    Our girl came in overweight, gassed, and lost a decision on fightpass that I'm going to have to download to even see.

    Oh and that hawaiian guy got starched.

    So does anyone have any explanation for what Penn was trying to do tonight? Is there anyone who isn't either a beginner or 6'7 who fights that straight up?

    Damn. BJ looked just exactly like **** last night. That was pitiful. The only explanation I can come up with is that he was trying to get taken down and was trying to rope-a-dope Edgar and catch him with something specific from his back later in the fight. Whatever his plan was, it was obviously a terrible idea.

    He looked like a white belt standing and he looked like a white belt on the ground. Seriously, he made no apparent effort to sweep, submit, or do anything else of consequence. It was really weird.

    He made it hard for Edgar to pass his guard in the first round at least, but for all of his credentials it's hard to remember him ever doing anything off of his back. But his striking made him competitive with Edgar in the first fight, so why totally tear it down and end up with...that. I would seriously like to see an interview with his coaches about what they were trying to accomplish.

    I guess BJ ran out of mana.

    My theory was that he thought fighting like a pugilist circa 1875 was going to help his boxing, and that he was baiting a takedown, where he thought he was going to have the advantage. Forcing Edgar into the sort of dilemma we used to think of when Anderson fought: Do I want to die standing or in guard?

    Since he generated exactly zero offense in either position, though, the plan was even stupider than it appeared.

    As the saying goes, everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.

    Yeah, but most of the time we can tell what that plan was. This was just getting punched in the face.
