    Come on BJ! Show this punk why you’re the greatest. This is the best you’ve looked in a long time, the best is yet to come and it starts with Rory!

  2. Brian says:

    WTF? That was a horrible showing by BJ. I’m no longer a fan

  3. john says:

    BJ is and always will be the greatest warrior the UFC has to offer. It is apparent tonight, more than ever, that he needs to retire. A light weight comeback is plausible but It won’t happen. Thank you BJ for your inspiration and fighting spirit and there will never be anyone like you. Thanks for going out there and giving it your best, I genuinely appreciate your spirit and look forward to seeing you in the Hall of Fame!

  4. WTF! says:

    Hey BJ, that was horrible! F***** HORRIBLE! You should’ve stayed your ass at the lightweight division.

  5. Showoff says:

    WTF! Wow that was the performance ever by BJ! Time to give it up! You winning the welterweight title was a FLUKE!

  6. Nick says:

    WOW! Horrible performance! Winning the Welterweight championship looks more and more like a FLUKE NOW!

  7. Todd says:

    BJ needs to stop with the 170 thing. The competition has gotten so much better then when he held the 170 belt. He can’t keep hold the 170s down, he can’t get out when being held down. I’m a huge BJ fan but he needs to start deciding what he wants. Does he want to be great. People will argue and say he is great but at 1-4-1 in his last 6 fights, doesn’t help their arguements. He’s 33, not 40. He isn’t old. He still has time to turn this around, but not at 170. He needs to go back to 155. If he wants to be great, show some dedication and drop to 145. He’s got the frame for it. Talent alone isn’t going to carry him anymore. One more note, people call him the greatest LW of all time but look who he beat, BJ mauled through a weak LW division. I don’t know, just very frustrated.

  8. Blake says:

    Funny how Bj’s fans are turning on him talking shit, fuck you fake ass fans! I bet you guys were rooting for him before the fight! Bj is getting old and to small for the welterweight decision. If he fights at 155 he can come back strong . All the love to bj still my favorite fighter of all time!

    • Saber says:

      It’s crazy how quick they turn on him. Rory came in too big for him, where BJ felt he had something to prove at 170. BJ was always best at 155, and although he came in to this fight in great shape for 170, 155 is where he made his name. BJ knows natural ability needs conditioning when your youth escapes you, and now that he knows this he should try a run at 155 again. BJ changed the game, I truly believe in his legacy, and he deserves recognition for what he’s done in the sport.

  9. Barn says:

    keep your chin up BJ, im sitll a fan. Good luck with what you decide to do next.

  10. Barn says:

    props to BJ for always stepping up and taking on fights with guys bigger than him

  11. Rasta says:

    We all new that penn wasnt gonna win rory was too big and strong,penn is still my favorite fighter just time to hang em up man,and henderson earned my respect I thought nate would do better but oh well and shogun deserves a award or some shit because his fights are aleays the best!!

  12. Sean says:

    Props for going in there against ALL the odds. You’re one of the very very few who would even think about attempting something like that. Still never knocked down, that’s unbelievable.
    BUT, please if you ever decide to make a comeback you gotta be as fully into it as you were before you ever made a name for yourself. You have to be fast, strong, and going for the finish at all times…you can’t wait and relax in there anymore, the competition has gotten much more solid over the years and you need to keep up with that. You still were very impressive though all things considered.

  13. Ian says:

    Rory was a lot bigger than BJ, but I give props to BJ for hanging in there but it is time for him to get back down to 155 and train with the Marinovich brothers if he wants to continue to fight. These guys should be in the middle to light heavy weight division he is fighting and they are just to much. He weighed in at 168 without having to do drastic measures to get to that mark, but Rory easily went back to around 200 pounds after the weigh in.

  14. BJ IS MY HERO says:

    BJ your my idol and will forever be my favorite fighter. Win, lose or draw I’m a huge fan and will always stick with you! Not like these bandwagon dudes jumping the train.. BJ you are the man, fighting bigger guise then you, steppin up to fights, never giving up! I am too proud of you B! Yes BJ lost in reality but not in my eyes, you stuck thru it with heart, he couldn’t finish you! That’s what champions are made of! #TRUE WARRIOR

  15. dave says:

    once again bj fooled me…just like all the tough takl befor the gsp fight,saying he would rather die then quit…now this tonight, is lazy was the best but lost his drive..its very very clear his cardio was its best at lw when training with the marv bros…too bad the marv bros arent yes men and bj had to part ways…even in shape cutting 0 weight bj started gasing after 2 minits into the 1st round,,im totally tired being a fan..i gave away alll the t shirts..
