    For some reason, I think we may end up seeing GSP doing windmills and backflips in the middle of the octagon.

    No one agrees with Adolf.

    Penn's flexibility is something and Sherk had problems with it (and Stevenson) but I don't think GSP will. Cheering for BJ, but I think GSP will be on top for almost the duration of this fight

    Any chance GSP will just be too big and strong for BJ Penn? I haven't seen Penn fight in forever but when I did he looked a little soft, whereas GSP looks very powerful.

    There was an article in the paper today where Gia Sissouri talked about helping GSP improve his wrestling at the Montreal Wrestling Club. He had a pretty good line contrasting wrestling and MMA: "It takes 10 to 20 years to become Gia Sissouri, and only 3-6 years to become George St. Pierre. But who is more famous? Who has more money?"

    As GSP becomes more and more timid to stand with people, (as a result of his ever improving shakedowns and ground game) he falls right into BJ's trap. GSP Will have a very difficult time dealing with Penn's flexibility and world class ground game. Over the course of 5 rounds, Penn is likely to catch him. If GSP wants to be conservative in there, they will get stood up often, and Penn will have more and more chances to bust GSP's face standing. If nothing else, this fight should put any speculation of GSP vs the Spider to rest.
    I don't think BJ has ever won a fight with a submission from bottom. He just isn't the build to be "catching anyone". Legs are too short to be catching subs from bottom. His only career submissions are from top where he is unlikely to ever be against St. Pierre.

    If he is to win this fight he has to stop the takedown (doubt he can), and win the standup (he is definitely able).
