    BJ, you’re the man, but if your heart isn’t in it 100 percent, you should stay retired…

    for who those who wants a piece of bj @ 155, bag them and tag them, it’s a wrapped.

  3. 757 says:

    I don’t want BJ to come back and get killed by the current top dawgs in the ufc. Please stay retired BJ, you deserve it. These new age mma fighters are animals and I don’t want you to get hurt.

      For real that is a not me I really wish people would grow up. Your not funny using someone’s screen name to make assed up comments. Use your own and be a man and say what you feel’ but stop making asshole comments under my name. You look like a big time pussy…like you are afraid to stand up and say what you feel so you just try and play games. I really don’t care other than the fact that the shit you say is stupid. Grow up fool. Grow a pair and use your own screen name..stop hiding like a sissy

        Seriously dude? Stop making fake fucking comments in my name. My first comment was from me, and I have been using this screen name for a long time here. Why not just be a man and say it using your own name, you pussy.

    I still think BJ has some untapped potential innn him. If he were to return, he needs to go out of his comfort zone away from all his yes men and try new training with other top level coaches.

    GSP is still on top and winning because he is always bringing in new ways to train all the time. It’s kind of a bitter feeling because I think BJ could have beat GSP if he didn’t grease up. (Yes, I think a top level grappler like BJ knows the difference between sweat and vaseline). So given that I always want to see BJ return for one more serious run @ the title, but at the same time if he plans on coming in doing the same old shit he’s going to get hurt and should just stay retired. Yes men will kill your career.

    I hope bj comes back, I would love to see him get smashed a couple more times.

  6. doc says:

    Shit or git. Now is the time if this guy wants to have a comeback worth while. Only if he trains well away from Hawaii. Other than that, no chance. He’ll come beat some cans and get smashed by the top 5 in LW. All because they train smarter and can last a solid 5 rounds. As if we did not know that 7 years ago…

  7. joe mak says:

    time to give Marinovich bros a call, with those dudes bj can and will captures the belt one more time.

    • brandon says:

      You’re crazy, it don’t make no difference who bj calls he’s not winning no title. Bj could never even get close to beating henderson and no way in hell gsp.

    i’m a brick/stone mason by profression, i do not built a wall, i built a row of bricks by one at a time, each brick is level to perfection till the wall is completed, i’m not building a wall, just one brick and one brick only at a time.

  9. GRT 3000 says:

    pure class.

  10. Ddddddd says:

    BJs losses are better than most fighters wins. If BJs fightin I’m watchin. If the UFC isn’t offering him some sweet as$ job I’d be very surprised. BJ needs a Nike shirt: BJ knows BJj

    • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

      I agree. If BJ is fighting, I am watching. Hate seeing what happened to him the last 2 fights, but he has put that kind of beating on others in the past too. He’s just taken a few now. I see a run at 55 for him as long as his mind and hunger are in it. Maybe he needs TRT to get the fire back, Seems to have worked for Vitor, et al.
      I’m going to say it but he needs a NIKE shirt that should have said BJ knows WRESTLING and he wouldn’t have lost 2/3rds of the fights he did. LOL.

    God I love that dude he’s a true pure martial artist. Lets not forget he fought machaida u think Gsp would do that
