and dominated the fight in convincing fashion. There has been a new Penn as of late who has taken training and fighting more seriously. Instead of depending on his technique and raw talent. He's fit and trim now and his new approach to the sport shows by way of his increased stamina. Which always seemed to kill him in fights he was winning but always ran out of gas  ( ex.   Hughes, Geogre St. Pierre). Next up is a fight with Sean Sherk. Which if he wins would solidify his hold on the lightweight belt. After which he is bent on a rematch with St. Pierre. After tonights fight he's on the right path to rectifying an almost underachieving career.

BJ Penn takes the next step to legandary status

meant to say.

next step to Legandary status. Not so much. He is a great fighter but stepping into legandary not in my book. I would be more impressed if he went up a weight class and won instead of dropping down a weight class and win a lighter class belt.

couture had to go down a weight class because he had too, he was already at the top with the Heavy Weight Belt!!!!

till he faces the big boys there is no reason why he should be remembered as a legend. Period!!!
