(With tailored suits like that he’s just as slick outside the Octagon.)
After an exhausting and entertaining UFC 94, we sat down with our Cage Potato Super Computer and churned out the arbitrary numerical data for the relevant parties. It wasn’t easy, but dammit, it was necessary.
Georges St. Pierre +361
Whether you think he was greased up or not, he put a beating on B.J. Penn that can’t be explained away (Vaseline didn’t help him dodge jabs or score takedowns, after all). He showed up in great shape, with a great game plan, and proceeded to do exactly what he said he would. GSP is an absolute monster, and at just 27 years old he’ll dominate the division for the foreseeable future. Good luck, Thiago Alves. You’ll need it.
B.J. Penn -86
He’s still the best lightweight in the world. Let’s hope this beating convinced him to stay in the division where he truly belongs. If you’re going to be the smaller man in the fight, you’d better be more active and in better shape. He was neither, and he paid the price. Now give KenFlo his shot.
Vaseline + 590
To hear Penn’s trainers talk, you’d think it was a magical substance. Just a dash and you become a guard-passing, ground-and-pounding machine. We may find out how responsible it is for GSP’s success, because after this incident the athletic commissions will be watching closely, as will the UFC.Read More DIGG THIS
