Watch the difference here between Matt Hughes (1st opponent) and BJ Penn (2nd opponent) when dealing Georges St-Pierre's low kicks.
GSP would low kick once, then sweep the standing leg of the opponent who'd attempt to automatically check the next kick.
BJ Penn calmly stops the low kicks without even breaking eye contact. Wow.
Also check out BJ’s black belt trunks. Iconic.
GSP went on to win by beating BJ Penn by TKO in R4 as the main event of UFC 94. Seems like it was ages ago.
UFC 94: St-Pierre vs. Penn 2 was a mixed martial arts (MMA) pay-per-view event promoted by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on January 31, 2009. The card featured five televised MMA bouts, as well as five un-aired preliminary bouts. It was the second UFC event of 2009 and took place on the weekend of Super Bowl XLIII.
If Georges St-Pierre v Khabib Nurmagomedov actually happens as Khabib's last retirement fight then we are in for one hell of a treat. Everyone seems warm to the idea, even Dana White. Early indications are it happens in early 2021.
Any thoughts? Think GSP might take it?
