“I think BJ Penn will win the fight because I believe he has more skills. If he uses all his set of skills, then BJ Penn will win. But, the thing with BJ Penn is sometimes you don’t know what BJ Penn will show up to the fight. If he’s well prepared or injured – I don’t know. Sometimes, I saw him perform very well at the best of his ability he’s the best guy. But when he doesn’t perform at the best of his ability he can be beat. Nick Diaz is very consistent, he has a similar style of fighting all the time. But, I believe if the right BJ Penn shows up, he’ll win the fight.”
Welterweight champion, Georges St Pierre, took to sportsnet.ca to discuss this weekend’s main event between BJ Penn and Nick Diaz.
Not only is he picking Penn to best Diaz he also is in very rare form and compliments “The Prodigy” on his natural gifts and talents.
Nick Diaz thinks BJ Penn is better than GSP, GSP thinks BJ Penn is better than Nick Diaz… You would think that with all the welterweight flip-flop matchmaking that the three men will have to settle this argument on skill the old fashioned way and fight it out.
Who here agrees with GSP’s assessment of Penn? And is anyone surprised that he is so verbally nice to Penn considering their rivalry and history?
