  • Published on May 28, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • Joe Rogan's dream fight that never happened is prime Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Prime B.J. Penn. B.J. Penn 's career doesn't look very impressive on paper compared to the Russian's undefeated record, however, he's consistently heralded as one of the best lightweights ever. He is noted as being incredibly talented, earning a BJJ black belt in just three years.

      No question about it.
      He should've retired after he fought Fitch.
      Just imagine that dude on the juice. Monster.
      Oddly, he's one of the few fighters who we can say near for certain never used.

    During his title run, BJ was regrded as the best LW ever. And he was also a dual champion. And did a super fight with GSP.
    And fought Machida when Machida weighed 215 lbs.

  • Feeby Peels

      Pretty much. GSP and Danaher gameplanned to take advantage of BJ's bottom game being weak. And Khabib is way way way way way way better at being on top and GnPing...

      @G GSP being a welterweight doesn't mean there wasn't a problem of BJ's ground game being exploitable. Khabib is 100 times the wrestler GSP was.

    • G
      G 4 months ago +4

      @John Brown I can't believe I am explaining this, but being bigger and stronger makes it easier to hold some down. Bj beat amazing Wrestlers his size. Who is the best wrestler Khebab beat? Go watch some fights.

    • Drakkonemus
      Drakkonemus 4 months ago +5

      GSP chopped and ate away at Penn on the feet. He cooked him on over reacting to faints and used his 7 inch reach advantage to blast him with the jab. Penn was a world class JiuJitsu Champion and had hands of doom. Good luck laying ontop of him and not getting caught without doing damage on the feet

    Let's put prime BJ Penn in perspective, he fought Lyoto Machida to a decision at heavy weight, I think that says everything you need to know about about BJ.

      @bhoomeerg it was, Machida was a UFC lightweight champion, and fat BJ fought him to a decision, a close decision at that, prime BJ Penn was a absolute monster who would fight anyone any where any time.

      ​@Varawhat does islam vs volk have to do with khabib vs gsp?

    • Vara
      Vara 4 months ago

      @Gareth Lloyd Islam and khabib fighting styles are very similar, Islam is the better striker and more defensive but khabib does have better ground and pound. My point is that GSP would be able to keep the fight standing and with his faints, foot work, and stance switches be able to outwork khabib on the feet. I also don't sense any danger for GSP on the ground unless he is gassed which I don't see happening

  • Kang Grappling

    BJ doesn’t have the heart to beat Khabib. I’ll always remember the video showing BJ preparing for GSP and running with rocks under water and half assing his camp and Dana telling him to get his ass back in the fucking gym. Dana would never have to make a call like that to Khabib. I also used to love seeing the look on BJ’s face when Matt Hughes was pounding his face in the Crucifix.

      Gerardo Arthur 3 months ago

      non I can't dispute that at all, but I'd have to believe khabib is taking bj down at least once and pressuring him the entire fight for a unanimous win. Never seen khabib even come close to real adversity in a fight and don't think BJ is the one to do it.

    • Gerardo Arthur
      Gerardo Arthur 3 months ago

    Prime BJ is my P4P greatest. Hes a problem for all the greats. Great boxing and head movement, heavy hands, granite for a chin, GREAT jitz, haaaaard to take down. He fought out of his natural weight class his whole career. He was a natural 145 but won belts at 155 and 170. If he could keep his attributes and naturally be any size....hes winning a belt at every weightclass. On par with Bones and Silva... Except BJ was never afraid to fight at a different weightclass

    That would be an amazing fight, but I'd do one better, Khabib vs Matt Hughes when Hughes was at his peak, or GSP at his peak. That would be nuts. Would be interesting to see how Khabib would try to wrestle and dominate Matt Hughes on the ground. Hughes was the strongest fighter pound for pound I've ever seen in the UFC.

    It’s all relative and I love when people harp back to the previous generations.
    BJ was the f*****g man at lightweight in his generation, just the same as Khabib was in his time.
    It does my absolute nut in when casuals say things like “BJ penn and GSP may have been good back then but theyd get killed by todays best”….it’s all relative, and if you think that way then you kill your own argument right at the start, because if it’s true, then you’re saying that no fighter of any generation is valid unless they can stay at the top for all eternity.

    I still feel like Khabib would win. Since innovation in the sport changed it so much.
