Thats is a fight.
BJ penn has got to sell out. No bull s**t...He better hit the ring in the best shape of his life.
I dont think penn can get Sherks back. Penn has only landed Two submissions types in his Fighting career. The Rear naked choke 3 times and a arm triangle choke( a rear naked choke from the front using your opponents arm to complete the blood choke) One time.
penn only has Two submissions against UFC quality fighters. Pulver last month and Matt Hughes. Both were Rear naked chokes.
The x-factor is Penns knock out power.
Under the UFC rule set he has knocked out 4 people in his 7 UFC wins.
Even more impressive Penn has knocked out 4 out of 5 people in the UFC when he fought under 160 pounds.
Penn has Legit knock out power at 155.
So he is much more likely to knock some one out in the UFC then submit them. Not bad consider we all know how awesome his pure Ju-jit-su is.
The problem is Penn has not ended any fights from his back, and that is wear Sherk is going to put him.
We have all seen him throw really complex submissions from his back ( omoplatas and gogoplatas)
BJ penn has never actually had them work to date in an actual fight.
its going to be a Epic battle. I really hope Penn comes in lean and mean.
