‘UFC Primetime’ Episode 2: Just the Important Stuff

Though last night’s episode of UFC Primetime opened with BJ Penn expressing frustration about the way he was portrayed in episode 1, it didn’t show him actually quitting the production and storming off or anything. In fact, the supposed tension wasn’t reflected at all after the opening scene. Episode 2 took a closer look at Penn and St. Pierre’s training camps and families. We see Penn’s new daughter, and his new nephew — the fifth member of the Penn clan to be named "Jay Dee." Meanwhile up north, GSP’s grizzled black-belt father shows up to his training camp, and we get a small glimpse of the effect that the elder St. Pierre had on his son’s life. Notably, there was no Dana White whatsoever in this episode, which I guess means he has more important things to do than babysit the lightweight champ. The third and final episode of UFC Primetime: St. Pierre vs. Penn airs next Wednesday. Will BJ show up for it?

its pretty easy to say if bj is in shape he will win............dumbass in your mind he cant lose and if he loses it will of course be a result of the shape he is in because he just has not had the time!!!or maybe had a bad burger, better start thinkin cause you will need to explain why canadians are not making excuses for our fighters just backing them 110 percent and winning. oh ya good luck lol

Anyone else hating BJ more and more as every second passes or is it just me?

Like someone mentioned before- it's one thing training with the best, and a completely different thing being the best. Then again, I'm really on the fence with this fight. It's going to be an absolute war!

I meant if gsp gets rocked or dropped then bj may take it to the ground, worded that poorly.
Armfarmer- January 22, 2009 at 6:06 pm
I don't think that matters that much I think bj is going to want to stand and bang and outstrike him. Maybe if he gets rocked or dropped then he may take it to the ground. I don't really see bj coming in with a wrestler game plan though and repeatedly trying to take him down. I think gsp will be the one looking for takedowns.

When GSP was training to fight Koscheck, he was in Albequerque with Greg Jackson's camp. Rashad Evans (lhw) had a lot of difficutly taking down St. Pierre, so I don't see BJ having an easier time. His sprawl defense is amongst the best in mma, and he's comfortable fighting from the ground. His ground and pound (a la Sherk) is dominating at times. As for the jiu jitsu aspect, they're both black belts, but GSP's verbal submission win over Hughes was pretty sweet (referring to the change up from one submission to another). It's the fight game, everyone loses at some point or another. You can learn from your mistakes (as GSP did with Hughes and Serra), or you can whine like a little b*tch like BJ does (Hughes, GSP, Pulver). Koscheck, Fitch, Hughes, Trigg were all solid wrestlers. Serra's a black belt in jiu jitsu and GSP took him to the ground at will, no fear. I've got a feeling BJ's not going to escape this fight unscathed, but at least he'll have his proof that he lost, lol.

"armfarmer: it's cagepotato, man. we're not gonna proofread your novel."

Ok.. sorry I expected someone that comes to a website to read articles and discussions to read something. My bad.

For the record, I'm not a bj penn fan. I never thought he was that good and I never liked him. I bet 2,000 dollars on matt hughes to beat him the 2nd time around because I thought it was impossible to win. I thought the 1st time was a fluke and he was going to get crushed. I won the bet but that fight and every fight he's had sense has gradually changed my mind. BJ is really good and to say he has 0 chance to beat a guy matt serra beat down is crazy.

hey man..Liddell was KTFO, Yoshida was KTFO, Wanderlei was KTFO....
Serra did beat GSP but it was a (t)KO..big difference between a tko and sleeping straightlegged like the above list....
Can't wait for this fight....

Am I supposed to be honored when TUF Guy uses my handle to make it look like I wrote it so he can try to pick a fight with me?

I'm not? Oh, ok.

everytime they show penn they usually show him running hahahaha that doesnt make him look like a badass??? NOW GSP.....FUCKING BAD ASS RIGHT THERE MANG!
derrick- January 22, 2009 at 12:25 pm
i believe gsp has improved more since their last fight and he knows what it feels like to lose his belt when he is the favorite and i just dont see him losing it for a long time. i beleive that he will manhandle bj and he will punish him early and often and finish him in the closing moments of round 1 but thats just my opinion
Dr.- January 22, 2009 at 12:25 pm
People thought that GSP was going to avoid Serra's ground game (GSP/Serra 2) but GSP took it to him, destroying him in his element. And while Serra is not a perceived top challenge, his JJ was said to be better. I think GSP is going to take it to BJ to make a statement for BJ's comments and to rule out a debatable decision. Saying that BJ is a better striker than GSP is amusing. I look forward to that thought being busted and seeing a post-W back flip.

Comparing opponents doesn't tell an accurate tale because what one does for a certain fighter, another would approach in their own way. Fights are made by styles and strengths. Unless BJ and GSP are carbon copies, it's all spec.

um that would mean first its business training gsp, then outside of tri star, they are very close friends..

to creamy ca roll fitch didnt get overwhelmed by size and strength, maybe strength but in reality fitch is bigger than st.pierre so he actually had the size advantage

Whats up with GSPs trainer? "We have 2 relationships first I'm his training second were really good friends were very close"

haha "fedor a million ankles", nice name.

This will be a great fight, I hope GSP throws Penn back to the LW division with another L on his record.

Why does seem like most of the talent that comes from Canada has a French accent? We're not all french.

Does anyone know where I can watch the entire episode?

"armfarmer: cmon bro. no one read that shit."

Obviously someone did. Sorry I should have realized that reading 3 paragraphs is too strenuous for many readers hear. Didn't mean to hurt your brain. I don't know what I was thinking making valid points to back up my opinion.


There is that more appropriate?
dubbydoo- January 22, 2009 at 11:00 am
Gsp will keep penn at a distance at first, keeping him at bay with lick kicks, superman punch, figure out his timing, then jab and shoot for the take down..he then will continue to wear his ass out with little annoying punches and elbows from the guard, then take his back.. It will be yet another dominating win for the canadian once again. Sence the serra loss, tell me at any one point that gsp has been in a bad position. He is just one notch above everyone else in the division. Even natural lightweights that try to move up to 170lbs. Come on guys, this cant be hard to debate.. All of you penn lovers are supporting your dude and rooting him on to win... but theres a little voice in your head saying "fuck! Penn is gunna be eating his oats and banana protein shake through his ass!"

Step 1: Goldberg: "and HEEEERE WEEEE GOOOOO!"

Step 2: GSP bull rushes and takes BJ down.

Step 3: GSP pounds the shit out of BJ.

Step 4: Goldberg: "IT'S ALLLLL OVER!"

Step 5: GSP does a back flip.

Very well put 'ButItHurts'...
Unfortunately what sells in the MMA world is not always what is best for the sport. When the exact opposite should be true. GSP by every sense of the word is a classy, respectable martial artist. He shows the true nature of what it means to be a public sports figure. Hard work, discipline, respect, maturity... this is the kind of person I want to see fight. Not some jack-ass saying hes 'going to kill'... and calling his opponent a 'bitch' and a 'quitter' for tapping.
True fans will always apprechiate those who show respect for their oponents, no matter what. History will show who the better man is, win or lose.
dubbydoo- January 22, 2009 at 10:26 am
lets be realistic..Penn is a great fighter, probably the greatest natural fighter in all of MMA with exception of Fedor. Hes def the top LW in the world and thats a given. But thats the LW divisions. He is stepping up into GSP's division. GSP will dominate which ever way this fight goes, Either to the ground or standing up, GSP has trained with top BJJ experts in the world. There is absolutely no way BJ stands a chance in there at 170 against a guy that has dominated the likes of Fitch, Hughes, Kos, Serra, and yes even penn.. Anyone who thinks that penn won their first fight is an insult to my intelligance( wait did i spell that right?) yeah gsp was clipped on the nose and it triggered a nose bleed.. Other than that gsp superior wrestling was able to take down penn at will and win a decision victory. Plus gsp wrestling, kickboxing, takedown defense, BJJ, strenght and size will be way to overwhelming for penn to stand a shot..GSP wins 9 out 10 fights. GSP Rear naked choke. Rd. 3 ( after he wears penn down and takes his back)
