    Good thing he's going to sub Sherk in the second. Then he won't have to worry about five rounds.

    No doubt Penn wasn't in his best shape against Hughes and St. Pierre. However, he has gone three rounds several times in his career and went five twice, though the five rounders weren't his best showings (besides, Hughes and St. Pierre fight in a weight class up and are much bigger fighters than Sherk). In his last two contests against Joe Stevenson and Jens Pulver- real lightweights- he seemed to be in excellent shape. Now granted, those fights didn't go deep into the fight so that's pure conjecture (he just looked strong for the short time he fought).

    So, we'll see. He's been sleeping in hyperbaric chambers and working out harder than ever as per the people around him. I'm looking forward to seeing what transpires.

    He looks essentially the same to me that he looked when he first got to the UFC at LW. Jens Pulver is now a FW. Stevenson, while a tough guy, is not a world beater. He's "gone" 5 rounds, but as you say, not his best showing. It's not coincidence. The only time I can think of him winning a third round in a fight was against Gomi, and in that fight, he got a bit lucky that Gomi gassed even more then he did, because they were both dying out there.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...

    I think BJ Penn coasts on his talent. When things dont come easu for him I think he mentally gives up. Gassing is nothing more than he didnt prepare himself to have to fight it out because he expected his talent to do the job. As he is mosntrouslly talented that isnt far-fetched, his talent wins for him often

    I think it reflects a lack of desire to win that a champion needs. I think Sherk is the harder worker. I Hope to God Sherk wins but we'll see.

    It'll be interesting to see what he comes into this fight looking like.

    This is supposedly going to be his last fight with the UFC, and he has an opportunity to screw things up for Dana if he beats Machida who should be an easy call for next title shot after Forrest if he should beat Tito.

    Default Ortiz v. Machida Post Fight: What Happens?

    I think one of the two sides, either the UFC/Dana or Tito is going to take the high road after this and really try and make the other one look bad, just not sure which one yet.

    A lot will probably depend on the fight's result.

    I don't picture either of the two taking the high road, so if Ortiz wins, he'll call Dana a p***y, if Machida wins, Ortiz won't be allowed an interview, much like Arlovski.
